  1. I'm trying to sign up to be a Philhellene, however I would prefer not to have monthly withdrawals. Is it possible to make one payment each year?

    1. Hey Louise, Thank you so much for your interest in supporting THOAG! I can't tell you how appreciative I am. I'm not sure that you can do a yearly payment on Patreon, but you can always just donate to my Paypay ( whenever you so please. Others have chosen that route for that exact reason as well!
