Sustaining members contribute a small amount ($5 per month or more) towards CJMP’s monthly operating expenses (approx. $500 per month). This happens when you set up recurring monthly payments via PayPal, your bank or credit union account. See payment options below or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Sustaining memberships are our lifeblood! They free up valuable time by allowing our staff and volunteers to concentrate their efforts on increasing the quantity, quality, & scope of our programming by providing support, training and organization to volunteers, in turn allowing you to keep listening to great local and alternative content. Helping to keep us on the air means that you are strengthening community-owned & -operated media in Powell River for us and future generations!
If you would like to set up sustaining monthly payments via PayPal, use this gizmo:
If you don’t use PayPal, here are some other payment options:
Pay by direct transfer
If you bank with First Credit Union, you can make a direct transfer by going to a branch of First Credit Union in person and requesting a transfer from your account to our account #422253. Be sure to have them transfer the money into our chequing account, and please have them add a memo to that transaction so we know it came from you. There will be no fee for a direct transfer. One real advantage for us is that these direct transfers come to us without any commission skimmed off the top. Also, you can ask First Credit Union to set up a series of recurring monthly payments, if that’s easier for your bookkeeping. We like it because it spreads the cash flow more evenly.
Pay by cheque or cash
If you choose to pay by cheque or cash, please download our membership application form, fill it out, attach $10 for one year’s membership or multiples of $10 for as many years as you want to be a member, and return it to us at our mailing address (4476C Marine Ave., Powell River, BC, V8A 2K2) or hand it to our Membership Coordinator. If you wish to make recurring monthly payments with a set of postdated cheques, that works for us. Please make them all payable on the first day of each month for as long as you intend to continue being a sustaining member.
Pay by e-transfer
Go to your online banking site and find the place where you can send e-transfers. The email address you’ll need to send to is email@example.com. You’ll be asked to enter a security question, and you will need to let our Treasurer know the answer to that question, so you should email the answer to the security question to the same email address. Please note that your bank or credit union will add a service charge. The amount may vary from one institution to another, so be sure to ask your bank or credit union if you need to know. One downside of e-transfers is that it is impossible to set up recurring monthly payments.
