Join us to amplify the voice of the not-for-profit sector with a complimentary membership during the COVID-19 crisis.
During this time, we want to make sure we are supporting BC’s not-for-profit sector. Therefore, while we work through the COVID-19 crisis we will be offering our organizational membership for free. Our goal is to share our membership benefits with as many organizations as we are able doing this challenging time.
If your organization does have the means to pay for membership, you can become a new member here or renew your membership here. We understand that many organizations are managing tightened budgets and leave this decision at your discretion. We sincerely appreciate organizations who are able to pay for a membership and contribute to our mission during this time.

Sector Advocacy & Collaboration
