We’re excited to announce that the Susan Howarth Foundation has issued Arkansas PBS an exciting challenge: if we gain 3,000 new members in 100 days, Arkansas PBS will receive $20,000 for programming expenses!

Why does showing your love and becoming a champion for Arkansas PBS matter? When you join the Arkansas PBS Family as a member, you’re not just helping us reach an exciting goal. You’re also showing others that the work and programming Arkansas PBS does and shares matters, and you’re giving an invaluable gift to our state.

Supporting Arkansas PBS has ripple effects across The Natural State, helping to support local and national programs, classroom initiatives, education projects and so much more. Your gift can also have some great perks for you! In addition to helping support the programs that you already love, you can choose an Arkansas PBS Passport membership at $5 or more per month or a one-time donation of $60 or more per year, andyou'll get extended on-demand access to a rich library of public television programming.

From Arkansas PBS originals to special extended (or even early!) access to PBS favorites, Arkansas PBS Passport is your link to special online, mobile and streaming TV viewing. This month, Arkansas PBS Passport features special access to all of “Masterpiece PBS: Beecham House,” “Modus: Season 2” and a highlight reel of recently aired favorites, including “Expedition With Steve Backshall.”

Help us take a step towards meeting our goal now! Become a member now through June 7 at
