Our Philosophy
With a relatively small staff, the development department of Milwaukee PBS has volunteers assist in fundraising. Our legacy of fundraising success belongs in no small part to hundreds of volunteers actively participating at On-Air Membership Drives and Special Events throughout the year. 

We believe our development program is successful because volunteers are vital members of our team. We offer a variety of opportunities and different responsibility levels that match to their interests and talents. Our volunteers are committed to public television and they know their effort provides Milwaukee excellence in public television broadcasting because of the funds they help raise.


Milwaukee PBS is thrilled to announce the return of the 13th Mittens and More charitable drive this October! After a pause due to COVID-19, we're back, and we've missed this heartwarming initiative just as much as our viewers.

Mittens and More is all about spreading warmth and kindness. We gather new hats, scarves, and mittens, many of them lovingly handcrafted, to distribute to agencies serving those in need right here in our community.

But we can't do it alone! We're calling on the community to join us and make a difference. We need volunteers to help sort the generous donations, which come in all sizes for men, women, children, and even infants.

Volunteer times are available on weekday mornings and afternoons from November 1 through November 17. It's a chance to come together, lend a hand, and ensure that everyone in our community stays warm and cared for this winter.

Let's keep heads, hands, and hearts warm this season. Please consider joining us in this wonderful endeavor. Together, we can make a real impact!
