Membership Activation

Did you know? Once your membership is active, you are welcome to use it as often as you’d like throughout the year, and as a member you can always check in with a photo ID, even if you don’t have your membership card with you.
 

Flexibility and Convenience

Our memberships are flexible: if you have a Dual level or higher and your co-owner is unable to visit, you may bring a guest with you in his or her place. For Family Memberships and higher, we accept up to four children, so if you only have two children in your household, each may bring a friend with them. Additionally, the co-owners of a membership are not required to reside in the same address; however, only one address per membership account will receive our mailings. 


Tax Deductibility

Phipps memberships are 100% tax-deductible with exceptions at the Supporting, Sustaining, Benefactor and Henry Phipps Associate levels as noted below.

* Additional children beyond the four included may be added to this membership for $5 per child. Please call the membership team at 412/315-0656 or stop by the Welcome Center to add additional children to your membership.
