A CLM membership guarantees that you or your organization will join with a statewide network of private and public organizations and individuals leading the charge on expanding the availability, accessibility, and quality of children’s services in the Commonwealth.
Through the league's robust legislative advocacy and coalition work, members know they have an advocate bringing their voice to the table. We utilize our members' lived experience and professional expertise to inform our legislative and educational agendas. We ground our work in solutions that are data-driven, trauma-informed, culturally appropriate, and outcome-focused. We collaborate to implement public policies and education strategies that will best serve the interests of children, youth and families across the state.
Our league envisions and builds a future where all children have access to safety, permanency, and wellbeing.
Is your organization committed to improving children's services?
Our organizational memberships is a perfect match for providers, nonprofits, advocacy groups, schools and special education centers, research groups and foundations, and any other organization that works to support children's services. Our advocacy and partnership will enhance your organization's mission.
Are you an individual with lived experience with children's services? Or a future, current, or past child service professional?
Your voice is a critical addition to our work and a great way to stay involved and engaged in advocacy around children's services. We offer individual memberships for non-organizational affiliates.
Are you a membership organization?
Organizations with a membership structure are eligible for applying for reciprocal membership. If CLM and the partnering organization agree their memberships are mutually beneficial and comparable, they can exchange membership in lieu of membership dues. Reciprocal members may have slightly reduced benefits, per CLM's bylaws.
Members of the Children's League of Massachusetts not only advance the accessibility, availability, and quality of children's services across the state, but receive benefits that will enhance the work of their organization.
All memberships dues are paid annually and provide membership benefits for a year- from July 1st through June 30th.
Organizational dues are based on the organization's child services revenue received from select state agencies and applied against our membership dues formula. Organizations that do not receive state funding have a minimum membership due payment of $500. Individual dues are a flat fee of $75 per individual and confer limited benefits.
