Why I Give

NPR and Member stations are so grateful to the donors who make our work possible. We rely on generous supporters to accomplish our shared mission of creating a more informed public – one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures. Philanthropic and volunteer support is crucial to sustaining the personally resonant storytelling, fact-based reporting and in-depth news coverage that have become staples of our work.

Our donors tell us every day how passionate they are about supporting public radio and how deeply they believe in our work. We're excited to share testimonials from a few of these generous supporters.
