Join our civic-minded community!

Civic Hall is a non-profit organization that fosters collaboration and builds community to advance technology for the public good. We bring together social and civic entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, government staff, community organizers, policy-makers, philanthropists, software developers, data scientists, journalists and academics to share knowledge, build tools, and solve pressing public interest problems. Founded in February 2015, Civic Hall has rapidly grown into a thriving and diverse community with over 1,000 members and 100 member organizations including many government agencies, tech companies, media leaders, civic tech leaders, academic institutions, foundations, and community-based organizations.

“I’ve been able to meet others doing great work in my areas of focus, which has led to collaborations. It’s also been a source for generating business.”

Eboné Bishop, Cultural Business Consultant, Part-Time member

“A cool space, great location, inspiring (& friendly) people and informative events for a $100 a month? Incredible value.”

Alex Evis, Social Entrepreneur, Part-Time member

“A Civic Hall membership is valuable to our small team because when we work together we are more productive and inspired. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to have that face-to-face connection.”

Katie Simpson, Head of Operations, Women’s March Global, Part-Time member

“The enormous support I have found in the people at Civic Hall is second only to the varied and informative perspectives that make each individual amazing.”

Austin Lee, Founder of Bettercorp, Network member

You can now apply for the Sliding Scale!

In an effort to remain as inclusive a community as possible, we are adding a new sliding scale membership option based on your income level, applicable to all membership plans. If you’re interested in applying for a sliding scale rate, please click below to learn more.


1. Review the Sliding Scale Worksheet to determine your Net Monthly Household Income (NMHI). This worksheet is solely for your use, and we will never request to review it.
2. Once you have determined your NMHI, refer to the Sliding Scale Chart to determine the appropriate sliding scale rate for the plan of your interest. (Please note that for those willing and able, it is an option to pay more for membership rates in order to support those less able to pay.)
3. Once you have your sliding scale rate, please email us at for next steps.

We welcome your feedback
