Membership

HEFN offers membership to foundations and donors interested in grantmaking on health and the environment. 

Foundations and donors become HEFN members to:

  • Strengthen their grantmaking:  Members gain information for grantmaking and keep learning through webinars, funder conversations, and meetings.
  • Connect with colleagues:  Members use HEFN to network with peers with similar values and varied experiences.
  • Make more impact:  Through HEFN, members find partners and support for collaboration to make a greater collective difference.

Member benefits also include access to member-only resources, discounted meeting registration fees, and leadership opportunities. HEFN members contribute annual dues on a modest sliding scale based on their level of relevant investment and/or grant support.
