Sustaining Membership

Becoming a sustaining member means you are providing reliable support for the programs you count on. When you become a sustaining member, your donation will automatically renew year after year to keep KSTK alive and well in Wrangell. You’ll save time, money, and resources, and ensure public radio remains possible in our community.

What does it mean to be a sustaining member?
A Sustaining Membership is an easy and efficient way for you to support the programs you rely on through secure, automatic monthly payments from your credit card, debit card, or bank account. This means we’ll deduct your designated contribution from your account until you let us know to stop or change it. Sustaining members provide a stable source of revenue that we put directly into your favorite programs.

How do I sign up?
When entering your donation online, check the box that says “Yes! Make my pledge a sustaining one.” You can also call us at (907) 874-2345.

Can I be a sustaining member if I only donate once annually or does this option only apply to monthly donations?
You may select monthly or quarterly installments or the option of automatically renewing a once-per-year donation. Please remember that when you auto-renew a once-per-year donation using your credit card, your card will automatically be charged every 12 months.

What if I want to increase my contribution?
You are welcome to change your contribution amount or frequency at any time, simply give us a call! You are also welcome to make an additional gift at any time. The same procedures apply if your financial circumstances change and you need to reduce your gift.

What if my credit card expires or changes?
If your credit card expires or changes please call the CoastAlaska Membership Department at (907) 586-1670 ext 403. We cannot currently accept credit card changes online.

Is my contribution still tax-deductible?
Yes! You will receive an annual thank you letter on the anniversary of your initial gift to use for tax purposes.

Will I still receive a thank you gift?
Absolutely! When you set up your donation to automatically renew, you are still eligible for thank you gifts. If during one of our on-air fundraisers you hear of a gift that piques your interest, please call us at (907) 874-2345. You are eligible to receive thank-you gifts offered at a contribution level equal to your total donations for your membership year. (e.g. If you donate $10 monthly, you are eligible for a thank you gift offered at the $120 contribution level.)

How do I stop my auto payments? To stop your sustaining membership, simply call our membership office at 907-586-1670 ext. 403, or send us your request in writing. You DO NOT need to notify your bank or credit card company.
