A gift that gives twice

The Mint Museum has partnered with the Charlotte nonprofit Thompson Child & Family Focus for a “Gift of Membership” campaign that will provide gift memberships to families who may not otherwise have had the opportunity to participate in the Mint’s educational programming.

For every gift membership purchased by a member of the public before December 31, the Mint will give another membership to a family identified by Thompson Child & Family Focus. Memberships cost $60 for individuals; $100 for families; $45 for students and teachers; and $80 for two adults. Memberships include unlimited free admission to both museum locations year-round; invitations to special members-only events; free or discounted admission to educational programs and classes; and reciprocal privileges at designated Southeastern museums.

The museum packages gift membership cards in wrapped gift boxes and mails them to the intended recipients. To ensure delivery in time for the holidays, givers are urged to purchase them by Dec. 14 online at
