Membership Drive

Pledge Drive Light: all of the funding, none of the program interruptions.

VPR’s membership drive is underway right now – but you won't miss a minute of your favorite programs. We’re calling it “Pledge Drive Light” - all of the funding with none of the long program interruptions. 

Earlier this year, you challenged VPR to try fundraising with fewer program interruptions. More importantly, you pitched in and made it a reality – thousands of supporters helped whittle what in the past has been up to 20 days of traditional on-air fundraising down to just 3.5 days so far this year by responding to brief reminders that didn’t preempt programs.

Membership Drive FAQ

Everything you ever wanted to know about VPR's membership drives, but were afraid to ask!

Update for June 15: Thank you! VPR met its June 2015 membership drive goal of $325,000 early Saturday morning, after just three days and two hours of traditional pledge drive fundraising. It was one of the shortest drives in VPR history. More than 3,000 listeners contributed to the effort.

Update for 3/18/15: We did it! No, YOU did it! We met our goal of $350,000 on Tuesday, March 17, seven hours before the deadline. The drive was supposed to start today, but instead you’re hearing regularly scheduled programming. Thank you for making this experiment in less-disruptive fundraising an incredible success!

We'd love to know what our listeners thought of this campaign. Please take our survey and let us know!

The goal for VPR's December Membership Drive is $350,000. VPR's programming and services are broad and diverse, but their common thread is you. Your financial support has had a real and powerful impact, making Vermont Public Radio an incredible resource for the entire region.

Please make a difference with a year-end gift to VPR today. And be sure to check back here throughout the drive for updates.

What if you could support your public radio station and fight hunger in Vermont at the same time?

Well, now you can. Vermont Public Radio has joined forces with the Vermont Foodbank and Hannaford Supermarkets to help our neighbors in need of food assistance. 

For every gift to VPR during our September Membership Drive, Hannaford Supermarkets will donate 10 meals to the Vermont Foodbank.

Monday is Pet Day today for VPR’s membership drive! We’re asking you to tell us about your pet when you make a contribution to VPR today.

VPR’s membership drive is off to a great start, with nearly $100,000 raised so far.

If you love Vermont and food (and who doesn’t?) and haven’t made your contribution to VPR yet, you’ll want to do it now to be entered into two exciting prize drawings happening tonight and tomorrow morning.

VPR's June Membership Drive is June 10-21 with a goal to raise $325,000, which helps pay for all of the news, music, and conversation you rely on. I hope you'll join VPR or renew your membership today, and check back here throughout the drive for updates.

Update for Saturday, June 21, 12:26 p.m.
