fall fundraiser

Thank you for making our fall fundraiser a success

Because of our generous listeners, we were able to raise more than $170,000 during our eight-day on-air fall fundraiser. Many of you made your donations through the mail before the start of the on-air drive, adding an additional $90,000+ to the total. Thank you.

The drive got off to a good start the first Thursday, when we tried to raise an entire day's worth of money in just one hour of Morning Edition. We underestimated the response, and were able to raise just over $24,000 in only 60 minutes! Thanks for helping us bring you more programming with less on-air fundraising.

Thank you to everyone who made today a success. WRVO started a special challenge this morning, to raise $15,000 (an entire day's worth of donations) in just one hour -- and we exceeded that goal! That means that we'll be fundraiser free for the rest of the day.

Our final tally for this morning is about $24,000 and we couldn't have done it without our listeners. Whether you're a brand new member, a renewing friend or a long-time contributor, we appreciate your contribution.

Answer: you (and everyone else).

WRVO will try to make that happen tomorrow at 7 a.m., when we try to raise an entire day's worth of money in just one hour. By 8 a.m. we'll be done, and you'll have the rest of the day fundraising-free.

You can help WRVO Public Media bring you more news with less on-air fundraising by giving before the fall fundraiser begins. By giving early to the member matching fund, your contribution will be used to encourage other listeners to do their part to keep NPR News and programming, regional news and local content on the radio.
