Individual Donations

The most common way to show that support is to give an annual contribution to support the station's services.


Businesses support NCPR and get their name and message to the ears of a broad North Country audience by becoming a program underwriter.

Planned Giving

You can help the station continue to serve you and your neighbors by including North Country Public Radio in your philanthropic plans. We believe that radio can and should be directed to the greater good and that NCPR is an essential regional service-reaching out to North Country residents regardless of income, education, or occupation with programs that inspire, inform, teach and entertain. Donation to the NCPR Endowment helps project that service into the future.


You can also support NCPR with the most precious gift, your time. Volunteer to become a station sentinel.

*Licensee support adds another 6%; Federal funding provides 12%; another 3% comes from the New York State Education Department and 2% from Studio and other income. We rely on St. Lawrence University, foundation, and government sources to fund our facility, equipment, and personnel costs.
