Membership Drive

We’re working hard to turn the page on nearly 40 years of traditional on-air fundraising … You know, when we interrupt programming for several days to remind you that listener support is essential to VPR’s service?

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.

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

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.
