Nonprofit Membership Qualifications – from the SCANPO By-laws:
“A Regular Member shall be limited to nonprofit organizations incorporated under the laws of the State of South Carolina and which are recognized as federally tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or have application pending for such recognition, subject to any additional eligibility criteria as may be approved from time to time by the Board of Directors.”
To reduce impact of budget fluctuations, SCANPO’s Full Nonprofit Membership dues have been adjusted to consider both staff size (using fulltime employee equivalents – FTEs)* and operating budget.**
We have also simplified the structure and created an Associate Membership for those who want to support SCANPO, but may not need all the benefits of full membership.
|Full Nonprofit Members|

*Full-time equivalent employees equal the number of employees on full-time schedules plus the number of employees on part-time schedules converted to a full-time basis.
**For your convenience, your organization’s operating budget can be found on Part I, Line 12 of your most recent Form 990. You can find a copy of your Form 990 on Guidestar.
