Organization Membership

Organization Membership Eligibility and Acceptance

Organization (Institution) Membership is open to any U.S.-based 501(c) non-profit organization or those eligible for such status.  

Other for-profit organizations or firms are eligible for Corporate Membership. For more information, contact us at 312-772-1025;

Non-profit Organizations

Non-profit organizations (Institutions) must provide a copy of its IRS determination letter.


Organizations that have not yet met eligibility requirements to become an Organization Member, but who demonstrate they are actively working toward meeting them and will do so in less than two years, may join FACC as a Provisional Organization Member. The organization must provide documentation of evidence, showing application of incorporation and non-profit status. 

Please Note: Your organization's application must be complete and will not be processed until the check is received and cleared, so allow additional time for processing. If your organization is not accepted for membership, this amount will be refunded. 


Organizations may apply for membership at any time during the year, but membership dues will only cover the current membership year. Our membership cycle is May 1 through April 30. Membership for new members joining FACC from April 1 through April 30 will expire April 30 of the following year. Those who join between February 1 and April 30 will receive membership through the rest of the current membership cycle plus the next membership cycle (up to 15 months). 

Annual Membership Fees are based on the Organization's annual budge size of the most recent fiscal year. Rates are subject to change. 

All applications are subject to approval by the Filipino American Council of Greater Chicago (FACC). FACC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, and for any lawful reason, to reject any application for membership. Membership is granted upon majority vote of the Board of Directors.
