SCALE Membership Application
Membership is offered at a sliding scale based on individual program needs and funding situation. Our goal is to make membership accessible to any program that is interested. We ask that programs pay as much as they can to support this important training and community building effort. Keep in mind that a simple fundraising event with a local business, a small fundraising party, a mini grant or a handful of small donations from alumni and local supporters can quickly add up to $500. Note: The more actively you are involved in SCALE activities and the more motivated you seem to use the resources available to you to make your literacy program the best it can be, the more excited we get to support you. We plan to offer scholarships and incentives to off-set the cost of membership to programs who are actively engaged.
