What are the advantages of becoming a Sustaining Leadership Circle Member?

  • Leadership Circle members may also be Sustaining Members. Sustaining Members agree to make an ongoing monthly, quarterly, semiannual, or annual donation as a pledge of support. Your donations can be charged automatically to your credit or debit card.
  • Sustaining Membership automatically renews each year, eliminating renewal notices and reducing mailings and phone calls. Changes or cancellation can be made at any time simply by calling 550-8400.

Do I need to designate my donation to television or radio?

  • No, but you may if you wish. Undesignated gifts to Alaska Public Media are devoted to the highest priorities of the organization as directed by the board of directors. Designated gifts to either are devoted to those operations in accordance with donor intent. We are pleased to honor your preferences and, through your generosity, we are able to support a broad mission of public service to the community.
