YOU Can Cut VPR's Membership Drive In Half!

Nicole Spiridakis for NPR
Membership drives – they’re as American as apple pie.

But unlike pie, we know you could do with less on-air fundraising. That’s why we’re giving you the power to slice VPR’s membership drive in half.

When you help VPR raise $245,000 by June 18, we’ll cut the drive in half to just five days!

You count on VPR to bring you the latest news, the best storytelling, the context around complicated issues, and much more. A shorter membership drive will mean more of the programming you count on – election coverage, live musical performances, and weekend favorites like the new season of Radiolab, The Splendid Table, and A Prairie Home Companion.

We’ve never tried this before, so we’re taking a leap of faith that you’ll come through for VPR and make this shorter drive a reality.

Need more incentive to make a contribution early? We’re holding several prize drawings before the drive begins. The sooner you pledge, the more chances you have to win some fun prizes, including a $1,500 gift certificate to Gardener’s Supply, an iPad from Small Dog Electronics, a $1,000 gift certificate to Northshire Bookstore, and many more. (Sustaining members – you are already included in these drawings, but there are other ways you can help!)

We hope you’ll make a gift online today, or by calling 1-800-639-6391. Thank you so much in advance for your support.
