How Nashville Public Radio Is Funded

Your Support Makes A Big Difference

As you can see from the graph below, over 94% of our operating revenue comes from the financial support of our local community. Corporation for Public Broadcasting covers only 6% of our operating revenue. We receive less than 0.25% of our funding from state and local government.* Put simply, your contributions make a big difference.

*In fiscal year 2018, we received a $4,200 grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission and a $6,500 grant from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission for our Local Arts Broadcasts on 91Classical. We also received a $2,500 Arts Build Communities grant for our podcast Versify (funded by the Tennessee General Assembly and administered in cooperation with the Tennessee Arts Commission and ArtsBuild).
