Membership Benefits

We invite you to help sustain the Museum by becoming a member. Annual memberships are on the basis of the calendar year: January 1 - December 31. All members receive a Certificate of Recognition as a Builder of The National Museum of Language, an NML Membership Card, a newsletter updating them on the Museum's progress, and the Annual Report, which lists members and donors. A new benefit is access to the Transparent Language. Members can use research-based online language learning software that would otherwise cost $29 a month. See details here.

We rely on membership dues as the principal means of financial support, so recruitment of new members is of tremendous importance to us. So sound out your friends and colleagues, recruit your relatives, give memberships as a birthday or holiday gift. At the holiday time, you can now give your favorite teacher an Educator membership. We welcome also your tax-deductible donations as an additional means of supporting the Museum. Use a button below to pay online with secure PayPal payments (you do not have to have a PayPal account to pay with a credit card online).
