Join our civic-minded community!

Civic Hall is the nation’s leading center for learning and collaboration focused on advancing civic technology and problem-solving for the public good. We serve as a dynamic and uniquely inclusive exchange for ideas, tools, learning, relationships, and ventures—both old and new—that can bring about a more just society. 

We provide both today’s and tomorrow’s civic activists with the means to reinvent civic engagement in the 21st century. Civic activists are the people, teams, organizations, and networks—at any and every level within an organization, community, company, city or country—who are transforming how society responds to urgent social problems. We work to give these people the skills, relationships, and tech they need to profoundly improve the institutions and systems that shape how society works and who has power. 

Through our membership, we hope to help build, connect and diversify this community, and create new institutional infrastructure for generating greater value, equity, and justice in society.

“I’ve been able to meet others doing great work in my areas of focus, which has led to collaborations. It’s also been a source for generating business.”

Eboné Bishop, Cultural Business Consultant, Part-Time member

“A cool space, great location, inspiring (& friendly) people and informative events for a $100 a month? Incredible value.”

Alex Evis, Social Entrepreneur, Part-Time member

“A Civic Hall membership is valuable to our small team because when we work together we are more productive and inspired. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to have that face-to-face connection.”

Katie Simpson, Head of Operations, Women’s March Global, Part-Time member

“The enormous support I have found in the people at Civic Hall is second only to the varied and informative perspectives that make each individual amazing.”

You can now apply for the Sliding Scale!

In an effort to remain as inclusive a community as possible, we are adding a new sliding scale membership option based on your income level, applicable to all membership plans. If you’re interested in applying for a sliding scale rate, please click below to learn more.


1. Review the Sliding Scale Worksheet to determine your Net Monthly Household Income (NMHI). This worksheet is solely for your use, and we will never request to review it.
2. Once you have determined your NMHI, refer to the Sliding Scale Chart to determine the appropriate sliding scale rate for the plan of your interest. (Please note that for those willing and able, it is an option to pay more for membership rates in order to support those less able to pay.)
3. Once you have your sliding scale rate, please email us at for next steps.

We welcome your feedback

If none of these packages sound right for you but you still want to join the community, contact us. We want to hear from you.
