Nope! While the MaxFunDrive is the best time of year to start a monthly membership, you can join or upgrade at any time! If you aren't in a place to contribute this month but get an unexpected raise next month, MaxFun (and your favorite hosts) would be so thankful to you for beginning your monthly membership whenever you are ready to do so! You'll still gain access to the bonus content if you contribute at the $5 monthly level or above, and you'll still get a physical gift if you start at the $10 monthly level or above - though it will be different from our limited-edition MaxFunDrive gifts.
