If VPR's 14,000 Sustaining Members had their own Vermont town, it would have the seventh largest population in the state!

What’s A Sustainer?

  • Instead of making an annual gift, Sustainers make a budget-friendly monthly contribution in any amount on a credit card or bank account - just like you’d pay for your Netflix or Spotify subscription.
  • Your donation will continue uninterrupted, but you can contact us anytime to make a change.

Why Sustainers Are Awesome

  • Sustainers provide more than HALF of VPR’s annual membership revenue, providing a steady source of income that VPR turns into the independent journalism, essential music, and inclusive, respectful conversations you rely on year round.
  • Sustainers also save VPR money because your membership is always current - no more renewal notices.

What’s In It For You?

  • The ease and convenience of automatic contributions with the flexibility of making changes anytime.
  • You’ll receive exclusive opportunities to attend events around the state, including ticket discounts and drawings.
  • You can request a thank you gift each year (check out the gifts we have available here).
  • You’ll automatically be entered in all drawings held during membership drives throughout the year, including drawings during the Sustainer Sprint for an iPad, $250 at Skirack and a pair of tickets to the Grand Point North music festival in Burlington. View the contest rules here.
