As a KQED Sustaining Member, you agree to make an ongoing monthly pledge of support. Your contributions can be deducted directly from your credit card or bank account, or you can choose to send checks in response to our reminders. In so doing, you provide KQED with an invaluable resource-a regular, stable source of revenue to support both our daily operations and the development of future projects and programs.
Developing a solid financial future is a priority at KQED. We succeed with community support, despite funding cutbacks from other sources.
Your pledge of regular long term support enables us to focus more of our energies and resources on meeting the challenges ahead, while knowing that our day-to-day operations are funded.
As a KQED Sustaining Member, you are a friend we can rely on and can communicate with in a more relaxed fashion. Instead of receiving annual appeals for renewed support, Sustaining Members are offered more information about the programs they love. You'll receive our grateful thanks for your committed support, as well as all the regular benefits of membership. You'll also receive the KQED MemberCard, entitling you to many discounts and special offers.
Once a year we will send you a record of your giving history for tax purposes, affording you an opportunity to change your pledge amount or payment method.
