My membership is current. Why are you sending me a renewal notice now?

Over 50% of WHYY's funding comes from members like you. Because you're so important to our programs, we start sending out renewal notices in advance of your membership's expiration. If you renew prior to the expiration date, your membership will be extended for a full 12 months from your current expiration date. Become an auto renew member to minimize the amount of reminders you recieve.

Why do you keep soliciting me with mail even though I am a member?

To save money for the quality programming you expect from WHYY, we print and send out renewal notices in bulk. This means that it takes several weeks for a renewal letter to get to you. As a result, your renewal gift and our letter probably crossed in the mail.

How do I get invited to member experiences at WHYY?

WHYY offers a variety of member and community experiences in our Independence Foundation Civic Space and at locations around the community. Members are invited by email and through the mail. Please help us save money by joining our member event email list

Is my contribution tax deductible?

Contributions to WHYY are tax deductible to the full extent of the law, except for the fair market value of any thank-you gifts received. We will send a thank-you letter including the deductible amount for each contribution you make.
