Commonwealth Circle

Commonwealth Circle is a leadership giving program that recognizes supporters who make unrestricted gifts of $1,200 or more to support VPM’s annual operations funds. These partners help bring high-quality programming to communities across Virginia through PBS, NPR and local productions that educate, entertain, and inspire viewers and listeners. They help ensure that public media strengthens our local communities, empowers families and informs citizens.
