Sustaining Membership

Simplify your support by becoming a Sustaining Member of VPR:

  • Instead of making a single gift once a year, Sustainers make a budget-friendly automatic monthly contribution on a credit card or bank account - just like you'd pay for your Netflix or Spotify subscription.
  • Your monthly contribution can be in any amount you choose. 
  • Your donation will continue uninterrupted until you contact us to make a change.
  • Half of VPR's annual membership revenue comes from Sustainers, providing a steady source of income that VPR turns into independent news, essential music, and inclusive conversations you rely on.
