Core staff, administrative capacity, and all other costs associated with Collaborative activities are funded by member organizations. There are two ways to financially support the Collaborative:
1. Membership Fees: Members can support the work of the Collaborative through an annual
membership fee of $2500 (Stream Member), $5000 (River Member) or $7500 (Watershed Member).
2. Sustaining Member Grants: Member organizations can provide grants to the Collaborative ($10,000 +) to support the delivery of the Annual Plan or to sponsor specific Collaborative activities, projects or events.
*Upon request, first-year member fees may be waived so new members can experience the value of the Collaborative to their organization before paying fees*
