Frequently Asked Questions
What is a recurring membership?
Becoming an MTFP recurring member means your donation recurs automatically on a monthly or yearly basis via credit card. This provides MTFP with the sort of predictable revenue that allows us to plan multi-year budgets, and it helps eliminate renewal mailings or lapses in your membership.
How can I renew my membership, change my giving amount or frequency, or change my credit card information?
Recurring memberships automatically renew on a monthly or yearly basis. If you need to change your donation amount or update your billing information, or your membership is up for renewal soon, please contact email@example.com.
