All The Funding In March, Skip The Drive In June

Apr 2, 2019

In our effort to bring you more news and music with less on-air fundraising, VPR is about to do something bold: when you help us meet our $425,000 goal during the month of March, we'll skip the drive in June.

Update 2:38 p.m. 4/2/19: Thanks to the 3,360 VPR listeners who made a gift during our March drive! We ended the campaign about $92,000 short of our overall goal. We weren't able to eliminate the June drive, but you've helped make it much shorter! Thank you again for supporting VPR.

That’s right! When we raise all the funds in March, it will eliminate the need for a membership drive in June! Your gift now gets us that much closer to our goal of raising $425,000 by March 31.

Contribute to VPR now to meet the goal in March and skip the drive in June.
