How to Support BPR

The most convenient and reliable way to support BPR is by becoming a Sustaining Member, with monthly drafts of $5 or more taken out of your bank account or credit card.

Gifts of $10 or more (or $120+) can get you the BPR MemberCard, featuring 2-for-1 dining offers and discounts at favorite businesses around the region and throughout North Carolina.

For $15 or more per month (or $180+), receive a MemberCard and a BPR Day Sponsorship, an on air message to mark a personal celebration or to donate to your favorite area nonprofit.

Already a Sustaining Member? Increase your monthly gift. If a monthly gift doesn’t suite you, a one-time gift works great too.
