Membership & Contributions
- How do I receive my 10% Member discount? I don’t see it on my invoice... Your discount will be applied once your membership has been verified. You will not see your discount reflected on your online invoice. It will appear on your sales receipt when your order is delivered. Type in your membership account number and expiration date under "special instructions" when prompted on the order form.
- What if I don’t know my Membership number or expiration date? Don’t worry, we can look that up for you at the time we receive your order. Just let us know that you think you are a member in the comments section of the order form. Or you can call us at our toll free number (888.769.5559) during business hours and we can look it up for you.
- I forgot to enter my Membership number on my order. How do I still get my discount? Email your order number and Membership number to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will apply it once Membership has been confirmed. Or you can call us on our toll free number: 888.769-5559.
- Can I get my Member discount with my first order? Yes. If you purchase a membership along with your merchandise order, you will receive your discount. Again, it will not be reflected on your online invoice, but it will be on your final sales receipt.
- What are other ways that I can support the Japanese American National Museum? In addition to membership, you can also support the mission and programs of the National Museum by making a donation or honoring a child with a Children’s Courtyard inscription, both of which can be made online.
