Renewals for TU Members
Existing members should be renewing their membership to TU by any of the following methods:
- Membership Renewal Statement that is mailed to them,
- Calling Customer Service at 1-800-834-2419 to renew over the phone, or
- Renew on line at https://gifts.tu.org/member/renew?ms=MWL-WFO-WEBREN-S?&_ga=2.87665690.326900582.1641665291-56234041.1641665291.
Changing chapter affiliation
National TU has had a process where members who renew are cross-checked for their ZIP codes. If the ZIP falls in another chapter's jurisdiction, the member has been reassigned automatically to that other chapter. When you receive your membership card after renewing, please verify to what chapter you are assigned. Call the membership number above to have your affiliation changed to any chapter at any time. Also ask that your membership record be flagged so that no changes in chapter affiliation will happen in the future without your specific request.
