MHSA’s strength is rooted in the on-the-ground experience of our member agencies, and we are incredibly grateful for your dedication and partnership.

If your organization is able to support MHSA with an annual member contribution, please consider doing so by Friday, April 16, 2021. We are grateful for any support you can provide.

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, in what we know are still difficult times for many, 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 Friday, April 16, 2021:

Total Homeless Individual FY21 Budget $____________ X 0.001 = $___________
