NEW Digital Membership Card

When you join or renew your membership to Grand Canyon Conservancy, you can elect to receive a digital membership card. By going digital, you help reduce our environmental impact cutting down on printing and postage fees. The new digital membership card saves directly to your mobile phone, so you always have it available and easily accessible. 

Your member benefits stay the same, and you can still share your digital membership card with your spouse or partner. When it comes time to renew, if your membership card is installed on your phone, it will automatically update to be current for the following year. This helps make it easier and more efficient to renew your support, protecting Grand Canyon National Park for generations to come.

If you prefer a traditional paper membership card instead of a digital one, you can contact us to elect this option. For questions about your membership, digital membership card, or selecting a paper membership card, please email us at
