4. Membership, partnership structure & engagement
Section 4 of the GFMD 2021-2025 draft strategic plan.
GFMD’s membership strategy should reflect and complement its overall strategy.
Instead, our membership strategy has largely been donor-driven – i.e., it has reflected donor priorities, such as expanding membership within the Global South and basing the metrics of both progress and engagement mainly on quantitative means such as the number of new members in a specific period.
Here are the key goals related to GFMD’s membership strategy for the period 2021-2025:
By updating our membership tiers, GFMD will be able to define what our members will receive, how it will be delivered, and what type of payment is required.
We are currently exploring how to make these tiers more relevant to the changing landscape of our sector via our new strategy.
GFMD membership fees are currently based on
- 1.The type of the organisation
- 2.An organisation’s annual turnover
It ranges from US$200 to US$15,000 at the level of around 0.1% of annual turnover.
With the new membership structure, GFMD will work on implementing a more thorough membership fee requirement.
