Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of OPB’s Cornerstone Society

In 1989, a group of dedicated OPB supporters committed to making a difference. Each donor contributed a gift of $1,000 or more -- unprecedented in public broadcasting at the time -- to help establish OPB’s Cornerstone Society. It was a bold investment at a critical phase in our development.

Since then, OPB has gone on to produce award-winning programs and content services for our television, radio, and online audiences. We’ve tripled our newsroom and developed some of our most successful local programs in public media: Oregon Field Guide, Oregon Art Beat, Oregon Experience, Think Out Loud and State of Wonder. Over these 25 years, the Cornerstone Society has steadily grown, contributing around $2.8 million annually, helping to fuel OPB’s impressive development.

And yet, there is still much more to do. Traditional media sources have contracted, resulting in reduced coverage of important regional issues. While federal funding continues to face an uncertain future. In this challenging environment, OPB’s work is needed more than ever before.

Join us! 

In recognition of this milestone, and to energize continued Cornerstone Society growth, we are announcing a special $100,000 giving challenge. From now through the end of 2014, become a new member of the Cornerstone Society and your gift will be matched one-to-one by the 25th Anniversary Challenge Fund. This challenge, supported by the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation and others, will help us grow this important source of support and enable OPB to stay strong in a changing media environment.

Please join us. Together we can ensure that OPB serves the next generation of viewers, listeners, and citizens. If you are interested in supporting this fund, please contact Meghan Milinski at 503.445.1856. Or, click here to make your gift today.

Special privileges are offered to Cornerstone and President's Council members to enhance their enjoyment of, and connection to, OPB.
