Planned Giving

After over 37 years of service to the High Plains, there's now a whole generation of "backseat listeners" who grew up listening to HPPR from their childhood car seats and now continue to have public radio as part of their life. Making a planned gift to HPPR will ensure that public radio continues to be part of the quality of life in your community and across the High Plains for generations to come.

Your bequest can leave your community a legacy of in-depth news and information, timeless music, intelligent discussion, civil dialogue, and curious inquiry about the wider world. And it will be a legacy that reaches residents at home, at work, on the road and in the fields, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for years to come.

If you'd like to discuss planned giving to HPPR, please contact Deb Oyler, Executive Director, at 800-678-7444 or She'd be happy to talk with you, or with your attorney or financial advisor. 

There are many opportunities for designating your planned gift in a way that will leave a lasting legacy of public radio service to your community and the High Plains region. Possibilities include:

  • Signal service to your community
  • Awareness of public radio in your community
  • Regionally focused programming
  • National programming acquisition
  • Web and smartphone service from the High Plains to the world
  • Greatest needs of the future through the Board Designated Reserve Fund
  • Perpetual support of general operations through HPPR's Permanent Endowment
