In this season of giving, you’re no doubt thinking about your family and friends, and all the things you have to be thankful for in 2013.
That spirit of giving can also extend to organizations that matter to you—the ones that really make a difference in your life. As the year comes to a close and you consider which organizations to support, please consider putting WKU Public Radio on your list!
Your tax-deductible, end-of-the-year gift will help us bring you the excellent news and information programming, music, and weekend shows that you rely on hearing whenever you listen to WKU Public Radio.
When you give at certain levels, you can get one of our great thank you gifts, like the WKU Public Radio sweatshirt and baseball hat. Those items would make great holiday gifts for you, or perhaps someone you know who loves WKU Public Radio. You can see all of our gifts here.
WKU Public Radio members are being offered a 25% discount on general admission tickets to the "This I Believe: Kentucky" book launch.
This event will be held in Louisville at the Center Building Auditorium on the Spalding University campus on Sunday, November 17 at 2 p.m. Hosted by long-time public radio personality Bob Edwards, this event celebrates the publication of "This I Believe: Kentucky", a new anthology featuring 60 "This I Believe" essays written by current or former Kentuckians.
At the event, which will be taped for later broadcast, Edwards will interview several prominent book contributors, including Kentucky Poet Laureate Frank X Walker, Spalding President Tori Murden McClure, and noted writers Sena Jeter Naslund, Silas House, and George Ella Lyon.
We want to thank everybody who pledged their support to WKU Public Radio Wednesday morning over the phone and online! Thanks to your generosity, we were able to raise about $3,800 and meet the challenge goal given to us by Dr. Charles and Susan Webb of Bowling Green!
Check out the nearby picture that shows the board where we keep track of our daily pledge numbers. As you can see, the morning started off slow, but WKU Public Radio listeners really responded in the final hour of Morning Edition!
The money committed to us Wednesday morning is a big piece of the overall weekly goal of $50,000 that we need to raise by Saturday evening.
Remember: the sooner we get to that goal, the sooner we end this fall fundraiser!
You can call us anytime with your new or renewing membership at 1-800-599-5958, and you can pledge online here.
