KSMU Sustainer Program


Become a Sustainer

What is a KSMU Sustainer?

Our Sustainers are a special family of KSMU members who support quality programming with automatic monthly contributions through their bank accounts or credit cards. Sustaining members play an important role in the daily operations at the station, providing KSMU with a reliable stream of support to help cover broadcasting expenses.

Why become a Sustainer?

It’s convenient. Because your contribution is automatically deducted on a monthly basis, you won’t have to remember to write out a membership check each year. Your KSMU Membership status continues without interruption, which eliminates the need for costly renewal notices. That means we spend less of your contribution on paper and postage. And if your life changes, so can your plan.  You can increase, decrease or suspend your giving at any time.

It's powerful. By eliminating administrative expenses, more of your contribution goes directly into the programming. Plus it gives KSMU the security of a steady, reliable stream of program support. When enough members become Sustainers, we'll be able to create shorter on-air drives. Imagine how good you will feel about that!

It's the best value. Spreading your support over time is easy on your budget. As an added benefit, all Sustainers receive the KSMU MemberCard, which provides 2-for-1 benefits at dozens of regional restaurants and attractions. Becoming a Sustainer is the best value for your dollar.
