And we also include the cost of shipping and handling in the cost of the item.
A lot of sustainers love shopping for member gear!
They buy MPR merch for their friends and family, and know they're giving extra support to their favorite station.
We have a question from the chat....
Underwriting messages must follow very strict guidelines set by the FCC
The individual messages have not gotten any longer.. but
you may be hearing multiple different underwriting messages grouped consecutively together in a group
so it sounds like the messages are longer
We are truly lucky to receive such great support from our local businesses

No prob! - As a Sustainer you can request a complimentary thank-you gift of your choice each year.

Did you know that MPR has the largest Sustaining Member program in all of public broadcasting?

And one of the largest Sustainer programs of all non-profit orgs in the U.S.!
Next question: My MPR renewal isn’t due for 2 months, yet I received a renewal notice today. Why so early? Why so many notices?
We send renewal reminders out 3-4 months ahead of your membership expiration date so
members have time to plan for their renewal donation without a break in membership or in their Minnesota Monthly subscription.
We understand that you’re busy and remembering when it’s time to renew your MPR Membership is probably not on the top of your list – and that’s why we send out multiple reminders.
Again, if you prefer few/no emailed or mailed renewal notices, contact Member Services. We understand some members prefer one way or the other.
Another question for you: "How do I donate my car?"
We have a vehicle donation program that makes this process really simple and takes care of all of the details for you
There is no cost to you, and we’ll take care of everything – from picking up your vehicle, to processing the paperwork to sending you a receipt for your taxes.
Or you can call 866-789-8627.
We once had someone donate a plane!
Another ? for you, Nicole: "What is the Archive? Why isn’t the story there? "
The MPR Archive is home to nearly 5,000 stories dating back to 1972.
These stories were digitized from reel-to-reel tapes.
This project is by no means complete, and our archivists are regularly adding content.
Jess do you have the link to the Archive handy?
