  • You’re part of a community that ensures KPCC can fulfill its public service mission for years to come.
  • You’ll automatically be entered into all Membership sweepstakes and giveaways.
  • You’ll have access to the Sustainer Gift Catalog, which you can use to get KPCC gear at greatly reduced prices.

More reasons why listeners like you became Sustainers:

"Unbiased news and the huge amount of general, political, social and cultural information plus the fun shows on the weekends… can’t beat it for the price! At my donation level (10 bucks/month), it costs me 32 cents a day! I know that I belong to a very special group of people who bring the best radio the airwaves have to offer and all those who help pay for it!"

- Thomas, Sustaining Member in West Hollywood


"After years of sporadically remembering to make a donation to KPCC, we are growing up, being responsible and becoming Sustaining Members!"

- Ashley and Elton, Sustaining Members in Los Angeles


"I’m a Sustainer because KPCC is the best news operation in Southern California. And I’m voting with my wallet for shorter member drives!"

- Al, Sustaining Member in Huntington Beach
