Leadership Giving at IPR

The Broadcaster's Circle and the Producer's Circle

Your leadership gift to Interlochen Public Radio continues a legacy of artistic and journalistic excellence from the stages and studios of Interlochen and paves the way for IPR’s future.

In 1963, Joe Maddy, founder of Interlochen Center for the Arts, fulfilled a dream by creating a public radio station to broadcast classical music from the stages of Interlochen and around the world, free of commercials. This vision was ahead of its time, and in 1971, IPR became a charter member of National Public Radio.

In the decades since, listener support has helped IPR grow into an award-winning station, offering 'round-the-clock access to unbiased, balanced news and information on IPR News, and captivating music, arts and culture on Classical IPR. Your leadership gift can help IPR grow into something even greater than Joe Maddy ever imagined.
