Become a Michigan Radio Sustainer

sustainingBecome a Michigan Radio Sustainer

Start a monthly contribution that is automatically debited or charged to an account of your choosing. It’s convenient, efficient, and powerful.

A Sustaining Gift allows you to support the programs you rely on through secure, automatic monthly payments from your bank account, credit card or debit card.

Sustainers make an ongoing monthly contribution  —  which means we will continue to deduct money from your account until you let us know to stop or change it.
