About Sustaining Pledges

Support Home

The best way to give to YPR…. Sustaining Pledges are ongoing monthly contributions that automatically renew each year, allowing you to support YPR and the programs you love without interruption, and allows YPR to plan our budget by knowing your support is there.  Sign up today to make your monthly contribution. As a sustainer, you’ll receive fewer mailings (no more renewal letters!) and you’ll save us money and time with less postage, paper and administrative processes – putting more of your money towards the news, music and entertainment that you rely on every day! That’s why becoming a sustainer is the best way to give to YPR!

Starting as low as $4 a month, a sustaining pledge can meet almost any budget. The average sustaining pledge at YPR is between $10 and $20 per month, although many sustainers are able to donate at higher levels, up to $100 or more a month.

Secure contributions can be made directly either from your checking or savings account (the best way for us!) through an electronic funds transfer (EFT), or through your credit or debit card. Choose the method easiest for you.

NOTE:  Donations taken directly from your bank account afford us more security and better time-efficiency in our day to day work, as the accounts don’t get hacked and have the numbers changed, nor do they expire.

A sustaining membership lasts for one year but also automatically renews every year that you continue your sustaining pledge.

If you’d like to change the bank account or credit card you’re using, or when you get a new credit card number or expiration date, please call us to update that information. Email is not a secure medium to transfer credit card information. Call 406-657-2930 to update your information.
