Local, not-for-profit public broadcasting station, WETA serves the Greater Washington community, producing and broadcasting radio and television programs of intellectual integrity and cultural merit that inspire, enlighten and entertain.
How do you help people in my community?
WETA provides unique, commercial-free programs for children and adults across the Metropolitan area. WE produce and broadcast programs that focus on local communities, as well as the larger world around us.
Why do you need my support?
As a public, not-for-profit broadcaster, WETA counts on individual viewers and listeners for more than half of its day-to-day operating funds. Your contribution helps support the production and broadcast of programs that are available to all members of our community, including educational outreach in schools and other institutions across the area.
How can I be sure that you will use my money wisely and won't waste it?
Our cost of fundraising is consistent over time (around 16.6%), with the largest portion going directly into production, broadcast and other operating needs. Our Board of Trustees is a body of community members whose over-riding responsibility is to ensure proper stewarding of the organizationís resources.
