Many annual members join in response to an SOPTV on-air pledge drive. On-air drives are our most effective way of reaching viewers who have yet to become supporting members.
Some viewers think of making a pledge as their way of applauding their favorite SOPTV programs. You can make a pledge to SOPTV by calling 541-779-0808 or 800-888-1847 or using our online pledge form .
Once you’ve joined SOPTV by making an on-air pledge, the most cost-effective way for you to renew your annual membership is by using our online renewal form  or by responding to one of our renewal reminder notices.
Without advertising or subscription revenues, SOPTV depends on community support. Great programming doesn’t come cheap. Yes, SOPTV makes its service freely available so that the entire community benefits from the programming, but it does need annual support to sustain the quality. It takes only a few viewers to join and/or renew at the basic membership level to fund an entire hour of programming on SOPTV. They help fund their favorite programs and make them available to those who are unable to contribute.
Basic membership includes a year’s subscription to our monthly membership magazine, Inside SOPTV. with behind-the-scenes stories and schedules for our three programming services.
At the $75 level and above, SOPTV members have the option of securing an SOPTV MemberCard  — offering two-for-one dining at some of the Valley’s finest restaurants. Thanks to the support of participating restaurants and cafés in the SOPTV viewing area, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner and your companion can dine at no extra cost!
Visit the MemberCard benefits site  to learn of new participating restaurants throughout southern Oregon and northern California, including restaurants in Ashland, Medford, Grants Pass, Roseburg, Klamath Falls, and other communities.
Membership also includes the membership magazine, Inside SOPTV.
You may be able to have your gift matched! Many employers offer to match employee and retiree contributions to nonprofit cultural and educational organizations like SOPTV.
Members of the Patron Society are recognized as Southern Oregon Public Television’s most generous contributors. You’ll enjoy participating in our Salon Series which includes special events and exclusive educational opportunities only available to members of the Society as well as private screenings and behind the scenes tours of the studio. Get to know others who share your passion for SOPTV and meet members of the staff and Board of Directors.
Membership also brings you 12 issues of the Inside SOPTV members guide and the new MemberCard , the two-for-one dining benefit offered by area restaurants and cafes.
Increasingly, those who value public television in southern Oregon and northern California are ensuring its future through a gift in their WILL (Last Will & Testament). This is the best way to leave a lasting legacy to your community.
