Become a Sustaining Member

When you become a Sustaining Member, you will enjoy the convenience of uninterrupted membership to your favorite radio station, while also providing a dependable foundation of support for TSPR.

Your donation will be billed to your credit card or bank account each month or, if you are a Western Illinois University employee, your donation will automatically be deducted through the WIU payroll deduction plan. Your membership will automatically renew each year and then just once a year, we will send you a letter giving you an opportunity to update your pledge amount. Of course, you can change or cancel your payments at any time by calling the Western Illinois University Foundation at 1-309-298-1861.
