WPT Volunteers help keep the “public” in Wisconsin Public Television!

Whether it’s assisting with our Auction, working at Quilt Expo, or covering the phones during our pledge drives, we could use your help.

Pre-Pledge Drive Training

Aug 01 - Aug 06, 2019

WPT Volunteers are switching to a new software program to take pledges at Membership Drives starting in August 2019. Volunteers with experience on our previous system are invited to attend an hour-long training session before our next pledge drive.

Shift Coordinators and Shift Coordinator Assistants must attend a training session prior to volunteering in a leadership role in August.

Attending a training session is not required to volunteer on the phone bank, but it is encouraged! We will continue to hold a training session at the beginning of each shift during the drive—but if you want to familiarize yourself with the new program ahead of the drive, please register for a training session.

August Membership Drive

Aug 17 - Aug 25, 2019

A membership drive is an important fundraising mechanism for Wisconsin Public Television. During select times over the course of the year, WPT airs special programming designed to raise funds for the station. Viewers can call in to make a contribution and our enthusiastic WPT volunteers are waiting to collect their information using a basic computer software program.

Quilt Expo

Quilt Expo is an educational and community fundraising event presented by Wisconsin Public Television and Nancy Zieman Productions. Attendees can connect with their creative muse by participating in sewing workshops, lectures and stage presentations. See an artist's creativity turned into a beautiful quilt by walking through our juried quilt exhibit. And don't forget to bring your walking shoes as guests can shop their way through a 85,000-square-foot vendor mall!
