Affiliate: Persons who wish to have a more formal relationship with Crescent Project than an Advocate and need an official platform (email address, business cards, and ministry account) for ministry. They are required to complete the application and assessment process and are expected to raise a minimum in $450 financial support to cover their expenses. This $450 can be fundraised or donated from personal funds. If the person can lead a fundraising dinner in their area, the $450 will be waived. They have job descriptions and lines of supervision. They can serve as field staff, project/event staff, and have full access to essential services.

Advocate: This category is primarily for the "tribe" or "gathering" - people who want to be connected to Crescent Project through our various trainings and want to "belong" to the movement but do not have a formal employment relationship with Crescent Project. Advocate members will be asked to complete an application form and attend Sahara Challenge at least once. They are also required to attend the National Conference. Since an Advocate is not technically on staff, they are not required to attend the Staff Retreat, but it is encouraged. Advocates will sign a "Memo of Understanding" that is drafted by Crescent Project. This memo will outline their areas of responsibilities and supervision.
