If you're reading this article, it means that WYSU is already on your radar, either as a subscriber or a regular listener. And hopefully, you're both! Because that is how public radio survives, of course – with the help of listener support.
Our traditional semi-annual fund drive is coming up April 8-11, and once again we're keeping things down to just 3 days of on-air fund raising.
Director of Broadcasting Gary Sexton says, "These seem to have worked really well for the past few drives, which is great, because it makes things so much easier on listeners, staff, volunteers and vendors alike. Our goal once again is $115,000, and we'll do it just like we always do – one call, one letter, one pledge at a time."
The shortened drives work when everyone does their part -- and the earlier the better! So we’re asking you to take a few moments of your time RIGHT NOW and either pledge on line at wysu.org, or by phoning us during regular business hours. 330-941-1481. If you received a renewal letter in the mail, please mail your check today. We would appreciate that so much! We’re even offering an Early Bird Prize Package worth over $800 to encourage your early participation.
Join us April 8-11 when we'll have our usual conversations, music and daily prize give-aways, and all the things that put the fun in fund drives! But we'll hopefully do it with three really busy days, rather than a full week of slogging.
And at the very end of the drive, we'll be drawing a name to see who wins a 11-day Alaskan Glacier Cruise for two aboard the Royal Caribbean's Rhapsody of the Sea. It very well could be you!
