Why is it so beneficial to become a sustainer?
Becoming a sustainer makes giving easier for both you and the Sister Cities network. It lowers Sister Cities administration costs by receiving donations automatically, and provides a reliable stream of contributions throughout the year.
How Does the Sustainer Program Work?
The sustainer program is a system where your monthly donation to Sister Cities is automatically debited from your checking or savings account.
Is it secure to become a sustainer?
The sustainer program is a very secure way to make donations, and is less risky than sending a check in the mail. As with any contribution, your information is kept completely private.
Can I withdraw from the sustainer program if I decide I do not like it?
Yes, you can cancel your contribution at any time by sending us written notice.
Does becoming a sustainer require any cost in addition to my contribution?
Becoming a sustainer is free. It does not cost you anything to sign up.
How large or small of a contribution can I make?
We have sustainers who give anywhere from $5 a month to $100 a month. Your contribution, no matter how small, makes a difference.
Will I receive a tax receipt for my monthly donations for tax purposes?
Yes, every January, we send sustainers a tax receipt for their total monthly donations from the previous year.
