What do membership rates cover?

GEO provides a variety of benefits exclusive to members including, but not limited to: space to connect with peers in-person and virtually; discounts and priority registration to GEO’s sell-out events like the biennial National Conference; peer learning groups and member conversation calls; and a library of resources on organizational effectiveness specifically tailored to meet the needs of grantmakers. In addition to sending the message that your organization is committed to grantee success and having access to a community of more than 6,000 individuals also committed to grantee success, your GEO membership makes you eligible for discounts on subscriptions to The Foundation Review, Stanford Social Innovation Review, and The Nonprofit Quarterly and Alliance magazine, to name a few.
