Frequently Asked Questions

What is a sustaining membership?

A sustaining membership means your donation recurs automatically on a monthly or yearly basis via credit card. This provides the Tribune with the sort of predictable revenue that allows us to plan budgets a few years at a time, and it helps eliminate renewal mailings or lapses in your membership.

How can I renew my membership?

Sustaining memberships automatically renew on a monthly or yearly basis. If you need to update your billing information, or your membership is up for renewal soon, please contact membership@texastribune.org.

Can I send my donation by mail?

Yes! Simply fill out this donation form and mail it to:
