CIFF47: PSQ March 22 – April 1, 2023 | Streams April 2 – April 9, 2023

How do I purchase a gift membership?

If you would like to purchase a CIFF gift membership, give us a call at 216.623.3456 and we will place the order for you! If the gift membership recipient is not a current or lapsed CIFF Member, you can do so on our Membership page.

Please Note: It is important to provide the member's full and accurate contact information. If you do not have their full contact information, we suggest purchasing a gift certificate instead. It is also important to note if the gift membership is a renewal of a current or lapsed CIFF membership, unless you have the member's current login and password, we suggest purchasing a gift certificate instead; otherwise there is a chance the recipient will have duplicate memberships in our system.

  • CIFF members are uniquely identified in the CIFF system by their email address. Members log into their CIFF membership account with the email address associated to their memebrship in order to gain access to members-only areas of the CIFF website and members-only discounts on CIFF tickets, voucher packs, special events, and merchandise.
  • CIFF members are also frequently contacted via additional mailings and emails at the mailing address and email address associated with their membership.
  • Streaming access to CIFF46 Streams is delivered via email to the member's email on file, so it is paramount to have the correct email address for our members.
  • CIFF members are frequently contacted via mailings and emails and are uniquely identified with and gain access to membership benefits through their CIFF website login (their email address) and password (of your or their choosing).
