SIGA is an independent, neutral, not-for-profit, membership-based international organisation. We are not driven by any political motivation or commercial interests. Our mission is to usher sport into a new era by promoting, supporting and rating the implementation of a set of universally accepted standards on good governance, financial integrity, sports betting integrity and youth protection, across the whole sporting industry.
As set out in the SIGA Statutes, the funding of our coalition is comprised of several income sources. One of these income sources are the membership fees. All Members contribute to SIGA’s funding in accordance with their own means.
However, at SIGA, membership is about much more than just money. Members offer invaluable insight and expertise in a variety of areas, which, when combined together, form an effective coalition. The SIGA community works as a Team, and no one member is more valuable than another. Because of this, SIGA believes that it is important to offer equal rights and benefits to all members.
SIGA has divided annual membership fees into progressive bands. Members are encouraged to select the band that reflects their financial capacity. This way, SIGA ensures Members benefit from the democracy of equal rights, whilst ensuring a proportionate, equitable and affordable contribution system and a guarantee that membership is financially accessible to all organisations.
The membership fees were unanimously approved by SIGA’s supreme body, the General Assembly, on 31 January 2017, 27 July 2017 and 31 January 2018.
This system is essential in ensuring SIGA’s financial sustainability, long-term development, independence and neutrality. SIGA members are the backbone of our success, and we are hugely grateful for their ongoing support.
Today, we say THANK YOU to those Members who, in addition to contributing in kind, also contributed financially to SIGA in 2017.
