Valley Public Radio Staff
Valley Public Radio's programming is made possible thanks to generous support of our community. Over 90 percent of the station's $1.5 million annual operating budget comes from membership donations, foundation partners, local corporate underwriters and station events. There's many ways that you can help support the station and the programming that you enjoy:
Your annual gift of support to FM89 is the station's biggest single source of funding. You can become a member with either an individual gift, an installment gift, or an automatically renewing continuing membership. For just pennies a day, you can make a big difference in keeping public radio strong in the Central Valley.
Your business can support Valley Public Radio by becoming a Corporate Partner. On-air messages are an effective way to introduce listeners to your products or services and build positive brand awareness as a company that is supportive of our community.
That vehicle sitting in your driveway could actually help keep your favorite public radio program on air. Thanks to the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program, it's an easy way to support the station and get a potential tax benefit as well.
Each gift to Valley Public Radio helps us expand our services to the local community. Legacy gifts come in a variety of forms and help provide for the continuation of national and local news content, classical music, and cultural arts programming. These gifts, while planned now, help ensure a public radio voice for the future.
Charity Navigator Four Star Rating
Valley Public Radio was awarded Charity Navigator's prestigious four-star rating in October 2012, the highest possible score. We're the only non-profit in the San Joaquin Valley to receive this designation which is based on independent analysis of the station's finances, transparency and accountability policies.
