VP Members are people who share our belief that data and creative communication have a role in the movement for Palestinian human rights, especially in highlighting the root causes of injustice. Members make a recurring monthly or annual contribution of US $1 or more to VP, vouching a commitment to the work and contributing to scaling its impact.
We started this Membership to be intentional in creating opportunities for you to be part of VP’s work and community. Your engagement is key to our impact. There are multiple ways to get involved, such as downloading visuals to share with your community or volunteering with us.
Because our Membership is geographically diverse, we primarily communicate with Members by email newsletters. We also make an effort to host gatherings in cities with 20 or more Members.
The Membership community is based on a steady partnership, so only recurring contributors are considered Members. A Member’s ongoing presence frees us to focus on what matters most: the work, the community, and the impact. That said, if you are not ready to become a Member, we gratefully welcome your one-time contribution outside of the Membership program.
- 01. What are the benefits of Membership?
Our commitment to Members is to nurture your sense of belonging to the VP community, even as we continue to focus on creating open, impactful tools for Palestinian human rights. In addition to our regular email updates, we are initiating local gatherings of Members in cities like New York, Amman, Dubai, and Toronto. You’ll also have access to our mid year and end year internal reports.
- 01. What will you do with Membership funds?
- 02. What steps do you take to ensure transparency?
Your Membership contribution is directed to VP’s Human Rights Data Visualization program, through which we release data-driven content twice per month. Our goal is for this program to eventually be 100% secured by Members.
Our accounts are audited yearly. We also produce cyclical reports that are shared with our Members.
