What does it mean to be a Sustaining Member?
KJZZ is grateful for all generous gifts that listeners provide the station with, be they large or small or made at the beginning or end of the year. But when you commit to giving to the station on a regular basis, you become a Sustaining Member. Your ongoing contributions get automatically deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit card, and it’s these contributions that supply a consistent base of support that the station can depend upon year after year.
What’s the advantage of becoming a Sustaining Member?
- It’s so convenient. You don’t have to sit down and write out a check and you don’t have to go searching for envelopes and stamps. Set up automatic deductions and you’ll never have to deal with getting your donation in on time.
- It gives you peace of mind. You don’t have to worry if your membership has expired or not and you can rest assured knowing that KJZZ always has a foundation of support it can rely on.
- It makes your donation go further. Sustaining Memberships streamline the station’s fundraising operations, which means money saved on sending out renewal notices can be redirected to the programming you depend on.
