HomeAnnouncing SBN’s Updated Membership Structure
You may have seen some exciting new changes from us recently. At SBN, we strive to meet the growing needs of local, independent, values-driven businesses throughout Greater Philadelphia. We are expanding on our commitment to building a just, green, and thriving local economy by making membership more accessible to all.

To that end, beginning November 4, 2022, we’re thrilled to announce a new membership model with flat rates for various businesses, organizations, and entities that are interested in joining our community. Annual memberships for most businesses and nonprofit organizations will be a flat rate of $275. Businesses or nonprofit organizations within the GSI industry will have a flat rate of $350 for annual membership to support the exclusive content and tailored programming they receive. Newly formed businesses can access our membership for $100 per year. Please see the chart below with details on rates and benefits.



We thank you for your continued support and engagement with SBN, especially over the last year. What we hear from you continues to inform our programming and events, advocacy, and, most importantly, providing you with businesses and organizations throughout our region with benefits and opportunities to help you grow. In transitioning to a flat-rate membership structure, we will offer more exclusive membership benefits, new programs and events, and other features throughout the year. 

We understand you likely have questions about this transition and how it relates to your membership with us. Please read our FAQ, which will hopefully help answer any questions you may have. If you still have questions or would like to share your ideas and suggestions, feel free to reach out to us directly at info@sbnphiladelphia.org.

We look forward to continuing our important work – with you and for you – of building a local economy centered on local business, equity, and climate resilience.
