Cornerstone Society

The Cornerstone Society was created to honor our donors who make annual gifts at the leadership level.  Your decision to make a philanthropic investment in NEPR can have a powerful impact.  An investment at the highest levels ensures the highest quality programming and NEPR’s continued ability to meet the needs of and to strengthen our listening community.

For those who can support NEPR with a gift of $1,000 or more, we invite you to join the Cornerstone Society.  Cornerstone Society donors are a visionary group of listeners who place a high value on the essential public service NEPR provides to the community: Independent, non-commercial news, music and conversation.  We are deeply grateful to these donors for their generosity and commitment to NEPR’s mission.

If you’re interested in participating in our planned giving program, you can find more information here
