Individual Giving

NPR and NPR Member Stations are thankful for support from the many people across the country who count on and care about the news and programming we provide. Gifts of all sizes from our growing audience on-air and online help us fulfill our mission "to create a more informed public—one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding of events, ideas and cultures."

Gifts can be designated as general support to be directed where it is needed most, or targeted to specific areas of a donor's interest such as coverage of international news, science, arts and culture, or the NPR Internship Program. Gifts support the NPR Foundation, which was founded to raise and administer funds that protect our long-term financial security.

Estate Planning
Some donors elect to ensure the vitality of NPR far into the future by including NPR in their estate planning. These donors make a valuable contribution to supporting the mission of NPR and our Member Stations while taking advantage of federal and state tax laws that may allow reduction of income taxes, lower gift and estate taxes, or provide income during the donor's lifetime. If you are considering including a gift to NPR in your estate planning, please consult your financial advisor or contact our office at 202-513-2097 or email giftplanning(at) with any questions.

Employer Gift Matching
Many employers offer matching gift programs that will double or even triple a donation's value. Please check with your company to find out if your company will match your gift to NPR. Contact NPR Gift Processing office at giving(at) with questions.

Combined Federal Campaign
Employees of the U.S Government can also support NPR through the Combined Federal Campaign, which seeks to promote and support philanthropy among federal civilian, postal and military donors.
