Will my Smarty Pass subscription replace my sustaining gift to Brains On?
No, a Smarty Pass subscription and sustaining gift are separate. Sustaining gifts are tax-deductible donations and these philanthropic donations remain a critical source of funding to create the shows of the Brains On! Universe and to offer them free for everyone – always.
Smarty Pass is a way to pay for bonus episodes of our kids shows and subscribe to an ad-free feed. These payments are not tax deductible.
You can do either, or both! Click here to give a tax-deductible donation of any amount and scroll back to the top of this page to sign up for Smarty Pass!
