Thanks to generous support from our many member-listeners, HPPR was able to meet its year-end contribution drive goal of $50,000. Because of this community support, HPPR will begin 2014 with confidence and be better prepared for the year ahead.
Private support like that which was raised last month, helps HPPR to lessen the gap left from steadily increasing cuts in funding from the state of Kansas and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
In the past, HPPR has covered the cost of this gap in funding by cutting down on staff and rearranging operations. However, by coming together, listener-members have demonstrated that the High Plains as a region can keep HPPR on budget and ensure the strength of our programming and service through increased private support, like membership contributions.
If you intended to make a contribution but were out of town for the holidays or didn't have an opportunity, please take a moment to support (here). Your contribution is very much appreciated.
Thank you once again to all those who made a contribution during our year-end campaign, and all the best in the coming year.
