private support

As you reflect on the services you’ve counted on most in 2014, consider the hours you've spent listening to HPPR and make a tax-deductible gift of support to reaffirm the value of having public radio in your community.  Just click the red "SUPPORT" button above.  Or, if you prefer, call us now at 800-678-7444 to make your year-end contribution over the phone. 

There are currently about 43 individuals who make annual contributions of $1,000 a year or more to HPPR – some as high as $10,000 in some years.  These are individuals who give an “extra share” above and beyond supporting their own listening.  They’re also supporting the educational, cultural and civic service HPPR provides in their community and across the wider High Plains region.

Amid all the debate over shrinking government, cutting funding and reducing deficits, support for HPPR is one area where there’s been action and real consequences.  HPPR’s funding from the State of Kansas has been cut by 78% from its peak level.  And support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting has declined 27% since 2010.  That’s left a large budget gap that you can help cover with your end-of-year private contribution.  Contribute now by clicking the red “SUPPORT HPPR” button above or respond by mail to a letter you may have received from HPPR by December 31st to claim the tax deduction this year.
