Sustaining Members

VPM Collage

Want to learn more about what it means to be a sustaining member of VPM? You're in the right place.

What is a sustaining member? 
Sustaining members are donors who give at least $5 monthly to VPM. Whether giving $5 or $50 a month, our sustainers are true believers in fulfilling the promise of public media to make our community a better place!

Why become a sustaining member? 
Every sustaining member has a unique “why” behind their continued support. What's your why?

  • Sustaining members are integral to supporting our mission to educate, entertain and inspire our community. Their regular gifts help fund operating costs and keep us on the air.
  • You can set it and forget it. As a sustaining member, you choose the amount you give each month and your payment method and we'll handle the rest until you say "stop."
  • Sustaining members get access to VPM Passport, an online streaming library of over 1,500 episodes of your favorite VPM and PBS programs and an array of engaging documentaries and special programs. PLUS, Passport members get exclusive streaming benefits like early access to binge some of your favorite programs the day of their premiere!
  • Regular monthly donations result in lowered processing costs— meaning more of your donation goes directly to the programs you love.

I’m already a sustaining member. How do I increase my monthly donation? 
The VPM Member Center is now LIVE! With the VPM Member Center, you can manage elements of your membership online at any time, including adjusting the amount you give each month, changing your payment method or contact information and even viewing your recent giving history.

If you need further assistance, please email [email protected], and someone from our Member Services team will be happy to help as soon as possible.
