What is a sustainer?
A sustainer, or a sustaining member, is someone who gives an auto-renewing monthly donation to WHYY. Sustainers choose the amount per month that they would like to give, and that donation is ongoing each month until you decide to change it or cancel it.
A sustaining membership, or sustaining gift, is a membership that makes gifts to WHYY on a monthly basis. You choose the amount that you would like to give each month, and your sustaining membership will auto-renew at the end of a 12-month period. You can increase, decrease or stop your gift at any time by contacting Member and Audience Services.
Why should I become a sustainer?
In short, you should become a sustainer because it's better for WHYY and it's better for you.
Becoming a sustainer is the best way to support WHYY because we know we can count on your support year after year. This allows us to make long-term financial decisions more effectively. Sustainer giving reduces WHYY's administrative costs so more of your donation can go to the programs you enjoy. For example, we won't need to send you renewal reminders, increasing the impact of your gift on programming.
A sustaining membership is also a budget-friendly way of giving - instead of a lump sum, you can spread your gift payments throughout the year.
