The Fine Print
Year-long memberships begin on the day you donate. So, if you donated on September 15, 2012, for example, your membership period is 9/15/12 - 9/14/13.
If you make an additional gift within the first three months of your membership period, you will be upgraded. So, if you gave $50 to begin your membership and then another $50 six weeks later (thanks!), you will go from being a Word-level member to being a Sentence-level member. Additional gifts received after the first three months of membership will extend your membership renewal date.
Membership benefits can be shared by spouses and partners as long as we have both individuals' contact information in our database. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Other Ways to Get a Membership
We offer a discounted membership ($25-$49) for full-time students, full-time teachers and seniors aged 65+, which includes all the benefits of the $50 – $99 level.
