Passport Consumers - Making the Case for Philanthropic Support

Wednesday, October 28 at Noon EDT

In this roundtable discussion we will address the challenge of Passport Subscribers – members who donate to your station for the express purpose of accessing and consuming your on-demand library of their favorite PBS programs. We will examine the impact Passport has on membership files and explore new avenues for building a meaningful case for support that will work to convert these viewers into long-term, dedicated members over time.

Participants will be asked to complete a pre-session survey and to share their insights with the group during this one-hour workshop. Seats are limited to 12 spots to help foster a meaningful discussion. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to exchange ideas directly with your peers!

Note: This session is tailored specifically for television stations.
