Over 10,000 MPT members have switched their annual support to monthly support as an MPT Sustainer.

A Sustaining Membership is the best way to support the programs and services you’ve come to expect from MPT. Your monthly support provides a steady, reliable stream of income to purchase and produce first-rate dramas, world-class musical performances, in-depth reporting, and local productions that capture the stories of our history and culture.

Sustaining memberships start at as little as $5 per month allowing you to choose whatever amount is right for your budget. As a sustainer your membership will always stay current, month to month and year to year.

1. What is a Sustaining Membership? It's a hassle-free way to give that's easier on your wallet!
MPT Sustainers support the station’s programming on a monthly basis with a gift of $5 or more that is automatically deducted from your credit card or checking account.

2. How long does my membership last? Your membership will never expire!
As an MPT Sustainer your membership will remain current month to month and year to year.  You'll never miss an issue of the MPT Program Guide, and you won't receive renewal reminders in the mail.
