The first year of our membership program was more than we could have imagined and the support poured out more than we expected, which did backlog us on one year membership gifts being sent out. We now have a good plan for Year 2! If you are a Year 1 member who has not yet received your perks, please fill out this form here.

All Year 1 members will receive their gifts at their one year mark once they have filled out the form to confirm their address. As we go into Year 2, membership perks associated with contributions will be received according to each threshold for recurring and one time donors. One-time donors should expect to receive gifts in 6-8 weeks from their contribution. Monthly sustaining gifts will be sent in 2-4 weeks after reaching the ten-month mark of your year 2 membership. For all perks, be sure to check your email as you will receive a form to confirm your address before perks are processed.
