Membership Fees

The annual membership fee of EUR 87,50 or $100,- covers administrative costs of meetings, information sessions with specialists, office material, publications, postage, preparations for the International Day of Families on May 15th, as designated by the United Nations, etc, as well as the production and mailing of the quarterly bulletin Families International, which is part of the service provided to the membership.


All other activities since 1985, such as the World NGO Forum, Launching the International Year of the Family 1994 (IYF), in cooperation with the UN IYF Secretariate and the Government of Malta, 9 International Seminars, several projects, as well as publications and the service of the world-wide network are funded by donors and sponsors, such as those, listed below.

Financial support has been received from the governments of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Spain, as well as from the governments of the Balearic Islands, Catalonia, and from the European Union, the United Nations Voluntary Fund for IYF and the United Nations Trust Fund on Family Activities, and also from business institutions and private donors.

Voluntary Work

Extensive voluntary work-input of individual representatives of member organisations of the Committee assure cost effectiveness.

The Vienna NGO Committee on the Family has contributed US$ 7.000 to the United Nations Trust Fund on Family Activities by producing and selling the International Year of the Family cookery book entitled “Family Favourites” which was available through UN bookstores, but is now out of print.

A Plan of Action for each year is proposed by the Board and, after discussion in a Full Committee Meeting, approved by the membership.


The Vienna NGO Committee on the Family would like to express appreciation and gratitude to all those who support its activities and endeavours in the service of families world-wide and to the then Federal Ministry for Social Affairs and Generations of the Austrian Government for its financial support in setting up the original website in 2001.
