Give NPR+ as a Gift


What is NPR+ and how does it work?

NPR+ is a service that provides audiences access to perks including sponsor-free listening to many NPR podcasts along with bonus episodes and early access to select NPR podcasts. Once you sign up, you’ll see directions for how to set up these exclusive versions of NPR podcasts on your preferred listening application. 

Standard listening experiences without perks remain free of charge to everyone. By signing up for NPR+ you’ll get access to more from your favorite NPR podcasts and you’ll be supporting NPR and our Network of stations across the country. 

I’m an existing donor to a local station, how do I get access to NPR+?

Receiving the NPR+ bundle as a station donor requires a minimum donation of $8/month or $96/year to a participating NPR+ station

If you've heard from your station that they have given you NPR+ benefits, select “Login” at the top of and sign in using the same email you have on record with your station. You should immediately get an email to login and start using NPR+.

While many participating stations may offer this benefit to their existing donors, some stations do not. To inquire about access as an existing donor or if you’re having trouble redeeming your benefits, please reach out directly to your Member station for more information. You can find your local station’s website here.

When will the bundle be available in my area?

We are working hard to get every NPR Member station offering NPR+ in their markets! Thank you for your patience. If your local or preferred station is not yet offering NPR+, we encourage you to contact them to request they offer it (you can find your local station’s website here) and to let us at NPR know (here).

Can I give NPR+ as a gift?

Yes, you can. To give NPR+ as a gift, select the product you would like to give. Then select “Give NPR+ as a gift” to sign up. You can choose to give NPR+ for a duration of six or 12 months. Your gift will expire after the selected time frame, and you will not be automatically charged when that period ends. The recipient of your gift will be prompted to sign up directly to maintain access to NPR+ after your gift period expires.

Which is more beneficial to public media – single show subscriptions, or the NPR+ bundle?

You are free to pick whichever feels right to you! Both singles and the bundle directly support the essential work of public media.

I’m a PBS Passport member – do I get access to NPR+ too?

If you are supporting a station that offers Passport and NPR+ then you may be eligible to bundle the two programs into a single gift.  Please contact your local station directly to inquire. You can find your local station’s website here.
