2022 CNJG Membership Renewal

Thank you for your membership investment with CNJG! You have helped make 2021 a productive year for CNJG and the philanthropic community.

As CNJG is now operating a virtual office, we have completely transitioned to a virtual renewal process for 2022. We are no longer mailing renewal notices. The “primary contact” for each member will be emailed the renewal notice in mid-October, 2021.

“[CNJG has] done an amazing job of meeting people where they need to be in terms of providing additional resources and access to people in the know to help us navigate through very unchartered waters.”
-Margarethe Laurenzi, Community Foundation of New Jersey

The dues investment for 2022 includes a Board-approved 3% increase. Members should base their 2022 dues on either:

  1. Your 2021 giving or
  2. An average of the past three years in giving (2021, 2020, 2019).

This means, your CNJG will be slightly different for the 2022 year. The chart of dues, based on your annual giving is below:

Annual Giving Level 2022 CNJG Dues
$ 0 to $ 100,000 $ 710
$ 100,001 to $ 250,000 $ 850
$ 250,001 to $ 500,000 $ 1,310
$ 500,001 to $ 750,000 $ 1,700
$ 750,001 to $ 1 million $ 2,350
$ 1 million to $ 2 million $ 3,275
$ 2 million to $ 3 million $ 5,250
$ 3 million to $ 5 million $ 7,540
$ 5 million to $7.5 million $ 9,500
$ 7.5 million to $10 million $ 9,840
$ 10 million to $15 million $11,800
$ 15 million to $20 million $14,400
$ 20 million to $30 million $21,000
$ 30 million to $50 million $23,600
$ 50 million to $75 million $32,800
$ 75 million and above $38,250


Government Grantmakers, please use this form.

For additional criteria for dues calculations (ie. Associate members, government agencies, sun-setting foundations, those headquartered outside the state, and other special circumstances), please visit the Membership Policies section of our join page.

The important thing for CNJG is knowing that you will renew. Of lesser importance to CNJG is when payment is received, but payment is appreciated before June 30. Please contact Craig Weinrich, Director of Member Services at 609-414-7110 x802 to make payment arrangements by check, EFT, or credit card (CNJG will add a 3% fee for memberships paid by credit card).

Leadership Gifts

“Engagement with other COVID funds throughout the state as we think about how to be most strategic have been really helpful to understand what others are doing and the implications of how we do our grantmaking activities.”
-Andy Fraizer, Community Foundation of South Jersey

Some members include an additional gift to help cover the costs of CNJG’s operations. Membership dues cover about 70% of our core operating costs. These welcome unrestricted funds help underwrite the many programs and services that CNJG provides to our members and the philanthropic sector.

Please indicate your additional leadership gift on the renewal notice when you return it.

2022 Renewal Timeline

  • October 2021 – CNJG membership renewal notices are emailed to the designated “primary” contact;
  • March 31, 2022 – CNJG membership renewal commitments due (payment is not necessarily due)
  • June 30, 2022 – Dues should be paid by this date. Some members pay in the second half of the year, and we appreciate knowing before then that the member is renewing. Members that have not paid by this date, or indicated to CNJG that payment is forthcoming, will be considered lapsed and removed as members.
  • Mid-October, 2022 – Renewals for 2023 will be emailed.

2022 Member Renewal Process

  1. Member renewal notices will be emailed to your designated “primary contact” in mid-October. In subsequent reminders, the invoices will be emailed to both the Primary contact and the billing contacts at the organization. If you have not received this, please let Craig know. You can also download a blank renewal notice here.
  2. Complete and return the renewal notice with either:
    The amount of dues you are paying (based on your giving outlined above) and when CNJG can anticipate the payment.
    Your pledge to pay at a later point in the year. We appreciate payment before July, but understand some members choose to pay later.
  3. If you need a payable invoice with an exact amount, please contact Craig with the amount to be invoiced. He will email that to you.
  4. If you need EFT/ACH information to send payment in a contactless way, please contact Craig.
  5. Return the renewal notice/invoice with payment or your pledge to renew by March 31.
  6. Update your contact information using the member profile document that was included in the initial email, or have one of your “administrative contacts” listed on the member profile document update this information on the website. There are tutorials on our website about this process, or contact Craig with questions.

Looking Ahead to 2023

Our expectation is that for 2023, we’ll ask members to base their giving on your past three years average, or on your 2022 giving. We will also include the annual 3% increase in dues. The annual increase was approved by the board back in 2016, but for reasons like the pandemic and our CEO transition, we have not added in this 3% increase every year. CNJG has mapped out the dues rates for the next ten years, so members can budget accordingly.

Thank you for supporting CNJG as we strengthen and promote effective philanthropy throughout the state.
