When we learn new things, our brains create new connections. As our brains create these new connections, they strengthen their ability to change and adapt to new experiences. In simple terms, new knowledge increases brain power. The more we connections we make, the stronger our brains become. 

VPM is dedicated to helping our community make new connections with regular programs like PBS NewsHourVPM News Focal Point and Washington Week, locally-produced documentaries like Why This Moment, How the Monuments Came Down and HEARD, interactive discussion series like Racism: Challenging Perceptions, special broadcasts of important political events, breaking news and more.


Make the most of your support for programs that keep our community informed.

Donate between Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 12 and our Commonwealth Circle and Patrons Circle members will match EVERY dollar you give in support of news and public affairs programming—up to a total of $15,000!
Help us reach our goal!
