Gift Memberships

Give the gift of inspiration

Purchase a gift membership at any level

Give the gift of inspiration!

Put the Earth in the hands of someone special with the gift of membership to Chabot. When you give the gift of membership, you give a full year of giant-screen shows, of interactive exhibits, of inspiration and curiosity.

Going Green

What better way to be 'green' than with a gift that keeps on giving? (And will never end up in a landfill!) Membership gives a full year of memorable experiences that can last a lifetime, not just until the next yard sale.

A gift that does more

Your purchase of a gift membership not only benefits the person you give it to, but also supports our Center and our educational programs. Plus it’s tax-deductible!

How to buy

Gift memberships are available online or at the Center.

  • At the Center: Go to the Visitor Services desk and let them know you’d like to purchase a gift membership. 
  • Online: Your gift of membership will be sent directly to the person you choose, and you can add a special message along with it. How?
  1. Visit the Become a Member section of our website and select the level of membership you’d like to give.
  2. Enter your own information on the first page ("gift from"). On the next page, you’ll be asked to provide gift recipient’s information ("gift for").
  3. From there you can add in a special message and complete your purchase. We’ll send membership cards along with your message directly to the person receiving the gift. It typically takes between 1-3 weeks for the cards to reach the recipient.
