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.

It's called S.W.A.G. -- as in stuff we all get, but only if you donate to WRVO Public Media during the fall fundaiser.  Here's a look at some of the premiums we're offering this year. You can select each premium on our online web form, or let our volunteers know that you're interested on the phone when you call (800) 341-3690.

For a contribution of $150, we can thank you by sending one of our brand new WRVO Public Media hats.

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.

A successful public radio fundraiser depends on the help of staff, community members, listeners, volunteers and donors; and making a donation isn't the only way to support us. A donation of your time is just as important.

We're looking for phone bank volunteers during our fall fundraiser. It starts on Thursday, October 16 and ends on the following Thursday, October 23. Shifts vary in length, but most are around two hours. Can't make it for two hours? No problem. Any amount of time helps us meet our goal.

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.

First, we want to thank everyone who donated during Foneless February and during the first weeks of March. Thanks to these generous contributions, we were able to cut down our spring on-air fundraising to just over two and a half days. You'll only be hearing from us through this Saturday at noon.

If you've already donated, thank you so much, but if you haven't yet please take the time to make a difference today. Here are just a few reasons to donate:

It may not be February any more, but we're still keeping it 'foneless'- for now. You still have time to donate before our spring fundraiser, which starts Thursday, March 13. Here are a few incentives that you shouldn't forget about:

This month, WRVO Public Media is making a silent request for a contribution to keep the phones quiet. We call it 'Foneless February.'
