What is Sustaining Membership, and how do I become a sustainer?
Sustaining Members provide WGVU with a dependable base of revenue used to sustain the programs, reporting, and exceptional journalism that you depend on. As a monthly sustainer your contribution is ongoing, and is always active until you say otherwise giving you complete control. Sustainers do not receive renewal notices in the mail which means that even more resources are saved and go right back into the programming. Most importantly, sustainers have the satisfaction of knowing they are always actively doing their part to keep WGVU thriving.
To become a sustainer, simply choose the "Monthly Sustaining" option on our online donation form, or call (616) 331-6666.
How can I update my credit card information?
To update your payment method for your existing sustaining gift, please submit a new sustaining donation at https://www.wgvu.org/donate. When you submit your new sustaining gift, WGVU will discontinue gifts from your previous payment method. You may also update your payment method for your sustaining gift by calling WGVU at 616-331-6666 during business hours Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm. Thank you for your continued partnership!
How do I suspend or cancel my contribution?

You may contact us to cancel your contribution by email or calling us at (616) 331-6666. Be sure to include your contact information and/or membership ID number with your request for faster processing.
How can I find out when my Membership expires?
