NEWWatch a live feed of our construction Having called the basement levels of the University of Arizona’s Modern Languages Building home for more than 50 years, AZPM is building a new public media campus. With your support, Southern Arizona will have a new, state-of-the-art public media home designed to keep the community’s needs at the forefront!

Located in Tucson’s newest, most innovative mixed-use development, The University of Arizona Tech Park at The Bridges, the new facility is designed as a public square – a convening place for public debates, presentations, screenings, and events for generations to come.

We’ve raised over 86% of the $65 million needed. Now we need YOUR help to get to the finish line! While your annual gift is always the most critical, this exciting opportunity awaits for those who can do more!

To make a donation or for more information, please call Melissa Rios at 520 848-4100 or donate online.

By selecting a five-year gift, your donation will be matched two-to-one by an AZPM Supporter*, so make an annual or monthly contribution now!
*Matching portion not applied to named memorial spaces.
Please make checks payable to: AZPM Capital Campaign; PO Box 210067 Tucson, AZ 85721

An incredible new space will open AZPM’s doors to the public so the community can fully experience everything AZPM has to offer. The new home will be a gathering space for the whole community, while allowing for program expansion, innovation, and new partnerships.
