Sustainers

AETN Sustainers are a special group of people who provide a reliable, steady stream of support for AETN by authorizing a monthly or quarterly charge to their credit card or bank account, and allowing us to automatically renew their AETN Foundation membership annually. It's safe, benefits both you and AETN, and you'll never have write another check to the AETN Foundation again!

Your gift of as little as $5.00 per month, or $15.00 per quarter, allows us to stop membership reminder mail and phone calls to you and save those precious dollars for AETN programming.

You set the amount and the method you prefer ' either credit card or electronic bank draft. Your membership will then remain active as long as you continue. You can stop anytime you wish, simply by writing to us here at the AETN Foundation.

As an AETN Sustainer, you'll never have to worry about remembering to renew your membership. You'll save AETN postage and administrative costs and have a little less in your mailbox! And spreading your support out over the year makes generosity easier on your budget and gives AETN the security of a steady, reliable stream of support.

For more information, or to request a Sustainer form, call the AETN Foundation toll-free at 1(800) 662-2386.
