Support Us

Vermont Public is proud to be a non-profit, community-funded organization. More than 90% of Vermont Public's funding comes from our local community via individual memberships and philanthropic giving as well as businesses and organizations.

Our community-supported business model allows Vermont Public to provide free access to fact-driven journalism. That support means that editorial independence is built in from the start. We are accountable only to you. Member support lets Vermont Public report without fear or favor.

But our mission goes beyond just the news. We also believe in the power of high-quality entertainment and music to inspire, educate and bring people together. Your support helps produce engaging programs that spark curiosity, foster understanding, and create shared cultural experiences.

Public media is free for anyone to use and enjoy. Together, we can ensure that everyone in our community has access to the information and entertainment they deserve.

For Vermont Public


Our primary source of funding — over half!— comes from more than 40,000 members making donations in all amounts. Contributions from individual listeners like you keep Vermont Public strong and independent, and are a vital source of funding for our programs.

A donation in any amount makes you a member of Vermont Public, but we suggest a base donation of $60 a year. That giving level will grant you access to Vermont Public Passport, one of our favorite member benefits!

Become a member today by making a gift online, by calling 802-654-3665, or by mailing a check to:

Sustaining Membership
A Sustaining Membership is a monthly gift that you pay in a convenient, ongoing way. Each month, your gift will be automatically transferred from your bank account, credit card or debit card in the amount of your choice.
Your Sustaining Membership will automatically continue unless you choose to cancel or change it.

You can increase, decrease or stop your donation at any time by emailing us at or by calling 802-654-3665.

Sustainers are crucial to providing an ongoing base of community support that we can rely on, so you can continue to rely on Vermont Public. Your automatic monthly contribution is easy and convenient for you, provides reliable support for the services you count on and reduces on-air fundraising.
