How long until I receive my Passport to the Arts Membership Card?
We process Passport Cards as quickly as possible. You should receive your Passport Card in the mail within two weeks of your donation. This time period may be longer if you donated or pledged via a Workplace Campaign. We will send you a Thank You letter that serves as your receipt for your tax-deductible donation. At the bottom of the letter will be two Passport cards that can easily be punched out for your use. If you make a donation and do not receive your Passport after two weeks, please call us at (937) 222-2787.
How long is my Passport to the Arts valid?
Your Passport to the Arts membership is good for one year from the time your gift is made. It will expire one year after your donation is logged in our system. In the event you make a pledged gift via your company using payroll deduction, your pledge counts as a gift and your Passport card will be processed right away. Your expiration date will be on the front of your Passport to the Arts card. You can renew your membership with a donation of $85 or more, and you will receive an updated card.
