Leadership Society

Your leadership annual contribution of $1,200 or more to the MPT Foundation, Inc. keeps our public television station on course and on mission. Your gift makes it possible for MPT to deliver content of consequence throughout our five-state broadcast region and Washington, D.C. with:

• Award-winning on-air regional and national programming
• Statewide public outreach programs
• Educational content and services throughout Thinkport, an online early childhood through grade 12 mega-website for parents and educators providing rich digital media, interactive learning experiences and professional development courses.

Leadership Society benefits are intended to be fully tax deductible. A member of MPT's Major Gifts staff can personally assist you in purchasing gifts offered during on-air pledge drives. Purchases may affect your tax deduction.

To learn more and become a member of the Leadership Society or if you wish to change the way your name appears, please contact: Nickole Scroggins at (410) 581-4361 or nscroggins@mpt.org.
