Your support makes a difference

Members play a vital role in continuing the excellent tradition of community supported broadcasting, it is the individual donations that are the lifeline of Lakeshore PBS and Lakeshore Public Radio.

Your support ensures that worthwhile programming that is family-friendly, educational and fosters the values of our community remain available to you and your neighbors. We work hard to find the best PBS and NPR programming and produce first-rate local shows to educate, enlighten, and inform our viewers. If you would like to see this kind of inspiring television and radio for years to come, please become a member today. We cannot do it without you!

You can become a member with either a one-time contribution or simplify your giving and become a Sustaining Member by choosing to make ongoing monthly gifts through bank transfer or automatic credit or debit card charges. Becoming a sustainer makes your gift even more affordable, and while $10, $15, or $20 a month may seem small, it all adds up to a big impact over time.

Many of our members also extend their support through workplace giving or matching gift programs where some companies will match, double or even triple your gift.
