Over 35,000 Members of Milwaukee PBS share the desire to support quality, diverse programs seen throughout southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

Our children develop strong building blocks from beloved programs such as Sesame Street and Curious George, while adults enjoy entertainment of Austin City Limits and Masterpiece and engaging programs about current events such as Frontline and PBS Newshour.

Your support as a member makes it possible for these and other fine programs to remain available to our community. Make a gift today!

When including Milwaukee PBS in your donation, please use the designation "Milwaukee PBS Fund." All contributions to support Milwaukee PBS are administered by Milwaukee PBS's Development Department and are deposited solely for use by Milwaukee PBS in the Milwaukee PBS Fund within the MATC Foundation, a not-for-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3).

The privileges of being a member are infinite. In addition to investing in the programming offered to our community, we keep you informed and up to date with Fine Tuning Magazine, a monthly guide of all channel offerings mailed directly to your home.

In addition, only members receive exclusive discounts to special events, timely updates and access to ON DEMAND program viewing with Milwaukee PBS Passport.
