Supporters of the Show



It is with excitement that I introduce some changes to how donations to the show are handled.

In the beginning, folks would donate $1 here, $2 there, and every time, I would send a card--personally written back to thank them. Did the cost of a card and postage make me break even? Sometimes. But it's the thought that counts.

After a while, folks started asking for a PayPal subscription, to be able to donate on a monthly model. So we introduced this, and over the past four years, it's gone great!

We introduced three tiers:
  • Contributor - $2 per month
  • Fellow - $5 per month
  • Producer - $10 per month
These subscribers who gave back all got personalized cards in the mail and their names on our website for their continued gifts which made it possible to continue to evolve and bring quality Masonic education to you week after week, month after month for over 9 years now. It's incredible and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Behind it all, we still had folks buying our Producers Pins for a one time gift of $10. But you know what never sat well with me? 

Our Monthly Producers never got a pin. 

Starting today, they will. If you're a current Producer level benefactor, I'm sending you a Producers Pin in the mail. 

But also, over the last year, people have really been asking me to start a Patreon as well. I thought long and hard on this and I am announcing today that the same tiers and benefits that currently exist with our PayPal monthly benefactors will also be available on Patreon

You asked for it, and it's happening. The PayPal subscription donations aren't going anywhere. If you currently donate to us this way, it won't change. In fact, if you're a Producer, I'm sending you a pin. 😀

In a nut shell: You will be able to give via PayPal Subscriptions or Patreon. Both have the same tier structure but with a plus. The Producers will now receive a Pin. This is to say, "Thank You!", to all our loyal producers over the years. 

PayPal Subscription Donations will be as follows:
  • $2 Contributor - Your name on the website.
  • $5 Fellow - A personalized thank you card in the mail & your name on the website. 
  • $10 Producer - A Producer's Pin, thank you card and name on the website. 

Patreon will follow the same structure. 
  • $2 Contributor - Your name on the website.
  • $5 Fellow - A personalized thank you card in the mail & your name on the website. 
  • $10 Producer - A Producer's Pin, thank you card and name on the website. 
What's the difference? Why do this? Only for your convenience. Thank you all! 

To all current Producers, keep an eye out in the mail. To all other contributors, if you decide to "move up" to Producer level, a Pin will come to you along with a thank you card. 

You're all the best. Thank you for making the WCY Podcast your choice for Masonic Education and for allowing me the privilege of coming back week after week.
