MCF 2021 Member Renewal

Thanks to all our 2020 members, we’re having an active year at MCF!

Membership renewal for 2021 is following a timeline similar to recent years. But the renewal dues rates will follow a new process. Because 2020 has been a year of dramatically irregular charitable contributions – we’ll base your 2021 dues on 2019 giving. That means dues rates will be the same in 2020 and 2021.

We are instituting this one-year exception to our normal dues rates in order to recognize that many foundations will give dramatically higher sums in 2020. Normally, this increased giving would have resulted in increased dues. We expect that we will recalculate dues for the 2022 member year.

2021 Member Renewal Timeline

  • September 2020 - MCF member renewal process opens
  • February 28, 2021 - MCF member renewal commitments due
  • June 30, 2021 - Dues payments due to MCF


2021 Member Renewal Process

  1. When you’re ready to commit to renewal, just send an email to Kristen Cullen
  2. Kristen will send you an invoice with a due date of June 30, 2021. The amount due will be the same as what you paid for your 2020 dues.*
  3. Keeping dues the same for 2021 means predictability for you—at the same time, MCF’s costs are on the rise. There will be an opportunity to make an additional contribution to support MCF programs through a grant or sponsorship, if you are able.
  4. Send your payment to MCF any time before June 30, 2021.

* If you have a special circumstance which means you think your dues should be more / less than what you paid in 2020, start a conversation with Kristen.

MCF's good faith estimate of the value of goods and services provided to members for 2021 is $525. Thank you for supporting MCF as we collectively advance prosperity and equity.
