Advancing Philanthropy at TPR

When B.J. McClain, founding member of KPAC, asked listeners to consider  giving “$1 a day”, our community responded.  The launch of The McClain Circle in 1993 helped TPR develop a loyal, member support group at significant giving levels, beginning at $365 annually.   Over two decades later, a healthy roster of 1500+ McClain Circle members signifies a fitting legacy to B. J. and her fellow founders!

While the McClain Circle continues to grow, so have the needs of our burgeoning organization.  Texas Public Radio is maturing into its name by now claiming five radio stations in the TPR family, with a sixth coming on-line soon.  The media landscape is changing dramatically to include a myriad of new methods of content distribution.  And, the need to develop local content is continuing to increase in order for the organization to remain relevant as it fulfills on its mission.  In order to continue providing the funding base required to broaden our programming streams and services, we have developed new levels of giving.

As we look to the future, we now offer the Silver, Gold and Platinum Circles of engagement, along with the newly formed President’s Council. These levels of increased support are proving necessary to help us meet today’s financial challenges, but more importantly, they allow generous, public spirited individuals like you to partner with Texas Public Radio in making a significant contribution to our community.

Silver Circle - $730 (just $2 per day):

  • Invitation to the annual Pinnacle Dinner

Gold Circle - $1,200:

  • Gift Membership
  • Invitation to the annual Pinnacle Dinner

Platinum Circle - $2,400:

Sustaining Memberships:

This new program allows you to support radio that matters with your ongoing monthly gift from your credit card.  It auto-renews each year, and helps eliminate renewal mailings or lapses in your membership.  Sustaining Membership also allows you to plan for a monthly gift, making support easier to fit within your budget.  You let us know when you wish to discontinue your monthly payments. To enroll in this program, please call our Membership Department at (210) 614-8977.

Thank You Gifts:

When you join Texas Public Radio or renew your existing membership, we will say “Thank You” with some special gifts.

TPR Presents:

Our periodic member event series, TPR Presents, often spotlights local arts organizations or features exclusive access to performances and exhibits.  Members call the Texas Public Radio office (210-614-8977) during regular business hours to make reservations. Attendance to the events is free to members and open to non-members for a suggested donation. Space is limited, and reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

Previous events included:       

  • "TPR Presents: Itinerarios" took members on a musical journey through Central and South America.  From villancicos of the 16th and 17th centuries, to guitar classics from modern masters, to songs of the mariachi, members were entertained and enlightened by the experience.
  • “TPR Presents: Dvorak” was held in conjunction with The San Antonio Symphony’s Dvorak Festival. Alamo Arts Ballet danced to songs of Dvorak, followed performances from YOSA and the Children's Chorus of San Antonio.
