Keeping PBS Strong: Thank You to Our Donors

Gifts to the PBS Foundation help keep PBS strong and make outsized impact possible.

Public broadcasting has always been possible because of people like you: people who believe media, including – of course – television, should serve not just the interest of private companies, but the public interest – people who believe the best programming not only entertains but educates and inspires.

Over the past 50 years, generous donors have invested in what only PBS can provide: exceptional, accessible programming that touches hearts, opens minds, and strengthens our society. From inspiring documentaries and trusted news to educational kids’ programming and moving performances, our donors enable PBS to continue serving Americans with media of the highest quality.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the many individuals, foundations, and corporations whose generosity allows PBS to continue informing, inspiring, and entertaining audiences of all backgrounds, abilities, and ages in innovative ways.

Please join us in celebrating our donors. See our Fall 2023 Contributor newsletter, pages 8-10, for a list of those who gave gifts totaling $10,000 or more last year. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of this list, errors do sometimes occur. In that event, please notify us at pbsfoundation@pbs.org.

Thank you!
