Sustaining Membership

Sustaining Membership is the most convenient way to support Vermont Public. Learn more and become a sustainer today!

Simplify your support by becoming a Vermont Public Sustainer

  • Instead of making an annual gift, 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 Vermont Public's annual membership revenue comes from Sustainers, providing a steady source of income that Vermont Public turns into news, programming, music, and conversations you rely on. 

Sustaining Member Benefits

  • Uninterrupted Vermont Public member status: your monthly contribution will continue until you choose to make a change.
  • The ease and convenience of automatic contributions with the flexibility of making changes at any time.
  • Sustainer-only drawings and ticket giveaways throughout the year.
  • The opportunity to purchase discounted tickets and pre-sale tickets to events statewide.
  • The opportunity to request a thank-you gift each year. Sustaining members are eligible for one thank you gift a year that falls within their currently giving level.
