How do I become a member of XPN?

What is a Sustaining Membership?

A sustaining membership automatically renews each year. That means you don't need to make an annual donation or send in a check each year. You use your credit card to make a monthly donation that continues until you tell us to stop. You'll receive a new MemberCard each year, along with all the benefits of a Sustaining Membership!


What are the benefits of a WXPN Sustaining Membership?

Sustaining members:

  • Are automatically entered into every membership contest
  • Can select a new thank you gift every year
  • Receive all the XPN Member Benefits, including weekly offers in our E-newsletters, deep discounts on concerts, The XPoNential Music Festival, area partner locations, & more!


How does a Sustaining Membership help WXPN?

A strong sustaining membership program will help us significantly reduce the dollars spent on direct mail pieces and days spent fundraising by creating a solid base of support from donors we can count on to always be there for us. That's good for the environment and great for your ears!


How can I stop my sustaining membership?

Simply call Member Services at 1-800-565-WXPN or drop us an email at and let us know you'd like to cancel. It's that easy.*

*NOTE: If you donated for a specific premium item such as concert tickets, or XPoNential Music Festival tickets, please fulfill at least 12 months of your sustaining membership, or you may be requested to fulfill the cost of the event ticket. XPN is a non-profit, and counts on member support to offer our excellent events!
