As a member of MCF, you signal that you accept the spirit of these newly adopted principles and you are on a path of learning and organizational growth.

 

5. Membership and Sponsorship Contributions

 

5. a) Membership Contribution

Philanthropy Serving Organizations (PSOs) may become MCF members as Associate Members. PSO members include groups such as funder collaboratives and organizations incorporated with the primary purpose of serving philanthropy. MCF’s PSO members do not include consulting groups or for-profit businesses. Because philanthropy serving organizations operate as allies of MCF, associate members are non-voting members. Dues are assessed based on the total annual operating expenses.

Associate members self-report their operating budget expenses, calculated as Total Expenses which is often equivalent to Page 1, Part 1, Line 18, “Current Year” on completed 990 forms.

Community Foundations self-report the Management and General Expenses portion of their Total Functional Expenses from their most recent completed fiscal year to determine their annual MCF membership dues. This is often equivalent to Part IX, Line 25, Column C on completed 990 forms.

Corporate members self-report relevant annual charitable giving from their most recent completed fiscal year; the calculation may include grantmaking, product donations and/or additional charitable contributions, depending on whether the donations are part of the corporation’s MCF membership group.

Private foundations self-report assets from their most recent completed fiscal year to determine MCF membership dues. This figure is generally found on Page 2, Part II, Column C, Line 16 on completed 990 forms.

Grantmaking public charities self-report annual regular grantmaking from their most recent completed fiscal year; this is often equivalent to Page 1, Part 1, Line 13, “Current Year” on completed 990 forms. Some one-time non-recurring grantmaking may be disregarded, on a case-by-case basis.
