There are two ways to join or renew membership, online and by mail.

Join or renew online

You can join or renew securely online by making your annual tax-deductible contribution to the EPIC Gift Fund. You will NOT see a separate membership option -- your contribution to the Gift Fund will be your membership donation.

You may also wish to make an additional donation to EPIC’s Endowment, honoring Prof. Robert Belknap, to support the growth of our programs and facilities. Make an Endowment Contribution by selecting "Add Another Gift" and then select the EPIC Endowment Fund from the dropdown list.  You have the option to make a gift in honor or in memory of someone.

Click here to make your annual contribution to the EPIC Gifts Fund and your Endowment contribution by credit card. 

Please note – online payment is the preferred method of payment – especially during COVID!
