IT IS POSSIBLE!  YAY! 

The only problem, it requires server customization not available on most inexpensive hosts.  If you don't have your own server, good luck. 

Anyway, the information you are looking for is called a cron task (command run on).  Give that a go in google.

If you have access to add events to the crontab on the server you are running your website on you can make is execute a stand alone php script once a month.

The crontab is normally located at /etc/crontab
