The Race Is On: VPR's Sustainer Sprint

Mar 9, 2017

VPR’s Sustainer Sprint is a 30 hour race to welcome 300 new Sustaining Members to the VPR Family. The sprint begins Friday, March 10 at 6 a.m. and ends at noon on Saturday, March 11.

If VPR's 12,500 Sustaining Members had their own Vermont town, it would have the seventh largest population in the state!

What’s A Sustainer?

  • Instead of making a single gift once a year, 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 until you contact us to make a change.

Why Sustainers Are Awesome

  • Sustainers provide HALF of VPR’s annual membership revenue, providing a steady source of revenue 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.
