Membership is open to anyone with a commitment to supporting the grandmothers in Africa by supporting the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF).
Members do not need to be grandmothers; grand “others” are equally welcome.
A Nango Grannies (NGG) member is anyone who fills out a membership form for the current calendar year.
Membership is for the calendar year January – December. Members can join any time during the calendar year.
A voluntary membership fee of $20 is payable at the beginning of each calendar year. This fee provides seed money for the NGG for such expenses such as advertising or costs associated with an event. This membership fee is separate from monies raised for donation to the SLF. All monies raised as donations to the SLF go to the SLF and are not retained by NGG.

From time-to-time e-mails will be sent out concerning the above. If you do not wish to receive these e-mails, please indicate this on your membership form or contact one of the membership committee members.
All NGG members are welcome to be core members. A core member is anyone who:
New members will be welcomed with introductory material explaining the SLF and the NGG, as well as a contact person for questions and information.
A welcome social will be held at least yearly to help new members learn about the organization and get to know other members.
Generally speaking, most major NGG events take place from September to June, with July and August off. Often, however, members will hold private events such as birthday parties or garage sales in support of the SLF.
