What is RTM’s membership program?
RTM is working towards being powered by members who support keeping our platform free and accessible to all, through our membership program. We ask our most active and committed users to contribute a small amount monthly to help improve and maintain our free site for people everywhere to create change.
What do contributions support?
Membership contributions are critical to helping us build the RTM platform as an important catalyst for change everywhere. Contributions help us build better free technology for people who want to start and sign petitions, and join movements for change. They also help us fund a small team of campaigners and communications staff who provide strategy advice, secure media coverage, and connect petition starters to the business and government leaders whose decisions impact their lives.
What do I receive as a member?
Members receive detailed monthly impact reports which include behind-the-scenes information on featured campaigns, interviews with petition starters, and a deeper look at that month’s victories. We might also send you RTM swag and other exclusive content to show our appreciation.
What is RTM’s business model?
We’re trying to build the most impactful platform for making the change that people anywhere can use — structuring ourselves as a technology start-up enables us to do that in the most effective way.
RTM is both certified and incorporated as a Benefit Corporation. Our certification means that we are held to high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency set by B Lab, an independent certifying group. Our incorporation means that RTM’s mission and commitment to empowering people everywhere is legally part of the company’s corporate charter.
Why do you need contributions?
Membership contributions enable us to be a sustainable business. Unlike many companies, RTM does not exist to make a profit — we exist to make an impact. All revenue we make is reinvested into the platform to help empower people to win their campaigns, every day. We’re one of a growing number of news and publishing websites that have membership programs so that they continue to provide people with information and other free services.

Can I cancel my membership?
