Becoming a monthly sustainer offers you a convenient, automatic, ongoing option for monthly contributions that you can change or stop at anytime — you’re in charge!

Sustainers are some of our stations’ most dedicated supporters – people like you who care enough to invest in your station by contributing $5 or more each month through automatic monthly deductions from your credit card. What does a sustaining membership mean for you? It means not having to worry about remembering when you’re supposed to renew each year. It means not having the hassle of receiving renewal reminders from us (plus it saves us dollars to use for programming instead of for postage). It means helping to make certain your public media stations have a consistent, stable source of income. How easy is it? You set the amount you want deducted from your credit card each and every month. If you decide you need to stop or wish to change your giving level, it’s easy to call or email us to make those changes!

How do I know which giving option is right for me?

Becoming a sustainer means you don’t have to renew your membership each year. Your credit card is automatically charged each month.  You still receive all the same benefits – including your yearly MemberCard to receive discounts from your favorite restaurants and activities, and your yearly thank-you gift. You set the amount to be charged, and you decide when to stop, increase, or decrease your monthly donation.

You may select monthly installments or you have the option of automatically renewing a once-a-year pledge. Please remember that when you auto-renew a once-per-year pledge using your credit card, your card will automatically be charged every 12 months.

Yes, when you set up your pledge to automatically renew, you are still eligible for thank you gifts. If during one of our on-air fundraisers you hear of a gift that piques your interest, please call WUFT’s Membership Department at (352) 392-5551, or email us at members@wuft.org. You are eligible to receive thank-you gifts offered at the pledge level equal to the total donations for your membership year. (e.g. If you pledge $10 monthly, you are eligible for a thank you gift offered at the $120 pledge level.)
