As a member of WTVPís Klystron Society, you are committed to supporting the long-term
excellence and impact of public media in Central Illinois.
Your annual gift of $1,000 or more helps secure the funding necessary for quality PBS
and local programming, as well as community resources such as PBS LearningMedia.
State and federal funding now accounts for less than one-fourth of WTVPís annual
operating budget so private support is more important than ever.
Klystron members provide a significant share of WTVPís annual budget. In return,
we recognize and thank our leading members in the following ways:
Exclusive invitations to studio screenings and backstage events at live concerts, such as Andre Rieu, Celtic Woman and, more recently, Under The Streetlamp and Straight No Chaser.
Priority registration for WTVP-sponsored tour and travel
Recognition at an annual Klystron Society event
Recognition on WTVPís donor wall and in on-air spots
The personal touch Ė let us help you build your PBS program library or arrange a station tour for
family and friends

We know you wondering why we call our leading donors members of the Klystron Society.
What is a Klystron, after all?
At its simplest, a klystron is a specialized amplifier, outputting far higher microwave
and radio frequencies than other devices.
And, simply put, thatís what our major donors do for public television. They have the
power, through their generous support, to carry the station further into the future.
