Become a Member of the Cultural Alliance

Becoming a member of the Cultural Alliance is simple. Our online membership form will automatically calculate your dues based upon your operating expenses (nonprofits) or annual revenue (for-profits) and give you the option to pay online with a credit card or print an invoice and pay by check.

To get started, please complete this simple form. Once received, we will send you an email with your philaculture account login information and instructions for accessing the online membership form. If you have questions regarding membership with the Cultural Alliance, contact or call (215) 557-7811 and select option 5.

Once invited to complete the membership form, you will need to log into your account to complete the enrollment process. 

We want you to continue to benefit from our work together and the resources we offer to members. We ask all organizations who are able to pay the standard dues rate do so. However, we also recognize how constrained finances are for so many members. To help, we are offering a 10% discount for organizations that are unable to renew or join at the standard membership rate. That discounted rate will be calculated on the membership form once your budget information is entered.

Membership dues are calculated based on your organization's annual operating expenses (nonprofits) or annual revenues (for-profits).
