Membership Fees for 2020-21

In light of the significant economic ramifications of COVID-19, the Board of Directors of VolunteeringACT has decided to offer half price membership for the 2020-21 year as a way of assisting Volunteer Involving Organisations through a difficult period.

We will continue to deliver the same suite of Member services for the reduced fee.

If your organisation is experiencing financial hardship and you are unable to pay the membership fees even with the 50% discount, please contact us to discuss.

We welcome both organisations and individuals
