Benefits of Membership

All ICCR member organizations are entitled to the following benefits:

ICCR Staff Support

ICCR’s 14 full time staff members are based at the Interchurch Center in New York. The staff provides members with strategic, program-related communications, technical, administrative and legal support to advance their CSR initiatives. Read more about how ICCR's staff can help advance your advocacy work.

Access to the ICCR Members’ Area

ICCR’s Members’ Area Website is the primary forum for member interaction and exchange. Organized by issue areas, the site’s open-sourced platform allows members to initiate projects, share information, participate in investor actions and collectively advance their corporate engagement strategies. 

The Corporate Examiner, The Proxy Resolutions and Voting Guide, and ICCR's Proprietary Reports

Members receive quarterly editions of ICCR’s Corporate Examiner magazine covering member initiatives and corporate progress on environmental, social and governance fronts; and the annual ICCR Proxy Resolutions and Voting Guide which details member-sponsored shareholder resolutions and previews each year’s corporate shareholder season trends.

Participation in Tri-Annual ICCR Member Meetings

The full membership convenes for five days of meetings three times annually for updates on corporate engagements, strategy setting and educational programs that support member CSR initiatives. The fall meetings culminate in our annual Special Event bringing together thought leaders from the worlds of faith, business, academia and civil society for a thoughtful discussion of the future of our work---followed by an evening of celebration.

ICCR offers three levels of membership.  A brief description of each level follows:

This level of membership is available only to Faith-Based organizations who wish to participate fully in the work of ICCR.

Governance/Participation: Faith-based member organizations have full voting rights, are eligible for full participation on ICCR’s Governing Board and Board Committees and, as such, are responsible for strategy and policy development for the organization. Further, Faith-based members are eligible to participate in leadership teams and shape issue work.

Benefits: Faith-based members have full access to ICCR’s Shareholder Actions database including ICCR-sponsored initiatives with thousands of corporations dating back to the earliest days of our work. The database is a proprietary and comprehensive record by company of historical and pending shareholder actions. Faith-based members may be listed on ICCR's registry of SRI providers.

Fees: Faith-based members pay annually scheduled dues based on their organization’s AUMs.
