I want to get a membership for my daughter/ sister/ mother/ grandmother/ aunt/ friend/ etc. How do I buy her a membership, too? Can I get it for her as a gift so that she doesn't have to pay for it but gets the membership?

If you would like to pay for another person's membership, please send a donation of $35.00 or more to:

National Women's History Museum
Administrative Offices

We will need your name, address, and phone number or e-mail address, and the name and address of the person who should receive the gift. We will send a confirmation letter to you (the donor), thanking you - this will serve as your record for tax purposes. The person receiving the gift will receive a package detailing who gave them the gift and membership information, but it will NOT include the amount of your donation.

I am a member, but I need to update my information because my name has changed/my name is different than it appears on my certificate/my address has changed. How do I do that?

Send us your name and address, as well as the incorrect information. We will ensure that your name is corrected on the master list.

You can either email staff@nwhm.org or to send your information to:

National Women's History Museum
