WAYS TO GIVE

There are many ways you can make a campaign gift that makes an impact and is meaningful to you. We recognize that each donor’s financial situation is unique.

To discuss making a gift to our campaign, please contact campaign manager Dawn Flinsch at 651.290.1122 or dflinsch@mpr.org.

Here are some ways donors are constructing their campaign gift commitments.

OUTRIGHT GIFTS

Current gifts will help accelerate our strategic plan to reach and serve more people with valued and relevant service, making it possible for us to invest in our campaign priorities immediately. A gift can be paid in annual installments over three to five years. You spread out the payments to suit your budget and provide valuable resources to fuel our work in the time when it will have the greatest benefit.

IRA DISTRIBUTION

If you are at least 70½ years old, you can ask your IRA administrator to make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA directly to Minnesota Public Radio. Learn more »
