Your Monthly Gift Makes a Difference!

Become an Austin PBS Sustaining Member

A sustaining membership is an easy, convenient and affordable way to support Austin PBS and provide dependable financial support for your community-supported public television station. Sustaining Members make an ongoing, monthly contribution from either their credit card or checking account. It is not an installment plan, meaning that it does not stop automatically and you never have to worry about renewing!

Why give monthly?

By spreading out your support over the year, you provide Austin PBS with a steady, reliable stream of funding that allows us to plan into the future and make long-term decisions about programming and community outreach efforts. Your recurring gift also reduces administrative costs for Austin PBS, ensuring more of your dollars are invested in local education programs and award-winning local productions.

    Did you know Austin PBS loses thousands of dollars each month to credit and debit card fees? It's true. We know you want to make the most of your monthly donations, so we encourage you to make your monthly gift by direct debit through your bank account. With direct debit more of your donation comes directly to the station, which keeps our processing costs down and allows more of your gift to pay for the programming you love!
