A yearly gift of just $20

What is a sustaining member?

Supporting Message Magazine is easy when you become a Sustaining Member. You designate the monthly contribution to be charged to your credit card account. Provide us with your preferred credit or debit card and we will process your charge accordingly. A record of your contribution will appear on your bank or credit card statement each year.

As a Sustaining Member, you increase the value of your gift by:

  • Providing MESSAGE Magazine with a stable source of yearly income to support this ministry
  • Eliminating the cost — and the hassle — of yearly renewal letters and telemarketing reminders
  • Reducing the cost of processing contributions

How do I become a member?

Decide today to contribute to MESSAGE Magazine each year. Because we try to cover our costs of credit card processing, please consider $20 or greater per year as the minimum amount.

Next, complete the gift form on our Donate page,  or call us anytime at 1-800-456-3991. You may select your preferred debit or major credit card.

Once you’ve signed up, you never have to worry about renewing your membership. Each year your contribution will automatically be charged with a record of each transaction appearing on your bank or credit card statement. Your membership is automatically extended each year.
