Support The Paley Center for Media

Your fully tax-deductible donation assists the Paley Center to fulfill its nonprofit mission to preserve, explore, and educate through media.

Your gift helps us to maintain and expand the renowned treasure, the Paley Archive, a public collection of over 160,000 television and radio programs spanning 100 years, and to interpret the cultural, creative, and social significance of media in ways that both entertain and inform. You’ll also be supporting recognized education programs serving 10,000 students and educators annually, including Teen Transmitters, a paid internship that gives aspiring youth critical skills and experience to get their foot in the door. This brings public high school students from across NYC together with media arts professionals and introduces them to the creative and artistic process and methods of media creation, providing them with best-in-class networking and career development experiences, and introducing them to pathways to careers in media arts and related industries. More than ever before, paid career training programs are vital for teens. Help us continue to grow our mission-driven initiatives including Teen Transmitters, building a diverse media workforce of tomorrow.  The Paley Center for Media is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
