Two Great Locations, One Organization

In July 2020, we made the exciting transition to move our membership program digital! Using the online platform Cuseum, members will have digital access to this user-friendly membership program. Member information, updates, events and more will soon be in one place and at the tips of your fingers. For more information, please visit the Cuseum website.

What is the digital membership program?
The Matthaei-Nichols digital membership program stores all of your membership information in one place on your iPhone or Android phone’s wallet app- no need for an additional app download. This includes your name and names of anyone else on your account, membership number, level, expiration date, explanation of benefits, and contact info if you have questions.
Why digital membership?
Convenience! You’ll never have to remember to bring your membership card, and the card will automatically pop-up when you’re near Matthaei-Nichols. With no paper card or envelope to send, the digital membership is also environmentally friendly. You will also receive a renewal reminder when your membership is about to expire.
How do I add the membership card to my iPhone?
Access the email from your smartphone and click the “Download” button, then click “Add to Wallet” and “Add.” The card will automatically go to your iPhone’s Apple Wallet. It can be accessed in Wallet at any time.
How do I add the membership card to my Android phone?
Android users need to download Wallet Passes from Google Play. After you have the app, access the email from your smartphone and click “Download” in the membership email, and the card will automatically go to your Wallet Passes app, where it can be accessed at any time.
Where can I use the digital card?
Just like the paper card, you can use your digital membership card to receive discounts at Matthaei-Nichols plants sales, entrance to special member events, and special pricing or free admission to botanical gardens and museums across the U.S. See back of your digital card for explanation of participating garden/museum benefits.
I didn’t receive my digital membership card in my email, how do I get one?
The original roll-out for existing members had digital membership cards emailed out on 7/2/2020. If you are a new member since then, your digital membership card typically comes to your email within 7-10 business days. If you, or a qualifying member in your household, did not receive your card, please email us at mbgna-membership@umich.edu. Please be ready to provide your membership ID number, full name of members, and email address so we are able to look into the issue further. 
I don’t have a smartphone. Can I still get a printed membership card?
Due to current COVID19 restrictions we are unable to provide printed membership cards at this time, but will easily provide a print-at-home PDF card for you to use during this time. We understand not everyone has access to a printer, but please email us at mbgna-membership@umich.edu to further discuss options.
My membership information is incorrect, who do I contact to get it fixed?
Please email mbgna-membership@umich.edu and provide the full name(s) of members, membership ID number, and email address registered to the membership.
My family member is on this membership account also, how can she/he receive the card?
Navigate to the back of the card (click the small “i” on the front) and use the “Share Pass” button to send the card to your secondary member. For iPhone users, you will find the share icon at the top right of the Digital Card. However, if your family member would like a card in their name, we will simply need their email address added to our records to provide this. Please email mbgna-membership@umich.edu to update us.
I downloaded my card but I can’t find it.
If you have an iPhone, the card will automatically download to Apple Wallet. Check the app for your new card (scroll through any cards that are already there–it may be hiding!). If you have an Android, you’ll need to download Wallet Passes from the Play Store prior to downloading the card.
Still have questions after reading the above or need further troubleshooting?
