Membership Policies

 

Membership Levels and Benefits

Is there an individual membership?

Individuals are covered by a Dual membership. A Dual membership with just one name on it allows that person to bring in a guest every time he or she visits.

Can I change the names on my membership?

The names listed on the a membership may be changed if there has been a change in the family's circumstances, such as a death, move, or a change in relationship status. Name change requests, inlducing reason for the change, must be sent in writing to imnh@isu.edu or mailed to the Idaho Museum of Natural History, 921 S 8th Ave, Stop 8096, Pocatello, ID 83209. Please submit name change requests two weeks before your next Museum visit for the best possible customer service when you attend the Museum.

Can I begin using my membership immediately?

Yes! Your membership begins the day you join.

Will I get a renewal notice when my membership expires?

Yes. You will receive your first renewal notice in the mail about six weeks before your membership expires.

Can I purchase a membership as a gift for someone else?

Yes. You may purchase one here.

Can my membership be refunded?

No. Memberships are not refundable in whole or in part.

Can my membership be revoked?

Memberships are revocable licenses. The museum reserves the right to refuse or revoke membership and/or deny admission without refund for non-compliance with applicable rules and terms or for inappropriate conduct. Purchase of an annual membership does not entitle the purchaser to renewal in a subsequent year.

Membership levels, benefits, and prices are subject to change without notice.

 

Membership Tax Deductibility

Is my Dual or Family membership tax deductible?

As a general rule, a membership payment is only deductible to the extent it exceeds the value of the benefits provided in exchange. We estimate that the membership benefits provided at the Dual and Household membership levels exceed the cost of the membership. As a result, Dual and Household membership purchases are not deductible for federal income tax purposes.

Is my Supporting Membership tax deductible?

The amount of your Supporting Membership that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the amount of your gift, less the value of certain membership benefits you are entitled to receive. The museum estimates the value of those benefits as follows:

The full amount of your contribution is tax-deductible if you have notified the development office in writing that you do not wish to receive member benefits.

 

Membership Cards

How long does it take to receive my member cards?

It takes about two weeks after the membership office receives a completed membership application to receive a set of member cards. If you haven’t received your cards within this time period, please email imnh@isu.edu or call 208-282-3168.

What if I lose my member cards?

Email imnh@isu.edu or call the 208-282-3168 and let us know that you need new cards. We will send a new set to you the next time cards are printed (every week). There is no fee for replacement cards.

 

Member Guests

Can a member bring guests?
Of course! Guests of members pay regular admission prices.

Can I bring a guest to member events?

Generally, member events are for members only. If an event notice or invitation specifically mentions that guests are permitted, members are welcome to bring them along. Dual members with only one person named on the membership may bring one guest to member events.

 

What if I have other questions?

Send an email to imnh@isu.edu or call 208-282-3168. The Museum office is open Tuesday - Friday.
