VPR and Vermont PBS have united to better serve the evolving needs of our community. Your gift now supports the unified organization, and we are working to combine fundraising platforms. In the meantime, you may receive overlapping communication as we work to improve your membership experience. We appreciate your support and patience while we work to streamline our systems!

What is a Sustainer?

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, and 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.


How do I make a change to my sustaining membership?

You can update your address or email, change your monthly contribution, switch to a direct withdrawal from your bank account, or change your credit card information by using this form. You can also contact Jean Murphy, Sustaining Membership Coordinator, membership@vpr.org or at 802-654-4359. To ensure the security of your information, please do not send credit card or bank account information via email.


Where is the thank-you gift I requested?

We appreciate your patience. In an attempt to accumulate enough requests to leverage "bulk shipping" pricing, we generally mail thank you gifts every 4-6 weeks, and within a 4-6 week window following a membership drive. If that amount of time has passed since your request, it's possible your request wasn't captured. Let us know by emailing membership@vpr.net.


Can I get a PBS Passport for my gift?

As you may know, VPR and Vermont PBS are in the process of joining forces to become a single organization. PBS Passport will be made available to all donors contributing $60 or more. We will begin providing access to existing VPR donors in mid-May. All other thank you gifts are currently associated only with either TV or radio fundraisers. If you have more questions about the merger, please check out our merger-specific FAQ page here.


Do you have questions about other ways you can support VPR?

Information about corporate matching gifts, car donations, planned giving and more can be found here. 


Do you have questions about membership drives?

Why does VPR have membership drives? How do challenges work? Who's taking my pledge on the phone? Find the answers to these and other questions with Membership Drive FAQ.
