Membership FAQs

 

How do I purchase a membership?

You can purchase a membership online, call us at (509) 888-6240, or come into the museum. Click here to learn about all of our membership levels and benefits.

 

How many membership cards will I receive?

You will only receive a membership card if you purchase one of our premium membership levels that provides reciprocal membership to other institutions. It is standard to send one per household, so please contact us if you would like more than one. A membership card is not needed for our general memberships. You can come and visit us anytime without one!


How can I get replacement membership cards?

You can stop by the museum during normal business hours (Tuesday – Saturday, 9am to 4pm) or contact our Membership Coordinator to have another membership card issued. You can reach Jillian Rice at (509) 888-6262 or jrice@wvmcc.org.

 

If I forget to bring my membership card, can I still visit the Museum for free?

Absolutely! Your WVMCC membership card is only needed to gain access to other reciprocal institutions. You will not need your card to visit us, receive discounts or to attend members-only events.

 

When will I receive my membership cards?

Your membership will be processed and a packet of information will be sent to you within the week. If you are taking a trip and would like a membership card sooner than that, please feel free to contact our Membership Coordinator Jillian Rice at (509) 888-6262 or jrice@wvmcc.org.

 

Can I use my Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center membership at other museums?

Yes! If you have one of our Premium level memberships (see all levels here) you will receive reciprocal benefits to almost 1,500 different institutions within the North American Reciprocal Museum Association (NARM) and the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC). Prices for Premium level memberships include the entire household (2 adults and all children or up to 5 grandchildren under 18).

 

Is my membership tax-deductible?

The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. A portion of our Premium Membership dues may be tax deductible. Please feel free to contact us for specific tax deductibility amounts.

 

Is my membership eligible for gift matching?

Most matching gift programs only match the tax-deductible amount of your donation. If your membership level is not tax deductible, your membership dues are not eligible for gift matching.

 

Can I purchase a membership through a donor-advised fund or family foundation?

No. If you would like to give through a donor-advised fund or family foundation, the funds must be a full donation (i.e. no benefits received) to The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center. Please purchase your membership through a personal account to ensure that you receive all of the benefits that we have to offer.

 

May I give a gift membership to a friend or family member?

Absolutely! A Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center membership is a gift that lasts all year long. Please follow the steps to purchase a new membership, select the “gift” button and enter the gift recipient’s information when prompted. Gift memberships may also be purchased at the Museum or by calling our office at (509) 888-6240.
