Why Become a WCTE Member?

In order to do such an incredible job of meeting the educational, outreach and programming needs of our citizens, WCTE has long depended on the generosity of others.

As a public benefit organization, WCTE relies heavily on a core of faithful supporters and friends whose annual financial commitment exceeds the basic levels of membership giving. If you consider yourself to be one of those special individuals, please think about becoming a Studio Club or Directors' Circle member.

WCTE Sustainer Membership:

Why Become a Sustainer Member? Because becoming a Sustainer Member is so easy!

  • First, choose how much you would like to give every month - $5, $10, $50, any level that works for you.  ($5 is the minimum Sustainer Membership offered)
  • Second, determine if you would like your automatic contribution to come from your bank account, then find your account number and your bank's routing number at the bottom of your checks.  If you prefer to give by credit/debit card, then just have that handy when you sign up. 
  • Lastly, go to our secure online form and select the Monthly Sustainer Membership* option to complete the online form.  After just a couple of minutes, you'll never have to worry about renewing your membership again! 

Your contribution as a Sustainer Member is providing a steady stream of support to WCTE!

*WCTE will continue your monthly contribution until you notify WCTE that you wish to stop the monthly contribution and WCTE has had a reasonable amount of time to act upon the request. A record of each transaction will appear on your monthly banking institution's statement and will serve as your receipt.
