UPDATE 4/16/18, 9:30 a.m.: This past weekend, loyal and committed HPR listeners contributed nearly $10,000 online to bring us closer to our goal. We encourage those who had planned to give in the final two hours of the on-air drive on Friday or who are moved to do so today to pledge online now. Contributions from first-time donors, renewing members, Sustaining upgrades, or additional gifts will all help to bring this Spring Fund Drive to a successful and speedy finish. Mahalo for your support.

 

Whew! The Spring 2018 Pledge Drive is a wrap...sort of. Suspended with $21k to go because of the Syrian strike.  If you want to still donate to HPR you can still do so on our website, and if you want the Bridging gifts, please say so in the comment section.

Thank you so much for your generous donations to keep this station afloat.  Thank you to the sustaining members who have brought us to this level... and thank you and welcome to all the new members who signed up this drive. We are nothing without you... literally.

Construction has begun on HPR’s new facility on Kulani Cone perched above Hilo on Hawai'i Island.  It will deliver a better signal for KANO (HPR-1) and finally bringing HPR-2 to East Hawaiʻi on KAHU.  

This long process involving fundraising, extensive lease negotiations, and transporting equipment through rain forests, is coming to an end.  Over the last few days, we’ve been removing the previous tenant’s equipment and bringing in our own.  If all goes well we should be on the air in a few weeks!

Thank you so much to everyone who pledged for my show during this Spring 2016 pledge drive!  The show was an incredible success and I couldn't have done it without your generous support!

Hawai‘i Public Radio’s Challenge 2016 spring fundraiser is on.  We have only 10 days to raise $961K and we can only do that with your help.
