If you didn’t take part in yesterday’s dollar-for-dollar match during Morning Edition, you have another chance to make your gift to WKU Public Radio count double!
Listeners who invest the first $1,000 in WKU Public Radio during Morning Edition Thursday will have their gift matched dollar-for-dollar, thanks to a generous offer by Cheryl Kirby-Stokes and Mike Stokes, longtime listeners and supporters of WKU Public Radio.
Cheryl works with the WKU Office of Scholar Development, and Mike is a WKU Biology Professor.
They are offering $1,000 in a dollar-for-dollar match that’s in effect right now during Morning Edition—so if you’ve been meaning to call with your gift but haven’t gotten around to it, don’t put it off any longer! Your call right now ensures that your contribution is doubled thanks to our matching gift from Cheryl Kirby-Stokes and Mike Stokes!
If you missed out on our dollar-for-dollar match Wednesday morning, you can still pledge your support this afternoon and have your gift doubled!
During Wednesday’s All Things Considered, WKU Public Radio listeners have the chance to take part in a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $1,000—thanks to our longtime friends and supporters Dr. Charles and Susan Webb of Bowling Green.
Dr. Charles and Susan have been generous supporters of WKU Public Radio for years and have offered these special incentive gifts during many of our membership campaigns.
They are willing to match dollar-for-dollar the first $1,000 offered during Wednesday’s All Things Considered. This means you have the chance to double your contribution if you take this opportunity to pledge your membership support to WKU Public Radio.
We don’t want to waste this opportunity to raise an important amount of the funding needed to pay for the great programs that we hear every day on WKU Public Radio.
You can take Dr. Charles and Susan Webb up on their offer and have your investment doubled by calling 1-800-599-WKYU, or by pledging online.
Now you can see the faces of the people who bring you local news on WKU Public Radio!
We have a great new promotional spot for TV currently airing in Bowling Green that gives viewers a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at the WKU Public Radio newsroom. Narrated by our local All Things Considered host, Emil Moffatt, the piece describes how we love to tell the stories that impact individuals and communities all across our listening area.
We also want to thank our friends and colleagues at WKU PBS and WKU Marketing for all their hard work in conceiving, planning, videotaping, and editing this piece together. Without them, this project never would have happened!
As 2013 comes to a close, WKU Public Radio would like to ask you to consider making an online end-of-year gift.
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 this year.
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-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 this station.
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.
It's day three of WKU Public Radio's fall membership campaign, and we're asking you to call us with your financial support!
This is a very important week when we raise a lot of the money necessary to pay for the news, interview, music, and entertainment programs we all enjoy when we listen to WKU Public Radio.
We need to raise $50,000 by Saturday evening to stay on place. As soon as we get to that number, we'll stop the fundraiser! That's why every single call of support really matters!
In addition to supporting your local public radio service, everybody who calls us Tuesday is entered to win a free night's stay at the Holiday Inn-University Plaza in Bowling Green. The package includes breakfast for two, and a $50 gift card that could be used for lunch or dinner at three nearby restaurants.
While you don't have to pledge to enter this drawing, we hope you'll become a new or renewing member when you call us at 1-800-599-9598! You can also pledge online.
