Contributions from individuals across the High Plains and beyond are the largest source of support for HPPR. Their annual giving enables HPPR to provide all citizens of the region with public radio service and online resources that are in touch with the world and at home on the High Plains. We invite you to join as a new member, renew your membership or make an additional gift by contributing now on-line.
Your contribution amount is up to you. You might think of your annual contribution in terms of how much you feel public radio service is worth to you and your community on a daily or monthly basis:
- $60 = 16 cents per day or $5 per month
- $120 = 33 cents per day or $10 per month
- $180 = 49 cents per day or $15 per month
- $240 = 66 cents per day or $20 per month
Individuals also support HPPR at higher levels. Such support is essential to HPPR, given the relatively sparse population of the region and the high costs of providing service over such a large area. These levels of support provide the critical margin that makes service possible and offer special benefits including Day Sponsorship:
- $240 - $499: HPPR Sponsor
- $500 - $999: HPPR Partner (one Day Sponsorship)
- $1,000 - $2,499: HPPR Pioneer (two Day Sponsorships and other benefits)
- $2,500 - $4,999: HPPR Groundbreaker (four Day Sponsorships and other benefits)
- $5,000 - $9,999: HPPR Trailblazer (eight Day Sponsorships and other benefits)
- $10,000+: HPPR Explorer (12 Day Sponsorships and other benefits)
