Frequently Asked Questions
1. What will my expiration date be and how will I be notified?
A WAC Tacoma membership (individual and family) is good for 12 months from date of joining or renewing. 14 days before your membership expires, you will be asked to renew by email. Memberships are not automatically renewed.
2. Is my membership tax deductible?
WAC Tacoma is a 501(c)(3) organization. Because the benefits of membership are "intangible", we believe the membership fee is a tax deductible contribution. However, it is always best to consult your tax advisor to determine the deductibility of membership.
3. Do my spouse and I have to buy two separate memberships?
No. A Family Membership is for you and one other. When you purchase this membership in your name, you are the core member and you have the flexibility of designating another person to share your membership; this person can be a spouse, family member, or friend.
