Development Services Team

PBS Development Services works in partnership with stations to sustain and improve the financial prosperity of the public broadcasting system. We assist with a diversified portfolio of revenue streams in the areas of philanthropy (major, planned and institutional giving, corporate support), digital products (Passport) and membership (digital fundraising, on-air, sustainers). We are your go-to location for tools, resources, and trainings that will further your station’s success and ability to thrive.

We work closely with the Development Advisory Committee on determining the best strategy and focus of our work that will have the greatest impact for system financial sustainability.
