Many members make a combination of financial and in-kind contributions. Supporter level members are encouraged to contribute in-kind donations in four crucial areas, which would be potentially budget-relieving:

  • Office costs – office space, Internet access, office supplies, printing
  • Communications – support through various channels including website, social media, online and print publications, editing, translation services:
  • Venue – providing free or low-cost venues for A4AI meetings and events, catering, event support staff.

 

The Alliance welcomes other forms of non-monetary contribution. Please complete the application form, and we will be in touch discuss which membership category is appropriate for your organization. If you have trouble viewing the form below, you can access it directly on Google forms here.
