The New Membership Structure Is Now in Effect

Thank you for your interest in the Association of Donor Relations Professionals (ADRP), your connection to inspired stewardship. We are excited to offer a new membership structure to better align with you and your organization's needs! Beginning in January 2022, there are four types of memberships: Individual and Group Memberships (includes 3 varied tiered structure). To help you decide which category of membership will be best for you and/or your colleagues as a group, we created a frequently asked questions page.

ADRP welcomes donor relations professionals from around the globe. When you join ADRP, you gain immediate access to a community of colleagues who do what you do every day, and who openly share their wisdom, experiences, and resources. Your membership provides the opportunity to expand your network, stay on top of emerging trends, and accelerate your career. 


There are 2 types of ADRP Membership:

Individual Membership | $185/individual

Covers one person, and is owned by that person. If the member leaves their job, the membership remains with them, no matter who paid for the membership.

Here's what some ADRP members have said about being part of our association:

"Last week I spoke with a newer member who had reached out for guidance/mentoring. She has to pay the membership fee from her own pocket so she asked me if I felt it was a worthwhile investment. I told her YES! ADRP has been the foundation of my learning and growth in this field. The people are amazing and everyone is so willing to share."

"The professional connections that I have established through the ADRP have been an added benefit to all the wonderful resources that the conferences, webinars, and website provide. These connections are a safety net and a cheering section for those times when I create new strategies or programs, or when I begin to stumble. I can count on my ADRP colleagues for their honest feedback and tremendous support!"

"The ADRP International Conference is the best opportunity I have found to network with professionals doing the same work I am doing. I have come away with nuggets of wisdom I can use immediately, and I feel energized about my work."

"I went to my first ADRP conference after only 3 months in my first stewardship role. I had no idea what I was doing so I sent a listserv email, asking if anyone who managed scholarship stewardship might be willing to meet with me for dinner in Providence. Within 2 hours, I had 12 new connections with roles similar to mine. We met for dinner and it was so relieving to know I wasn’t alone! I wasn’t the only one dealing with underspent funds or bizarro gift agreement requirements or demanding development officers."
