Sustainer Program

We are launching a new, automatically renewing Sustainer program in April 2019. Many of you take advantage of our monthly or quarterly installment plans to make your gift; these plans will not change.

Sustainer plan gifts can be made on an annual, monthly, or quarterly basis. Your gift will automatically be charged to your credit card until you request a change or cancellation. You will not need to renew your gift each year.

Gifts that are currently enrolled in installment plans will not automatically renew. Please sign up for our Sustainer program to take advantage of this new offering. Credit cards for both installment plans and the Sustainer program will still be charged on the 15th of each month. Sustainers may cancel or modify their payment schedule at any time.
