The WGCU Fall Radio Drive is going on right now!
This year WGCU needs to raise $160,000 without interrupting your favorite radio programming! And it all depends on you!
Over the next several weeks, we'll air short reminders that don’t interrupt the radio programs you love. If it's time to renew your membership, renew! Make an additional gift. Tell your friends and family to donate. We’re leaving it up to you. The drive is over once we reach 160,000!
Thank you gifts are available. PLUS! Every donation is entered for the chance to win prizes, with the grand prize of a 3-Night Staycation at 'Tween Waters Inn, valued at $1,000. Prize includes three nights lodging for two, two dinners, two one-hour water sports activities OR two one-hour spa treatments! (but only if we raise $160,000 before opening up a pledge mic October 23.)
Share your thoughts via social media: #RadioUNinterrupted and #GivetoWGCU. Submit an audio testimonial on how you listen and/or why you love NPR/WGCU. It could make it on air this month! Learn how below.
With your help, we’re going to reduce fundraising that interrupts programming as much as possible. We’re counting on you to help us reach our goal in record time and having fun while getting there! Let's get going! Call 1-800-533-9428 to donate or click on the link below!
