Journalism needs individual philanthropic support.
Michigan Radio/NPR is thankful for the support they receive from the many people in Michigan from coast to coast who count on and care about the news and programming we provide. Gifts of any size from our growing audience on-air and online help fulfill our mission to create a more informed public.

Become a Donor
Michigan Radio’s donors are essential. By giving monthly, you can sustain the local, independent journalism you and so many others rely on.
An endowment is a permanent fund in which your gift is invested in perpetuity, while quarterly distributions provide a steady, reliable source of financial support to the station.
Endowment protects the future of Michigan Radio. Investment in securities creates a sustainable funding source, helping to ensure Michigan communities always have access to reliable news and information.
Growing our endowment produces permanent resources for innovative programs, continuing education in journalism, and advances in media technology. It provides flexible funding to create new regional bureaus as well as offers competitive salaries that attract and retain the best journalists. The fund also allows us to make future improvements to facilities and other infrastructure.For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities, Stocks, and Bonds
Gifts of stock are a great way to support the station. You can even use securities to make your annual gift to the station.
In most cases you will be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift and will not have to report capital gain income.
All transfers are handled by the University of Michigan’s Treasurer’s Office. Follow this link and please indicate the gift is for Michigan Radio.
For assistance with the transfer, email us at email@example.com.
Estate and planned gifts allow a donor to leave money or assets upon his or her death. Giving through your will or trust offers a way to support Michigan Radio's mission while meeting your current financial needs.
