Is my membership current? Take a look on your most recent membership card. You’ll see a handwritten membership expiration date. We have been experimenting with sending out member renewal reminders, which members tell us they have appreciated.
How long does my membership last? Memberships are good for one year from the date of your donation. If you donate additional gifts before the year is up, we will add these to your initial gift, but do not extend your membership year. If your gifts reach the next membership level, we’ll send your additional gifts.
What will I receive for my donation? The Tasha Tudor Society is a 100% member-supported nonprofit organization. So first and foremost, you will receive the satisfaction of supporting our mission. In addition, you will receive member thank you gifts, such as bookmarks, notecards and more depending on your gift level. Thank you gifts are subject to change from year to year.
What is monthly giving? Some donors choose to make 12 smaller, monthly contributions rather than one larger annual gift. This is a very important revenue stream for our organization as it can be counted on monthly. Monthly donors never have to remember to renew their membership. Once you sign-up, your donations will continue, month after month, until you cancel. Monthly donors also receive a 8 1/2″ x 11″ Tasha Tudor print.
How do I cancel my monthly gift? Monthly donors who mailed or called in their donation information can simply email, call or mail us a note with the instructions to cease the donations. Monthly donors who signed up using Paypal can cancel their donations at any time by logging into their Paypal account.
May I make a donation in memory of a loved one? Yes. Please enter the exact wording of your remembrance in the Donation Details/Special Instruction box when making your gift. Such as “In memory of my corgi, Dash” or “In memory of my mother who taught me to read using Tasha Tudor books.” Your exact wording will appear in the following year’s Summer issue of the Journal.
May I give a Gift Membership? Yes. Simply indicate who the membership is for and include their address in the Donation details/Special Instruction box when making your gift. We will send you a letter for tax-deduction purposes and your gift recipient will receive the thank you gifts.
Have I missed any Journals? You can see the covers of most Journals in our online store and order back issues if you’d like.
How may I visit the Society? We no longer have a physical location to visit but you can find our work here on this website, weekly posts on Facebook and/or Instagram, by signing up for email updates, at the growing network of Society Chapter events and by reading our printed Journals.
How may I visit Tasha’s homestead? Tasha’s homestead is privately owned by Tasha’s family. Tours have been postponed indefinitely.
What happened to the Tasha Tudor Museum? In March 2017, the Tasha Tudor Museum was renamed the Tasha Tudor Society in order to clarify that the organization was not located in Tasha’s homestead as was frequently thought. The Tasha Tudor Society is an apt name for an organization that continues to spread the joy and peace of Tasha Tudor’s legacy.
What are my member benefits now that the exhibit space is closed? The Tasha Tudor Society handpicks a new image for our membership thank you gifts each year. The 2023 gifts feature a gorgeous pastoral scene from Tasha’s 1980 book The Lord is My Shepherd: The Twenty-third Psalm.
I am a charter member, where can I find the permanently displayed charter member names? We are happy to thank our charter members in this online format.
I am a charter member, will I continue to receive Journals by mail or do I have to contribute annually? The Charter Members provided the support needed to get the organization off-the-ground. Thank you! In 2012, annual memberships began supporting the daily costs of operation. Please update your Charter Membership by making an annual donation to continue your Journal subscription
I saw Tasha’s dollhouse when it was displayed in Colonial Williamsburg in the 1990’s. Where is it displayed now? The dolls, furniture and household goods of Tasha’s famous dollhouse have returned to Tasha’s home. The house, barn and greenhouse that Colonial Williamsburg volunteers built for the exhibit were donated to the Tudor Family and are currently in storage. The greenhouse was part of the Tasha Tudor Museum’s Seasons of Delight: Tasha’s Love of Gardening exhibit in 2016.
