What Do We Mean by "Member"?

Last Updated: Nov 04, 2016 04:23PM EDT

What does membership mean?

When you show your support through a donation, you automatically become a WAMU Member. This means we will reach out to you with important updates, and, depending on your donation level, you may become eligible for perks like invitations to special events and more.

How long does membership last?

Membership implies an annual commitment to supporting WAMU, whether it's a one-time donation made each year, or a contribution made in monthly installments.

  • For sustaining members (those making monthly donations), membership is valid after the receipt of the first monthly contribution and continues monthly until the member requests a change of amount or cancellation.
  • For others, membership is valid for 12 months from the receipt of the donation.

How do I become a member?
