Rhode Island Public Radio members come from all walks of life. Some live in Providence, others in Narragansett; some donate $60 and others $500. They have different interests and convictions and listen to RIPR and NPR for different reasons. But despite all this, RIPR members have one thing in common – they all support their local radio station!

Member contributions cover more than half of Rhode Island Public Radio’s operating expenses. Giving a tax-deductible contribution to RIPR is quick and easy:
