Become a Sustainer!
Become a sustaining member of WYSO: You choose an amount to give each month and we'll automatically bill your credit or debit card, and that's it! You will automatically be renewed next year, which means no renewal notices ever again. Each January we'll send you a statement for your taxes, along with a new MemberCard for the levels at $10/mo. or higher. We'll also offer you a thank-you gift once a year. If you want to change your monthly amount, stop it, or have questions just contact Membership Coordinator Stephanie Elsass at (937) 769-1388 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sustaining memberships have the potential to lower the amount of on-air fundraising we do. Because we can spend less time and money focusing on renewing members, we can concentrate much more on getting more listeners to become members. Plus, less mail means that we're able to be more environmentally mindful - we'll be saving paper and processing expenses.

Sustaining Membership FAQ's
Q: Am I automatically renewed every year?
A: Yes, a sustaining membership is an ongoing monthly donation plan - which means we'll continue to deduct money from your account until you let us know to stop or change it. For example, if you want to donate $120 a year to WYSO as a sustaining member, we will charge your credit card $10 a month. As a sustaining member, our system will automatically recreate that pledge for you each year and continue to charge you $10 a month unless you tell us otherwise. No need to renew your pledge from year to year.
Q: When should I expect to see my monthly contribution on my card card/bank statement?
A: In general, your card will be charged during the third week of each month.
Q: How do I cancel my plan?
A: Easy as pie! Send us an email or give us a call at (937) 769-1388.
Q: I love the thank-you gifts! Do I get one each year?
A: Yes! Every January we'll send you your tax letter, a new MemberCard (for donors $10/month or more) plus instructions on how to choose your yearly thank-you gift. If you're listening to a pledge drive during the year and you really don't want to wait until January to choose your gift, go ahead and email us and we'll be happy to send you your gift early.
Q: I would like to change/update my credit card information. How do I do that?
A: Give us a call at (937) 769-1388.
