Single-Source and Operating Foundation Membership


Single-Source & Operating Foundations Membership:  

Single-Source and Operating Foundations are defined as 501(c)(3) organizations that both fundraise and provide grants/funding.  

  • Single-Source Foundations can make grants to their own organization only or to their own organization as well as for charitable purposes. 

  • Operating Foundations make grants for charitable purposes only.  

To make membership affordable for organizations of every size, annual dues for this membership category are based on either an organization’s total philanthropic expenditures (grants plus other direct program expenditures) in the prior fiscal year in Arizona or 5% of total assets (whichever is greater). 

As of January 1, 2024:

For the purposes of completing Forms 990 and 990-pf, all membership investments more than $620 minimum may reasonably be reported as a grant rather than an administrative cost.
