Gift membership

Looking for a wild and unique gift? Give the gift of membership!

There are three easy ways to give the gift of membership: Buy an electronic gift card online, renew an existing membership online or over the phone, or have a gift card mailed to you! Read on for your gift giving options.

Electronic gift card for membership (Instant Gift!)

When you purchase an electronic gift of membership card, you (as the gift giver) OR the recipient will receive an e-mail confirmation with your special message along with a PDF gift card attached that the recipient will redeem at their convenience to begin their membership. The PDF will contain a gift card number that can be redeemed online or over the phone (503.505.5493). You will not need any of the recipient's information to purchase a gift membership. The membership doesn't start until the recipient decides to redeem the gift card, which means they won't lose any time on their membership! The membership is valid for a full year from the redemption date.

Gift memberships in the form of renewals

Gift renewals will add a full year from the current member's expiration date (i.e. if the current member's expiration date for their membership is 3/31/2020, the gift membership will add 365 days and expire on 3/30/2021). You will need the current member's information to complete the transaction. Membership addresses need to match the members' photo ID. Please do not choose this option if you wish the membership to be a surprise. Consider a physical gift card if you would like to present the membership as a gift.
