Public Media Institute is raising funds at the end of a yearlong match campaign, and so far we have raised just over half the funds needed to get a $50,000 match from The Reva and David Logan Foundation. We need to raise the rest before November 1st or we forfeit the match.

SO: we’ve put together some great gifts to send you if you give at any level or become a recurring member.

Please donate before the deadline on November 1st, 2023 receive thank you gifts from your buddies at Public Media Institute.

**If you’re already a Patreon member, please switch from to this new Kindful app, or make a one time gift, and we’ll get you your swag in the mail soon!
