To give someone who is not currently an IHS member a gift membership, without logging in to your own account, follow the links to join the IHS and enter the gift membership recipient's contact information in the registration form. Be sure to pass along to the recipient the username and password you select at the time you create the membership account. When you reach the Paypal payment processing page, enter the giver's payment information. When the transaction is completed by PayPal, a welcome email is sent to the address entered on the registration form giving the member's username and login instructions. The password is not included in this email.
To renew membership as a gift to a current IHS member, make sure you know the name and address of the member as they are in our records, then complete this form to make the gift of a membership renewal. Do not use that form for new memberships. To create a new membership, go to this form.
