How to Become a GPB Radio Day Sponsor
With a membership donation of $365 or more on a credit card, donors may choose to "sponsor" a day, in which a personal message of their choosing will be read five times on the air on the date of their choice, provided that no other donor has already reserved that date. If your date is unavailable please have a second choice in mind. Donors must call 800-222-4788 with their contribution and request their first and second dates of their choice (this opportunity is not available through contributions on our website). Donations must be a one-time one time payment only on a credit card. No installments please. We accept Visa, American Express, Mastercard, or Discover.
Description of GPB’s Day Sponsorship Program
The donor will receive five (5) on-air credits on a single day. Donors may choose the date of their Day Sponsorship, provided no other donor has already reserved that day. Only one Day Sponsorship is available per day. To ensure adequate schedule and production time dates must be requested at least 14 calendar days in advance. We are currently accepting Day Sponsorship messages to air through March 31, 2013.
Eligibility for Day Sponsorship Messages
Day Sponsorship messages are a form of special recognition available solely to individual donors. Day Sponsorships are non-transferable and may not be donated to a third party. GPB does not accept anonymous Day Sponsorships. Day Sponsorships must be used within one year of GPB's receipt of the qualifying contribution.
Requirements for Day Sponsorship Messages
Messages must conform to GPB's Day Sponsorship format. All messages must begin, "Support for GPB comes from our Day Sponsor" followed by the first and last name of the person or persons who made the contribution and a message. Day Sponsorship messages will be no longer than 15 seconds when read in an even and unhurried manner. GPB reserves the right of final approval for all Day Sponsorship messages.
Day Sponsorship Messages Must Be Personal in Nature
Day Sponsorship messages may NOT include promotional, commercial or controversial messages of any kind. Language referencing political campaigns, candidacies or legislation will not be accepted. Because Day Sponsorship messages are intended to be personal, messages may not include any information that implies a "call to action" from our listening audience. Therefore, Day Sponsorship messages may not include contact information of any kind (for example: addresses, phone numbers, or web addresses) or the dates, times or locations of any event.
Day Sponsorships may not be used to promote businesses. Businesses interested in sponsoring GPB’s programs are encouraged to contact GPB’s Corporate Support toll-free at
