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.
Sustaining Membership Benefits to you:
- No more renewal letters
- No more Quiet Drive Letters
- Save on postage
- Shorter on air drives
Sustaining Membership Benefits to the station:
- Reduces mailing costs and conserves resources
- Reduces the paperwork of processing contributions

- More time for content and less on pledge drives
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.
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.
