Support The Andover Beacon – Become A Member Today!

Round Tuit coupon 130508Like New Hampshire Public Radio or New Hampshire Public Television, The Andover Beacon just puts its “product” out there for free and hopes for the support of the community.

Whether you live year-round in Andover, summer in Andover, or have moved away from Andover, the Beacon is working hard to keep you informed about our wonderful town and would greatly appreciate your financial support.

Aside from the satisfaction of contributing to a better-informed, more vital community, our three different categories of membership enjoy these benefits.

Local Members

People with a year-round Andover mailing address can support the Beacon by becoming members with any donation, large or small.

Currently, the only benefit of membership is that each Andover member is included ina monthly drawing for prizes provided by our advertisers and other local businesses. In the future, we expect to include other benefits of membership.

We don't count receiving the Beacon as a benefit of membership, since you don't have to be a member to receive the Beacon. But the satisfaction of knowing that you helped the Beacon be in everyone's mailbox is definitely a benefit of membership!

Seasonal Members

For people who get their mail part of the year at an Andover mailing address and part of the year elsewhere, we offer a Seasonal membership for a minimum $30 donation. (Foreign addresses cost extra.)

The benefit of a Seasonal membership is that we'll mail the Beacon to your non-Andover address for whatever months you tell us to. And for those months that you're at your Andover address, you'll be included in the monthly drawings.

Out-Of-Town Members

Friends of Andover who must live elsewhere year-round can receive the Beacon year-round with a minimum $30 donation. (Foreign addresses cost extra.)

Honorary Members

We would like to send the Beacon for free to former Andover residents who now live in nursing homes, assisted-living communities, and other group situations. If you know of someone like that who would enjoy the Beacon, please let us know.

Gift Subscriptions

Anyone can pay $30 to have a subscription mailed to any U.S. address. (Foreign addresses cost extra.)
