Sustaining Membership

What’s a Sustaining Donation?

When you make a sustaining donation to Public Radio Tulsa, you make a gift that recurs every month until you tell us to stop your donation.

Why should I consider making a Sustaining Donation?

Two reasons: Ease and consistency.  Once you make your Sustaining Donation, you never have to worry about your membership lapsing.  Your monthly gift becomes an ongoing, reliable source of funding for the station.

How do I increase or decrease my monthly Sustaining Donation?

Public Radio Tulsa will soon launch a Member Portal that will give YOU control over these changes! You also always can contact Development Director Judith Nole directly at judith-nole@utulsa.edu or (918) 631-3118.

How do I STOP my monthly Sustaining Donation?

Easy.  Contact Judith Nole at judith-nole@utulsa.edu or (918) 631-3118 and provide your name, address, daytime phone number, and the date when you would like your gift to end. Once available, you’ll be able to use the PRT Member Portal.

Are 12-Month Recurring Donations still available?

No.  ALL recurring monthly donations now are sustaining. Sustaining gifts may be stopped by the donor at any time (see above).

When will my gift be debited from my account?

When you make your Sustaining donation at publicradiotulsa.org, you will choose your billing date:  1st, 10th, or 20th of every month. This feature will be enabled Summer 2019!

What about my Thank-You gift?

When you initially make your monthly Sustaining gift, you may select a thank-you gift at your giving level just as you have before (or you may choose for all of your gift to benefit Public Radio Tulsa).

You then will have the opportunity once a year to select a thank-you gift at your giving level.

And the Southwood Early-Bird Special?

Sustainers NEVER have to worry about making their pledge early enough to receive the Early-Bird gift from Southwood Landscape & Garden Center!  

  • If you are a Sustaining donor with a gift of $10 - $19 per month:  Receive EITHER the Spring OR the Fall Southwood offer (based on initial date of gift).
  • If you are a Sustaining donor with a gift of $20 per month and above:  Receive BOTH the Spring AND the Fall Southwood offer (based on initial date of gift).

Are there any other benefits to being a Public Radio Tulsa Sustainer?

YES!  Sustainers are automatically entered into all drawings and giveaways offered by the station during fund drives.  (This does not include newsletter and other giveaways.  All other rules of drawings/giveaways apply; refer here for details).
