Create a world of possibilities and sustain BPR this month

Map with sunglasses, toy plane, passports, and blue text

Community support from individuals like you and regional business sponsors is Blue Ridge Public Radio’s largest and most reliable source of funding – 90 percent, in fact.

You count on BPR, and BPR counts on you.

BPR’s Fall Fund Drive kicks off Monday, September 18, with exciting prizes and experiences to win, and new thank you gifts and donor benefits, detailed below.

Now’s the time to get a head start on supporting BPR as a Sustainer -- donors who give $5 or more each month through their bank account or credit card. As special thanks for their support, BPR Sustainers are automatically entered in all of BPR’s prize drawings. 

Ongoing monthly donations are a reliable source of funding for BPR and help this community-funded station deliver the news and music you depend on. It’s also easy and convenient for you – no renewals to keep up with and nothing to mail back to us.

If you’re a current Sustainer, this is an excellent time to update your credit card information or increase your giving amount.

Blue Ridge Public Radio is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is tax-deductible (Federal Tax ID #58-1445328).

Enjoy a fresh slate of donor thank you gifts and benefits
