Levels of Support

Connecticut Public’s Leadership Circle is a recognition society for contributors who, through their annual donations, ensure that Connecticut Public remains the state’s trusted public media source for fact-based journalism, information, educational resources, and quality programming on TV, radio and digital platforms.

Leadership Circle donors are our most generous annual contributors. They are passionate about Connecticut Public and our vision to be an essential source for truth and ideas that connects the citizens of Connecticut to their communities and to the world.

Leadership Circle giving starts at $1,000 annually. We are pleased to accept gifts made by check, credit card; as one-time gifts, pledges or through monthly installments; or through Donor Advised Funds and other giving methods.
