Hours to go until 2020!

Posted on Dec 31, 2019

It's the home stretch to 2020, a year which has always felt a bit impossible. So futuristic sounding, so far off. Yet here we are, about to welcome the third decade of our 21st century.

Over the years Austin PBS has had its own moments of feeling impossible, from ongoing threats to our federal funding to adapting to a digital world where our core medium of television was no longer enough. But no matter what the challenge, Austin PBS has continued to thrive, producing award-winning local programming, leading educational outreach with at-risk youth, developing a robust catalog of online content and remaining a free and trusted resource for every single Central Texan. It's only possible because of YOUR support.

As you ready the confetti and bubbly to toast a new year, make your year-end gift to Austin PBS at austinpbs.org/donate. These are the final hours to make an impact in 2019. Before you countdown to 2020, count up the reasons to contribute.

  1. Only gifts made before the stroke of midnight will be tax eligible for 2019.

  2. Austin PBS covers more than 20 viewing counties. Whether you live in Bastrop or Killeen, you have the best seat in the house with Austin PBS. We are your only community-supported public television station, connecting you to our community and the world. This media space is worth protecting.

  3. Make a gift of any amount before 2020 and we'll thank you with our Austin PBS Fan Kit full of new items!
