Klystron Society



Leadership Giving

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

Why Klystron?

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.
