Vanguard Donor System to Shut Down at 9 PM Tonight

We Must Update All Monthly Subscribers Due to Service Shutdown

I awoke Saturday morning to alarming news – YourPatriot, which has handled the bulk of our online donations since 2007, has without warning announced, “Patriot will be closing down for an undermined length of time due to issues with the banking systems with which we are integrated. We are sorry to see things come to a halt so suddenly, as we have enjoyed servicing all of you over the years…”

The biggest concern for us is that nearly half of our operating budget comes in the form of recurring donations like yours.

Fortunately, we have a quick fix in the form of PayPal – click here.


IMPORTANT: please note that we discovered that the recurring option will not work over your phone. So you will need to use a laptop or desktop to make a recurring payment. Contact the Vanguard if you need assistance. We learned this late last night and we will have to follow up with a host of donors in a month to set them up as recurring donors.

Finally, I would point out that we only get about half our expenses via recurring payments – so if you can afford at least $5 or $10 per month, and want to become one, please log on to PayPal and become a subscriber today!
