WYES Producers Circle

The WYES Producers Circle is a dedicated group of donors who provide significant support to WYES through annual gifts of $1,200 and more. Producers Circle members are a diverse group united by their commitment to quality public television service for the people of New Orleans, southeast Louisiana and surrounding communities along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

For the past several years, the Producers Circle has provided funding for WYES cultural programs that emphasize the traditions, history and cuisine of our region.

To join the Producers Circle, you may simply contribute on-line. If you prefer to discuss the Producers Circle or other giving opportunities with us, contact WYES Vice President of Development Robin Cooper by email or by phone at (504) 831-1503.
