Become a Monthly Sustaining Member on Patreon

(Note, contributions made to Mount Island via Patreon are not tax-deductible. Our Patreon supporters are not making “donations” but rather purchasing memberships. To make a tax-deductible donation to Mount Island, refer to the instructions above.)

Why Patreon?

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that provides ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or “patrons”. Patreon is popular among creators because it allows artists to receive funding directly from their fans on a recurring basis. And it’s egalitarian: all you need is an internet connection and a bank account to become a patron of the Arts!
