4. Monthly Auto Draft Sustaining Membership - $8-$50/month
Through this affordable Monthly Auto Draft Sustaining Membership option, you can further support the Clemson Club and help elevate our impact in the DC/MD/VA region for as little as $8/month. This membership automatically renews so you never have to worry about renewing again.
Monthly Auto Drafts are linked through the Clemson Club's PayPal account, so you must have a PayPal account to set up your draft (if you don't have one, don't worry - it's easy to set up). Your draft will begin on the day you subscribe (set up your payment), and it will take place on the same day each month for your selected amount. Monthly draft amounts are pre-set for $8, $10, $12, $15, $20, $25, $30, $40 or $50.
**NEW - If you would like to support the Clemson Club at a different level, you can now create your own Auto Draft Membership here instead of selecting a pre-set draft amount.

For example, all memberships purchased at any time in 2021 will expire on December 31, 2021.
