Sustaining Membership

Sustaining membership is a new option available to supporters who would like to pay a little at a time rather than one amount annually-- and still receive benefits equivalent to your total annual contribution. You can change the amount or stop at any time.

As a Sustainer you love what 49 Writers does for you and for Alaska's literary community. You want to provide that consistent support for 49 Writers programs in an affordable monthly amount and never have to worry about your membership expiring. 

Typical monthly payments are $10, $15, or $20, but you are free to donate any monthly amount that fits your budget.

First, please complete the sustaining membership form by clicking here (only required for monthly donations).

Next, make secure automatic payments via PayPal using your credit card or PayPal account. Just click the Donate button below, select the monthly amount you would like to contribute to 49 Writers, and check the "Make this recurring (Monthly)" box.

49 Writers, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization, tax ID 27-2460995. Since we offer member discounts, check with a tax consultant to determine whether all or a portion of your contribution might be tax-deductible.

Thank you for choosing to become a sustaining member!

As a writer, librarian and literary arts advocate I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to collaborate with 49 Writers to connect readers with Alaskan writers. Whether as a participant or organizer I am consistently floored at the close relationship the 49 Writers team has with Alaska’s established and emerging writers and with the innovative workshops and events offered across the state from Craig to Kodiak.
