Social justice, personal growth, helping the poor and downtrodden—all of these are valid examples for reasons why most of us join a nonprofit organization. Whatever the reason for joining an organization, there must surely be a certain organizational vision that has drawn a person to apply for membership in an organization in the first place. Similarly, when such vision or reason ceases to become relevant to the member, then that is the time that the member will consider quitting or leaving an organization.

Things to Remember in Making a Membership Resignation Letter
- Write in detail the reasons for your resignation. Since most organizations are either nonprofit (social work) or created for the mutual benefits of all its members, then it follows that one member’s resignation might affect the organization’s operations as a whole. That is why, when writing you resignation letter, you need to be able to give a valid excuse for such resignation. For reference, you can check the abovementioned examples of reasons for membership resignation.
- Remember to give a specific time and date when your resignation will take effect. Of course, you need to be sensitive and considerate of your organization’s needs and goals, you do not leave immediately. You need to give them enough time to replace you with another recruited member or to adjust their organizational plans and projects in order for the tasks that were initially assigned to you to be delegated to the rest of the organization’s members.
- Lastly, remember to be polite and observe a formal tone in your resignation letter. Address your organization’s leader formally by using titles such as “Ms.,” “Mrs.,” and “Mr.”
