Act of Giving donation levels:

  • Contributor ($1 - $239)

  • Junior Member  ($120) For voting members 18 years of age or under.
  • Voting Member ($240 - $599)
    Voting membership in Act of Giving is based on a personal and/or fundraised contribution on an annual basis. Members may vote on grant proposals and administrative issues.
  • Proposing Member ($600 - $1,199)
    At this level, members may submit grant proposals reflecting nonprofits they wish Act of Giving to financially support. This level also votes on all grant proposals and administrative issues.
