Sustaining Membership

What is a Sustaining Member?

When you become a Sustaining Member, you will enjoy the convenience of uninterrupted membership to your favorite public media, while also providing a dependable foundation of support for KDLL.

Your donation can be billed to your bank account through an electronic funds transfer (EFT) or charged to your credit or debit card each month and your membership will automatically renew each year. Once a year, we will send you a record of your giving for tax purposes and give you an opportunity to update your pledge amount. Of course, you can change or cancel your payments at any time.

If you would like to become a sustaining member, you may do so online.

Thank you for your support.
