How to join Coordinated Campaigns?
Each individual Group can decide which, if any, actions and campaign they want to take part in – according to your resources and priorities. Tibet Network always offers a variety of ways to take part – from the simple to the more developed. Groups can also choose if they would like to work behind the scenes on the development of individual campaigns or just use the plans and resources that are developed.
We also encourage Groups to take the initiative to propose campaigns that the Network can work on, and all members are encouraged to take an active role on campaign working groups no matter how much experience you have.
Are Tibetan NGOs and Tibetan Associations members of the International Tibet Network?
Most Tibetan NGOs are members of the Network and a number of representatives of Tibetan NGOs are active members of the Network’s Steering Committee.
We also have a strong list of Tibetan Associations and Communities that are active members and that have contributed to our strategic planning and coordination via Regional meetings.
What is the Membership Fee?
Tibet Network understands that the majority of our Members finances are unpredictable. We therefore have a sliding scale and ask that Members make a contribution to the Network dependent on what the Group’s annual income is. To help Groups work out an appropriate contribution we have a sliding scale ranging from as little as $25. To see the recommended contribution visit…. to please click here.
The bulk of the Network’s funding comes from grant-making trusts and foundations. However we do see contributions from Members as extremely important as it is a demonstration of commitment to the Network and shows our funders the strength of support for International Tibet Network.
