You are an organisation whose core activities, or member’s core activities, work towards assisting and protecting vulnerable people and crisis affected communities. It can be a Non- Governmental Organisation (NGO), NGO network or a member of the Red Cross / Red Crescent Movement.

Individuals with a strong commitment for furthering the vision of Sphere.
*Large federations or networks of NGOs have the option to join Sphere and provide the benefits of membership to their own members.
The membership fee is an investment in achieving the collective vision of Sphere. Membership fees provide essential funding for the running of the organisation, while allowing us to leverage substantial grants from major donors so we can achieve our shared vision.
Sphere would not be financially viable without annual membership fees. We operate on a tight budget, overseen on behalf of members by our Executive Committee.
Fees for Full and Associate Members are calculated on the basis of the member organisation’s annual revenue (in CHF).
