Associate memberships are limited to nonprofit organizations that support (i.e., raise funds and recruit volunteers for) a school (including public and private schools, athletic schools/gyms, and city/county recreation departments). See the PBUSA Membership Agreement for basic eligibility guidelines.
Does your group credit its members for funds raised or volunteer time? See PBUSA's Individual Fundraising Account (IFA) policy.
State filing fees
Filing fees vary greatly by state and therefore cannot be included in the cost of membership. Any state-levied filing fees will be invoiced as applicable at the time of filing. We do not keep any portion of these fees as all funds are transferred directly to your state.
