Make a significant impact as a Sustaining Member

Becoming a Sustaining Member is the best way to put more of your dollars into Kansas Public Radio’s news, music and web services.

Benefits to YOU

It’s convenient. Every month, your contribution is deducted automatically from the bank account of your choice. If you are a KU employee, it will be automatically taken from your KU pay. There will be no monthly statement from us. In fact, you will receive only one anniversary letter a year about your membership, as well as a tax receipt in January. Think of the savings on postage and paper alone!

It’s powerful. By eliminating administrative expenses, more of your contribution goes into the programming. What’s more, when enough members become Sustainers, we’ll be able to create shorter on-air drives. Imagine how good you will feel about that. 

It’s enduring. Spreading your support over time is easier on your budget. Plus, it gives KPR the foundation and security of a steady, reliable stream of program support. You will feel good knowing that you’re continuing to support KPR’s vital service to the whole KPR community.

Want to sign up? Here's How:

EFTs allow you to pay your pledge to Kansas Public Radio easily through monthly automatic deductions directly from your bank account to KPR’s account at KU Endowment. EFTs run around the 4th of every month. Once you've completed your form, please return documents to Kansas Public Radio: 1120 W 11th St, Lawrence, KS 66044

We accept payroll deductions from University of Kansas employees. Please Note: It may take some time before the KPR deduction starts at KU Payroll.


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use other sources of payment instead of my bank account?
We also accept payroll deductions from University of Kansas employees. If you’re a KU employee, you may access a KU Payroll Deduction Form above. It may take some time before the KPR deduction starts at KU Payroll. You may also sign up for ongoing monthly contributions using a credit card by calling KPR Membership Director Joanna Fewins at 785-864-5268.
How long does it take for my bank transfers to begin?
If you set up an auto-payment with your bank, the payment date will be determined between you and your bank. If you set up an electronic transfer through KPR and KU Endowment, the first deduction will usually occur on the fourth business day of the month after your authorization is received.

How can I increase my installment amount?
KPR will give you the opportunity to upgrade your contribution amount each year when you receive your membership anniversary letter. If you would like to upgrade at any other time, please send a request via email or mail to Membership Director Joanna Fewins, at 1120 W 11th St, Lawrence, KS 66044. If you would like to increase your monthly credit card contributions, click here to enter a new monthly plan (your old one will be canceled), or you may call Joanna at 785-864-5268 to upgrade.

What happens if I change banks?
If you personally set up the payments with your own bank, KPR/KU Endowment won’t need notification. If you set payments up through KPR’s KUEA account, please provide KPR with a voided blank check printed with your new account number.

Is my contribution still tax-deductible?
Yes! We will send you a tax receipt at the start of each calendar year stating the total amount available for tax-deduction for the previous calendar year.

How do I stop my automatic transfers?
Your payments continue until you decide to end them. To stop your Sustaining Membership, please call Membership Director Joanna Fewins at 785-864-5268, email her at or send a written request. Cancelation will become effective 15 days after KU Endowment receives notice of your intent to withdraw from this program. For a payment that KPR set up, you DO NOT need to notify your bank/credit union. However, if you set up an auto-payment with your banking institution, you will need to contact them.
