Membership to PYP Seattle is by invitation only. For 2024, we are keeping our membership at 65 women so we anticipate only having a few spots open for new members.  Priority will be given to LGBTQIA+ applicants, followed by women from historically underrepresented communities.

New Member Application

If a current member has invited you to join, please fill out the 2024 PYP Seattle New Member Application by April 30, 2024.

Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received.  We will reach out to all applicants in early May to let them know whether their application has been approved for membership.  Approved applicants will be asked to complete the additional registration steps listed below by May 17, 2024. 

New Member Registration (for Approved Applicants Only)

1)    Make your donation/dues payment.  The minimum annual dues in the amount of $1,000 per member is required; however, members may choose to donate more than $1,000 in annual dues – donating generously to our local community through PYP ensures that your dollars will go to help local non-profits that have been vetted, researched, and collectively approved by our membership.  In addition, we require members to contribute a donation of $250 annually to PYP Seattle to help cover our expenses.  Please combine your dues amount and the $250 donation to cover our expenses into one donation amount when making your payment (so the minimum donation amount is $1,250).  Note that donation amounts will be kept anonymous and each member is only given one vote, regardless of the dues they pay.  All donation amounts are tax deductible (EIN 84-3341787).
