The PRX Ambassador Council is a community of individual and family foundations who support our work with gifts of $1,000+ for either organizational needs or specific programmatic priorities, such as The World, Radiotopia, Reveal, TRAX, and our podcast garages. Ambassador Council members help PRX discover new opportunities and engage with potential supporters.

PRX celebrates members of its Ambassador Council through recognition on our website, podcasts and broadcast programs, with the majority of on-air and podcast credits tied to The World. Ambassador Council members also receive regular communications about programs and initiatives, and invitations to private events featuring talents from across our portfolio.

The Ambassador Council is named for our long-standing commitment to international perspectives, alternative voices and varied points of view.

Learn more about making gifts by mail, gifts of stock, and incorporating PRX in your planned giving here. For more information or questions about the Ambassador Council, please contact Lisa Baumert, Director of Individual Giving, at lisa.baumert@prx.org or (402) 660-8045.

Events


In addition to our annual two-day Ambassador Council gathering, which is held in a different city each year, we host smaller events around the country for friends of the organization.

In the past year, we’ve come together in Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Seattle for events featuring talent from across the diverse PRX portfolio.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have hosted a slate of virtual events for our donors and partners, including the “What We’re Listening To” listening series.

If you’re interested in hosting an event — in person, or virtual — or sharing our work with your network, we would love to bring PRX and our programs to you. Please get in touch with Lisa Baumert at lisa.baumert@prx.org or (402) 660-8045 for more information.
