The Opportunity

We are transforming WBUR to serve the public in new and better ways.

We will make the most of these extraordinary times and equip WBUR to meet our community’s needs today and tomorrow. We will bolster our newsroom in the face of extreme challenges to journalism. We will nurture teams that innovate to develop new content and new models of support for public radio. And we will unite communities to explore ideas, enable civic engagement and celebrate artistic expression.

WBUR has evolved to make our journalism and programming available on every platform, meeting current audiences where they are and introducing ourselves to new audiences along the way. Today, WBUR is no longer just a radio station. We’re a thriving, multiplatform news organization at the forefront of content creation reaching audiences on-air, online, on demand and onstage.

In this remarkable moment of evolution, many traditional media outlets find themselves challenged in fundamental ways. But rapid change often brings with it boundless opportunity—assuming you know where to look for it. And at WBUR, we do.

The Solution

The Campaign for WBUR

$27.9m raised of $40m goal

Like any bold venture, this process of transformation will require capital, the commitment of the community and a shared belief in our ability to create a better future. We seek a total of $40 million beyond our traditional annual support. With this investment, WBUR will deepen how it serves our community now and for generations to come.
