Application Fee Structure

Application Fee Structure

As of January 1, 2015, GFAS requires an application fee for new applicants based on a sliding scale of your total annual expenses for the last applicable fiscal year.  This application fee applies to any organization applying for accreditation or verification.  All amounts below are U.S. dollars. Payment will be required for consideration of application materials.

Annual and application fees help offset some of the costs of the accreditation process, including a portion of site visits, as well as other expenses related to program services for Accredited and Verified facilities (which may include workshops, webinars, GFAS staffing, and other support).

Fee structure:

Sanctuary Annual Expenses Non-Returnable Application Fee
Up to $100,000 $200
$100,000 to $250,000 $300
$250,000 to $500,000 $400
$500,000 to $1,000,000 $600
$1,000,000 to $2,000,000 $1,000
Over $2,000,000 $1,200
