Become a Sustaining Member
Sustaining membership is the easiest way to support the programs you love on Kansas Public Radio! As a Sustainer, you make monthly contributions from your checking account, credit card, or if you're a University of Kansas employee, you may sign up with payroll deductions. Your monthly contributions continue automatically so there’s no need for renewal reminders. Your membership is always current, and so is your support for KPR.
For more information, please contact our membership department at email@example.com or call 785-864-5268.
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/debit card by signing up online, or 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?

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 Sustaining membership?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or send a written request to 1120 W 11th St, Lawrence, KS 66044. 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.
