NPR and NPR Member stations are thankful for the support they receive from the many people across the country who count on and care about the news and programming we provide. Gifts of any size from our growing audience on-air and online help both NPR and Member stations fulfill our shared mission to create a more informed public.
How to Give to Your Member Station
Member stations are the lifeblood of NPR. They share our mission to create a more informed public, one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures. Member stations remain locally owned and operated community institutions, providing locally relevant news, information and cultural programming. They are a unique and increasingly valuable asset to their communities and, as importantly, a significant editorial resource to NPR. Together, NPR and Member stations are reaching an audience of millions each week — but not without your generous support. Click here to find and support your local Member station.
How to Give to NPR
Gifts can be designated! NPR appreciates general support which may be used where it is needed most. You may also restrict your gift to a specific area of interest such as coverage of international news, science, arts and culture, NPR Music, etc.

Some donors elect to ensure the vitality of NPR far into the future by including NPR in their estate planning. These donors make a valuable contribution to supporting the mission of NPR and our Member stations while reaping the benefits of federal and state tax laws that may allow reduction of income, lower gift and estate taxes, or provide additional income during the donor's lifetime.
If you are considering including a gift to NPR in your estate planning, please consult your financial advisor. Or contact the Office of Planned Giving, with any questions at 202-513-2097 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
You can also get more information on planned giving on the local level by searching for your Member station.
