All watershed councils in Oregon are eligible (and encouraged) to become members of the Network, and receive membership benefits.   

How does it work? NOWC offers three membership annual dues tier levels, based on member organizations’ self-reported total annual revenue from the most recently completed fiscal year.  This includes all revenue sources (grants, contracts, unrestricted income, etc.)  For councils that are 501(c)3’s, this information can be found on Part 1, Line 12 of the 990 form.  Fiscally sponsored councils will need to estimate their revenue.  
                                                Total Annual Revenue              NOWC Annual Membership Due
                                                $0-$250,000                              $200 per year
                                                $250,000-$750,000                   $500 per year 
                                                $750,000+                                 $800 per year

Membership dues cover a fiscal year (July-June) and will be billed in November.  NOWC will send an invoice to the email on record — payment can be sent by check to:
