Membership in the SPTF is available to all types of inclusive finance stakeholders. Since inception in 2005, and until 2017, membership has been free of cost. Our members are invited to take active part in shaping the SPTF’s work by participating in working groups, webinars, and meetings. Members are also the first to know about SPTF news and events, and receive priority invitations to our Annual Meeting.

On January 1, 2018, SPTF will introduce a membership-fee model. This new funding model is important, not only for the continuation of the SPM infrastructure, but also to provide a clear signal to future funders that our members value the work we do. Fees will be applicable to all organizations that are members of the SPTF, but vary by stakeholder group and size. SPTF Board of Directors representatives are holding webinars in September 2017 to provide more information and answer questions. Further details on the new membership model will be provided soon.
