'Tis the Season to Support VPM!

The end of the year is a great time to donate and squeeze in those last minute tax write-offs. The CARES Act — several provisions of which were extended into 2021 — offers additional incentives, including special tax deduction of up to $300 for non-itemizers ($600 for joint filers) for cash donations made to qualifying charitable organizations. Also included is a temporary increase in the charitable contribution limits for itemizers — up to 100% of their AGI. Show your love for VPM before the year ends!

Become a Sustaining Member
Every little bit helps! A sustaining donation of just $5 per month supports VPM programming and gives you access to VPM Passport, where you can stream your favorite VPM and PBS programs anytime, any place.

Make a One-Time Donation
How much do you value VPM? Our programming comes to you at no charge, but without community support our work is not possible. Consider a one-time gift to show your support for those programs that mean the most to YOU!

Donate a Vehicle*
Have a vehicle you no longer use? Want to clear some space in your garage or driveway? You can donate a variety of vehicles to benefit VPM—cars, trucks, trailers, motorcycles, boats and more!

Day Sponsorship
With a donation of $365 or more, you can honor a friend, colleague, loved one or special occasion on any day of your choice (pending availability) with a special radio message that will air six times over the course of the day.

Legacy Giving*
Whatever your stage in life, it’s good to think about and plan for how your affairs will be handled. There are many donor-friendly options available, some of which are better for income planning during your lifetime and some of which are better for planning for after your death, including wills and bequests, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and charitable IRA rollovers. Help ensure the best of public media for generations to come by including VPM in your will, trust, or other estate plans.

Host a Facebook Fundraiser*
Are you on Facebook? Want to encourage your friends to support VPM? Make a Facebook Fundraiser and tell your friends why VPM is important to you. Just click the link for a pre-filled fundraiser form to share on Facebook.

We understand this has been a difficult year for many. If you can’t give right now, you can still support VPM by joining our community conversations on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, by subscribing to our weekly eNews, watching VPM channels and listening to VPM News and VPM Music

*Please note: these options do not qualify for the CARES Act $300 tax deduction.
