A. Membership is St. Louis Public Radio's largest and most reliable source of revenue and provides one-third of our annual budget. Early renewal ensures your membership is always current and that your member benefits don't lapse. Many donors prefer to pay their membership as part of their monthly bills, so the early notice can easily be incorporated into their household's budget planning. When you submit payment, your membership benefits will be extended one year from the end of your current anniversary date. Any payment received more than four months before your current anniversary date is considered an "additional gift" and not an annual renewal. If you want this early gift to be considered as your annual renewal, please contact the membership office to let us know.
A. Call us, or mail us the complete address block from both mailings so we can correct our files. We can also adjust our records to limit the number or mailings you receive, so please let us know your preferences.
A. Personal on-air messages are a benefit available at the $50/month level. A written message by the contributor is broadcast four separate times on the date of their choice. If you are interested in becoming a day sponsor, or if you want to request your message please contact
the Membership Office or call 314-516-6684.
A. St. Louis Public Radio partners with Charitable Auto Resources (CARS) and the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program to accept vehicle donations on our behalf. To find out more about our vehicle donation program call 855-KWMU-CAR (855-596-8227).
A. Absolutely! Sustainers can request one thank you gift annually, contact the Membership Office, 314-516-6684, and request the gift of your choice.
