Support HPR

Hawaiʻi Public Radio is an independent, locally-operated organization that receives 93% of its funding from individuals, businesses, foundations, and community organizations here in our Islands.

We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

In November 2015, we’re proud to have received our fourth consecutive 4-star rating (the highest possible) from the national Charity Navigator

Here are some of the ways you can support HPR.



Become A Member

Contributions from individual members make up a significant portion of the funding which makes possible the programs and services our listeners have come to rely on.

Join our growing corps of Sustaining Members and your monthly donation is automatically deducted, reduces the station’s administrative costs, and shortens pledge drives.  Read more about sustaining membership.
