1962 to 2019, $10K to $20K

Posted on Dec 30, 2019

Jessica ... let's consider back nearly 58 years. Since 1962 Austin PBS has provided our community with a window to the world. Now almost six decades later, kindling the hearts and minds of our community remains our driving force.

Multiple generations have turned to this station and picked up fundamental skills, from how to make friends to how to roast a chicken. Artistic visionaries have sashayed and scrawled and sung their way across Austin PBS airwaves, transporting Central Texans from Broadway to the Sydney Opera House and everywhere in between. And in a continuous effort to do more and be better, we've helped our citizens confront and discuss issues ranging from assisting Austin's homeless population to grappling with America at war.

Austin PBS represents so much varied content and outreach, but it's perhaps best distilled as one idea: connection. Connection to Austin, to one another and to humans everywhere.

Members from Austin PBS's Leadership Circle have come together to celebrate the connection this station offers with a $10,000 year-end challenge! That means every dollar Austin PBS receives before the stroke of midnight on January 1 will go twice as far — that's a potential $20,000 boost to close out 2019!

Don't miss this final opportunity to give back to your only community-supported public television station while doubling your impact. And remember: these are the last hours to make your tax eligible donations for this year.
