Personal Message

As a benefit of the Leadership Circle at the Partner level (annual gift of $1,200–$2,499), you’re entitled to one personal message to be broadcast on MPR on the date of your choice.

Your message could celebrate an anniversary, birthday, or milestone, or honor the memory of a loved one. Messages must avoid language that is political or religious in nature, that recognize organizations or groups, that use qualifiers (i.e., “the best,”) or that include calls to action.

We’ll craft your message according to the information you provide. Here are a few examples of how your message will be formatted.

Birthday:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by MPR member Mark Jones, in recognition of Jane Smith’s forty-fourth birthday.”

Marriage/Anniversary:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by MPR member Mark Jones, in recognition of Jane and John Smith’s forty-fourth wedding anniversary.”

Memorial:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by MPR member Mark Jones, in memory of his mother, Susan.”

Milestone:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by MPR member Mark Jones, congratulating Jane Smith on her college graduation.”

EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by MPR member Mark Jones, congratulating Jane and John Smith on the birth of their daughter, Sally.”
