Ever since we launched our new membership program earlier this year, members have been asking whether there's an easy way to give Pando memberships to colleagues and friends. 

Until today, the answer to that question was "uh... well... you could... maybe... I guess... if...". Today the answer becomes a resounding "yes!"

If you'd like to buy the gift of an annual Pando membership for a colleague, friend, or anyone else you like, just go right here and tell us the relevant info.  (You can buy up to five gift memberships using that form. For more than that, email

Gift memberships offer all of the same benefits as regular memberships: Full access to our reporting, and content archive; streaming video of previous events and... yep... even free admission to this Thursday's PandoMonthly interview with Sequoia and DoorDash. And, like regular memberships, every single gift member helps us get closer to the 5,000 paying subscriber target we need to hit for our newsroom become fully supported by readers, not advertisers. 

The only difference is that, unlike regular memberships, gift memberships don't automatically rebill. You'll be charged a one-time fee of $100 for an annual memberhip, which you can send to anyone you like. This time next year, we'll send you a note inviting you to renew the membership, but there's absolutely no obligation. If you don't renew, the membership will just expire, giving the recipient the chance to renew it themselves.
