Membership Benefits

Join us.

The Resource Alliance Global Community is all about people power. Our commitment to bringing people together as a community was inspired by the fact that — for 40-years — engaged, collaborative groups of talented people have been the fuel to everything important we have ever accomplished.

A fully engaged social movement is not only our goal, it is our operating model — the greater the number of people who join us, the greater the impact we will have. Our objective is to provide such an outstanding and important experience for everyone who engages with our amazing community of fundraisers and changemakers that non-members will eagerly aspire to become part of our social movement.

A deep commitment to break down barriers to access — for everyone.

We are committed to providing the most equitable access to the best content, collaboration and experiences available anywhere — for everyone. There are two options to choose from when joining the Resource Alliance Global Community. You can either become a MEMBER or a FRIEND. 

For a limited time only (for those registering before 1 September 2020), new Members can enjoy extended membership, allowing them to access content and events until December 2021. This is up to 6 months of bonus content and includes virtual access to two IFCs – in 2020 and 2021!
