BPR Monthly Sustainers make convenient ongoing contributions that are automatically drafted each month. It's an easy and efficient way to support all the NPR and BPR programs you rely on through secure, automatic monthly payments from your credit card, debit card or bank account. This means we'll deduct your designated contribution from your account until you decide to let us know you'd like to stop or change it. A Monthly Sustaining Membership is budget friendly, easy, and it's made a world of difference to the financial health of the station, reducing our dependence on seasonal, traditional fund drives.
