Sustaining Membership

You may have heard KPBX and KSFC's invitation to “become a sustaining member.” It’s a nice sentiment, but what does it mean and why is it so important to the longevity of Spokane Public Radio?

“Sustaining members make an ongoing monthly commitment to public radio through electronic funds transfer (EFT), credit or debit cards, or your personal banking on-line program,” says Membership Manager, Beth Severn-Johnson. “They help us maintain a strong and reliable cash flow. They make it easier us to focus on adding new members during the on-air drives, and let the station staff focus on what we’re here to do – make great radio.”

Sustaining members also save the stations money. Since initiating the Sustaining program thousands of dollars have been saved in postage and printing costs for renewal forms, envelopes, and return envelopes. Sustaining members don’t need notices or postage because it’s all done automatically and electronically. The more listeners who become Sustaining Members the more your public radio saves!

Donors control how much is given to SPR. An electronic funds transfer can be as little as $3.75 per month – the amount of a basic membership – or as much as you choose. You decide.
