Our Philosophy

With a relatively small staff, the development department of Milwaukee PBS has volunteers assist in fundraising. Most of the credit for this success belongs to hundreds of community-minded volunteers actively participating at On-Air Membership Drives, The Great TV Auction, Milwaukee PBS Holiday Auction 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 Auction Volunteers
The Great TV Auction will be here soon! Milwaukee PBS will need enthusiastic volunteers to make it happen. We have daytime and evening, weekday and weekend shifts. Volunteer for one 4-hour shift or come in to help for several days - shift opportunities are outlined after you click "sign-up" on the Volunteer areas below.

In addition to our gratitude for volunteers' generous donation of time helping a most important Milwaukee PBS fundraiser, we provide perks for Auction volunteers including complimentary, convenient, safe parking, refreshments and a Great TV Auction 50th Anniversary T-Shirt and mug.
For more information or to volunteer for auction contact Andrea Rivera de Vega at rivera96@matc.edu or call 414-297-8009
