Your Membership Matters

Stepping Stones relies on the generosity of family and friends, like you, to help sustain operations and grow. We are a non-profit organization that earns almost half its revenue through sponsorship, grants, gifts, and membership. Membership is a support that helps power the engaging learning experiences that our exhibits and programming deliver — your membership is partially tax-deductible and fully appreciated.

The longer you are a member, the more impact you have on the museum and the programs you love. With your membership support, our mission will continue to grow. Thank you for being a part of our family.

Digital Membership Cards

We launched a digital membership card last year, which makes replacing and updating your cards quick and easy while also reducing our carbon footprint. Check your phone’s digital wallet in case you already added it and be sure to let us know if you do not see your Stepping Stones membership card there.

If you do not see the expiration date on your digital card update on November 20, don’t worry! We are updating many members’ expiration dates, so the system may need a few days to process changes. Rest assured that if you were a member at the time of our closure, you are a member now.

As always, our Membership team is standing by to help. Feel free to email us at membership@steppingstonesmuseum.org or call us at 203 899 0606 ext. 264.
