How do I change/cancel my recurring donation?

I would like to donate to Aeon. Are there any benefits?
Our Aeon Media donations programme offers two options – one-time donations or recurring donations. Rather than offering dedicated benefits to donors, we decided it was kinder to offer full functionality to all readers of Aeon or Psyche who have a user account. These include the ability to comment on articles and save articles for later. Log in to your account here. If you are unable to use these functions when signed in, please contact us via the interactive guide above.

What does it mean to be a Patron?
Patrons are individuals who generously support Aeon Media Group with donations above $500 (US). We also welcome employer-matched donations and grants through donor-advised funds and have many donors who choose to give this way. We look forward to hearing from you. If you would like to ask about these options, please contact
