Member contributions can be made via mail, online or over the phone. The annual member contribution formula is based on 0.1% (one tenth of one percent) of each member organization’s total homeless individual budget, including state, federal, semi-public, and private funding, but not including in-kind dollars. The minimum annual contribution is $500; the maximum annual contribution is $5,000 – however, whatever you can give would be helpful. We also understand that the formula above may not work well for some agencies, particularly those who are not service providers; again, we welcome your support as you are able to contribute. The inability of an organization to contribute is not an impediment to MHSA membership.

Please complete the following formula to calculate your organization’s contribution and send the contribution to MHSA by Tuesday, April 25, 2023:

Total Homeless Individual FY23 Budget $____________ X 0.001 = $___________



Please make checks payable to the Massachusetts Housing & Shelter Alliance and mail to PO Box 8638, Boston, MA 02114.

To pay by credit card over the phone, please email with your name and phone number, and we will reach out to you.


If you have any questions, please contact Caitlin Golden at or 617-367-6447 x28. Thank you again for your support!
