Join the Leadership Circle

Every successful charitable organization depends on a core of faithful patrons whose commitment surpasses that of the customary gift. At Alaska Public Media, the Leadership Circle is that core. Leadership Circle members are individuals, couples, families and businesses who have the vision and desire to support Alaska Public Media in a way that substantially impacts the future of our mission to serve.

Alaska Public Media’s generous Leadership Circle donors, giving $1,000 or more annually, make possible the independent journalism and engaging programming Alaskans rely on. It also supports our Educational Outreach in the community. We recognize donors who make significant contributions to Alaska Public Media in our giving circles, where donors receive exclusive benefits, updates and invitations to behind-the-scenes events.
