eXtension.orgThe eXtension Foundation is a member-based nonprofit established to enhance learning environments through new technologies and innovations while building on Cooperative Extension’s faculty and staff, content, and leadership resources. eXtension focuses on innovations and professional development for Cooperative Extension and will continue to look for emerging opportunities.

On November 17, 2014 the Cooperative Extension Section voted to move to a membership, fee-driven model effective January 1, 2015. The eXtension Foundation member-based nonprofit was established to advance exceptional technology enhanced learning environments while building on Cooperative Extension’s faculty and staff, content, and leadership resources.

Prior to the new model the eXtension assessment was calculated at 0.8% of each Section member institution’s receipt of formula funds from the previous year in the Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) and 1890 Extension (Section 1444) lines. Premium membership fees for 2015 are based on 75% of the 2014 assessment; basic membership fees are based on 60% of the 2014 assessment. "The 2016 calendar year membership for Premium Members is calculated at 0.6% of each Section Member Institution’s receipt of formula funds from the previous year enacted in the Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) and 1890 Extension (Section 1444) lines. The 2016 calendar year membership for Basic Members is calculated at 0.48% of each Section Member Institution’s receipt of formula funds from the previous year enacted in the Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) and 1890 Extension (Section 1444) lines. If an institution becomes a Member after the start of the calendar year, whether a Premium or Basic Member, the Membership Fee due will be prorated from the month the institution becomes a Member to the end of the calendar year." (2015 Membership Handbook)
