Membership of Shropshire Chamber

Charity Membership Fund

Shropshire Chamber of Commerce is offering free membership packages to charities and not-for-profit organisations thanks to the support of a new ‘Ambassadors’ programme.

The Charity Membership Fund is being delivered in conjunction with the ‘power of three’ – a trio of local organisations, Aico, Enterprise Flex-E-Rent and McPhillips, who have all donated to the fund with the purpose of supporting the third sector.

The fund generated by the three ambassadors will give these organisations access to our essential level membership, which includes a host of benefits such as HR, tax, legal services and health and safety support.

It also entitles them to a wide range of discounted training programmes, and attendance at six Chamber’s network club sessions of their choice.

To qualify for consideration, the charities and not-for-profit organisations must have a Shropshire postcode, and an annual turnover of less than £1 million.

The Charity Membership Fund is available for application by charities and not-for-profit organisations who do not currently hold a membership with Shropshire Chamber.

The Charity Membership Fund has a limit on the number of memberships that it can provide and once that limit is reached, the fund will close for applications for membership for the current year.

Applications will assessed and considered by the Ambassadors panel, who will make the final decision. No correspondence will be entered into.
