Arise thrives on its membership

When you give to Alabama Arise, you join as a member. We’re grateful for your giving: A significant percentage of our financial support comes from people like you. And we’re especially grateful for your membership.

Our members are important to us because, as we often say, people are our power. This month, members are coming together at our Annual Meeting to vote on our legislative priorities, approve our budget and elect our board of directors.

Because of this, we like to report regularly on who our members are. We have 1,412 members across the state in nearly three-quarters of Alabama counties. Through our membership survey (which you can fill out at, we know our membership is 22% people with low incomes, 5% people under age 30 and 23% people of color.

Part of this membership is a dedicated group who sustain our work year-round. These are our recurring donors. More than 200 people give monthly to Arise, because they know it’s important for us to have the flexibility needed to focus year-round on the priorities our members choose.
