Eligibility: Membership in NACCDO is open to all NCI-designated and/or NCI-funded cancer centers, and member benefits are shared by member center development professionals.  Institutions applying for membership or renewal will be required to document current NCI funding. Foundations that exist solely to support qualifying NCI-funded institutions qualify for membership.

Membership Fee: As of July 1, 2018, the membership fee is based on the annual amount raised by the cancer center. The fee covers all development officers at that cancer center.
