As 2022 winds to a close, Arkansas PBS extends heartfelt gratitude to all of those who made our work possible this year through your financial support. We don’t take your contributions lightly – they mean so much to us and to your viewing neighbors across the state, especially those who can’t afford to make a donation to our network. Your generosity makes a world of difference, especially in supporting our ability to bring you more Arkansas stories that you won’t see anywhere else.
One of our great joys here at Arkansas PBS is hearing why you give. Serving our audience is our northstar, and your comments (even when they are critical) serve as a guide for us. We hope you will enjoy the following feedback from viewers and donors across the Natural State:
“It is our pleasure to help keep Arkansas public television at its amazingly high level! Thank you all for your creativity, artistic vision and good stewardship. All work together to provide Arkansans with superior PBS! We are so grateful for what you do.” (Northwest Arkansas)
“Excellent program tonight! FRONTLINE has improved my understanding so many times over the years. One of many reasons I am a sustaining member of Arkansas PBS.” (North Little Rock)
“Watching PBS feeds my learning appetite by offering fare that is entertaining yet enlightening. The shows always give me something to look forward to, especially on Sunday evenings! Mysteries and historical fiction programs are my favorites. Documentary programs provide truly balanced views of issues both past and present. If it weren't for PBS, I would rarely turn on our television. With PBS I know there will be high quality content and delivery.” (Conway)
“Time to renew my support to Arkansas PBS. Good job on such shows and ‘Exploring Arkansas,’ ‘Victoria’ and ‘All Creatures Great and Small.’ Love being able to stream them online so we can watch at our leisure.” (Jonesboro)
“As poor as I am, PBS is worth every dime. Without PBS, many children – including me – wouldn’t have learned kindness, goodness, etc. It isn’t just a show – PBS is a teacher.” (Bella Vista)
“When I was little, my parents used to watch PBS with me. Now that I have a child, I want to watch the great shows on PBS with him!” (New Blaine)
“Arkansas PBS is a treasure!” (Hot Springs)
“I am a longtime contributor because I believe in your mission and appreciate all the wonderful programs. Thank you!!” (Rogers)
“I appreciate all that you do, trying to get us the programs that will help us keep us entertained and make us better citizens. I wish I could give you a lot more money but I live on social security.” (Pine Bluff)
“In today's often hostile media climate, solid and unbiased news sources can be hard to come by. My family and I have enjoyed many PBS shows over the years, and have consistently relied on PBS as a source of sound journalism. I am happy to give in order to support the continued excellence that is continually demonstrated on this network.” (Paragould)
“Best programming on TV!” (El Dorado)
“I want to support the station that provides 85-90% of my TV viewing enjoyment! Thank you for providing Masterpiece dramas and mysteries. They inspire me, keep my interest and keep me coming back for more! Please don't ever stop. Keep up the good work!” (Cabot)
