When will my thank you gift arrive?

As a non-profit organization, we operate under financial constraints and priorities different from those of a retail business. To ensure that the maximum amount of your contribution goes to support PBS SoCaL, we do not maintain a surplus of thank you gift inventory.

Once your donation payment has been received, we place orders to fulfill your thank you gift requests. Generally, this process takes 4 to 6 weeks from the date of payment, though many items arrive sooner. Note: Concert or event tickets will be mailed to you approximately two weeks before the event.

Does PBS SoCaL share my contact information with other organizations?

No. Your contact information will only be used for communications to you from PBS SoCaL.

Who can I contact with additional questions or concerns?

Contact Member Services at or (714) 241-4100 Option 4.
