Program Sponsors and Foundation Support


HPR is truly locally managed and locally funded, a critical function of our independence. Aside from the individuals who contribute 65% of HPR’s operating funds, the single outstanding group of HPR supporters are the program sponsors (underwriters) and foundations who support the programming and station operations not only with financial generosity but choose to affiliate their names with the public radio community. Together they make up 25% of HPR’s support, and we are very grateful to every one of them. For information on becoming a program sponsor, contact Cat Gelman Corporate Relations Director at phone: 808-955-8821, email:
