DER Membership

DER is a membership-based organization that has proudly supported the San Francisco Bay Area fundraising community for over 50 years by providing high-quality, affordable educational workshops, social events, and other special programs. By becoming a member, you will support the important ongoing work of DER, receive special member benefits (see below) and advance your professional development while contributing to the skills-building of local fundraisers and the nonprofit industry as a whole.

Our Friday luncheon series has hosted many of the top names in fundraising, including executives from successful institutions of all sizes and consultants who have shaped the field of fundraising. All of our programs also provide excellent networking opportunities.
