Sustaining Monthly Membership

Sustaining Members help ensure WTMD's financial future
and reduce the need for on-air fundraising.

By making a sustaining monthly contribution, debited from your bank account or charged to a credit card, without expiration, WTMD is is able to put more of your dollars toward the music you love. Sustaining monthly members help us reduce printing costs, and allow us to better project our monthly fund raising income, and that allows us to more securely manage the station’s finances. Plus, the more sustaining members we have, the more days we can cut from on-air fund raising!

There’s no need for renewal reminders because your membership is always current, saving the station thousands of dollars in postage and paper every year.

And sustaining members are automatically entered into all membership contests!

If you need to cancel at any time, please call Membership at 410-704-5305

Frequently Asked Questions

No. Your gift will renew automatically. You can contact us when you know your card is about to expire, so we can update it and keep your payments continuing, uninterrupted – just call 410-704-8938 or email wtmdmembership@towson.edu. All monthly memberships are auto-renew. We do not have annual monthly memberships. You may stop whenever you like.

You can pay by credit, debit or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).  EFT is a direct debit from your checking or savings account.  EFT’s have a lower processing fee and do not decline nearly as often as credit cards (and you don’t have to update your card’s expiration date!).  We encourage EFT for those reasons but are happy to take whatever payment method works best for you!

When you become a sustaining member, you may choose a thank you gift at your appropriate giving level. When we have new thank you gifts during fund drives, sustaining members are welcome to choose a new thank you gift at your current giving level. Just give membership a call or email and we’ll be happy to send you one. We ask that you choose one gift per year. If you are able to upgrade or make an additional gift during the drive, please click on the Additional Gift link on our pledge page.  Current thank you gifts are available at a special, lower price for our monthly members. We are so grateful for that extra support during our crucial fund drives. Thank you!

Absolutely! WTMD always welcomes as much support as you are able to contribute, and we greatly value any additional gift you are inspired to make. Additional gifts to support specific projects like our First Thursday concerts, in-station events and more.  Sometimes we’ll have new thank you gifts available or concert tickets during our fund drives that you may want to make an additional gift to receive.

You are in complete control of your giving, and you are welcome to increase, decrease or stop your monthly donations at any time.  You may update your card on our secure, online form. Or contact us at 410-704-5305 or email wtmdmembership@towson.edu to make any changes to your plan.

No problem! Please call the Membership Department at 410-704-5305 and speak to someone directly. Do not leave credit card numbers on voice mail or through email. You may also update your card on our secure, online form. If you notice any discrepancies on your statement, call us immediately. We’ll work with you to correct the problem.

We process your first payment right away. Moving forward, monthly installments are processed between the 1st and 5th.

Towson University Public Media will send you a letter every January stating your total giving from the previous year that will serve as your tax receipt.

Your monthly contribution takes you out of our traditional “Renewal Cycle” so you will not receive any renewal notices.  You will receive a couple of letters each year asking for additional gifts during our major periods of fund raising and upgrade asks, plus your thank you letter and tax receipt.

Thank you for considering a sustaining membership. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call membership at 410-704-5305. If you're ready to go, make your monthly gift here. And thank you for your support!
