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 those who donate a recurring monthly contribution of $5 or more to VPM.  

Why become a sustaining member? 
When you become a Sustaining member your support stays current and VPM’s processing costs go down — meaning more of the money you donate goes directly to the programs you love. 

Are there other benefits to being a sustaining member? 
When you become a sustaining member, you become eligible to access VPM Passport, an online streaming library of over 1,500 episodes of your favorite VPM and PBS programs, including the entire Ken Burns collection. Additionally, if you become a sustaining member during a membership campaign, you have the opportunity to choose from a selection of limited thank you gifts (available gifts vary by campaign).

I’m already a sustaining member. How do I increase my monthly donation? 
Presently the best way to increase your monthly sustaining donation is to email [email protected]. Someone from our Member Services team will be happy to make the change on your behalf.
