PBS delivers big return for a small investment
Strong communities are the foundation of a strong country. And PBS builds communities every day. Our programs are free to everyone with a television set, and most of our funding comes from local viewers. So even if our living rooms are far apart, when we watch PBS, we’re growing – together.
That’s why we ask you to do your part. We need your financial support to keep this service independent and commercial free.
Without your support, imagine what would be lost: you’d lose the shows that expanded your mind as a child, the documentaries that opened up new worlds that you as a student, the non-commerical PBS news programs that keep you informed on world events and cultures and exposure the worlds of music, theatre, dance and art.
Also, we rely on lots of volunteers – and voluntary financial contributions. Most of our budget comes from individuals who enjoy our programs – in other words, people like you and me. When we invest in PBS, we’re also helping bring programs to our neighbors who may not be able to contribute. PBS is here for all Americans, every child and every adult, every day.
