Now more than ever, your support is essential.

Now more than ever, our community needs access to trustworthy news and information. And now more than ever, VPR needs your investment to keep this essential service strong. Be one of 5,000 listeners to join us with a gift during our December membership drive and add your voice to civil dialogue in our community.Update 9:00 a.m. 12/16/19: Thank you to the 4,676 generous listeners who supported VPR during our December drive! We came up just 324 gifts short of our overall goal. If you haven't had the chance to chip in yet, there's still time to get involved - make a gift today!

Original Post: Now more than ever, local news needs your support. Make a year-end contribution now.

We’re at an unprecedented moment in time: there’s more information coming at us than ever before, and at the same time, it’s becoming harder and harder to distinguish fact from fiction.

Now more than ever, our democracy depends on journalism with integrity and independence. As your public radio station, we are committed to making sure everyone in our community has free access to facts, analysis and context each day, so you feel connected to community and empowered to make our community and world a better place. 

This kind of coverage comes with a cost. 

More than 90 percent of VPR’s funding comes from our local community. If you're able to make a year-end contribution to support our work, please do it here. Your gift will keep the reporters, editors and fact-checkers, working to bring the news to you as it unfolds, and it will preserve free access to news you can trust.

New Swag!
