Volonteurope Membership

Volonteurope is committed to the widest spread of membership from all countries and regions of Europe. The network welcomes all types of members from across all sectors that are committed to volunteers, volunteering and social action.

Volonteurope is open to members from amongst volunteer organisations, other agencies (civil society, government, education, institutions and private sector organisations) and to individuals (volunteers). The network also recognises that there are organisations and individuals who wish to contribute to our work but for whom it would not be appropriate to be full members. It will therefore welcome them as associates. Membership and associate status is valid for 1 year and runs from 1 April until 31 March the following year.

Benefits of full membership include:
• Nomination for the Board and vote
• Ownership of the association and the network it represents
• Voice in European institutions, with key European stakeholders and priority access for relevant events
• Reduced annual conference fee
• Contribution and access to the network for the exchange of information, best practice, research and other

Benefits of associate status include:
• Reduced annual conference fee
• Contribution and access to the network for the exchange of information, best practice, research and other
• Access to a range of events

Membership and fee structure:
• Civil society: €100
• Government, education and institutions: €200
• Private sector: €300
• Associate – organisation: €50
• Associate – individual: €30

The Board has authority to waive membership fees specifically for individual volunteers, upon request and in special circumstances. Such requests will be considered on a case‐by‐case basis.
