How Can I Support NPM?

Did you know that Native Americans are among the least connected in the world? When your community is so remote that you don't have paved roads; when you don't have access to plain old telephone service in your home; when you don't have access to broadband in your community; and when only 1 in 3 families in your community have access to telephone services, terrestrial radio becomes a lifeline.

Native Public Media’s core function is ongoing and proactive services within Native Communities. We work to facilitate a world in which all Native Americans have access to information through media. Native Public Media helps build a strong and healthy information ecology for Native Americans by training community members for radio and new media platforms— including digital communications that are informative, transformational, entertaining, and educational.

Donate to the NPM Scholarship

In 2012, Native Public Media launched its Communications Scholarship Fund for Native Americans and is working to grow the Fund at this time. Established in partnership with the Arizona Community Foundation, the Fund will provide scholarships to Native American students who seek to utilize technology in their chosen field of study to advance Native American communities. Funds will also be used to support specific research projects exploring innovative uses of technology to promote healthy, engaged, independent Native communities. The scholarships will be available to any enrolled member of a federally-recognized Indian tribe, and will not be limited to any particular state or region.

Write Congress

If you value public broadcasting, tell Congress how much you enjoy listening to Native radio locally or via a web stream.

Hundreds of listeners tune into our radio services for authentic and unique Native American programming that can only be found on the Native radio network. Our stations promote arts and culture, work closely to support local institutions, such as schools and health care centers, and other local community centers, and provide programming that is local and relevant to Tribal communities. From education to public affairs to arts and culture, our Native radio network makes a positive impact on our community each and every day. If federal funding is significantly reduced or eliminated, it will undercut these efforts and result in a loss of programs and services. Radio service to communities located in some of the most rural and isolated places in the U.S. are the worthiest places to invest federal dollars. We hope you will call your Member of Congress (click here to find your Senator or Representative) and tell them you support public broadcasting and in particular Native public radio stations. You can also show your support by visiting 170millionamericans.org and sign up and receive updates.

Let your voice be heard and counted. We are counting on you.
