It's time for Fall Fund Drive and a new Membership Year!

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

We’ve just started Fiscal Year 2021, after a super successful 2020 fundraising period! We ended 2020 with a membership total of $430,624.20, 334 sustaining members, and gained 328 new members! That’s amazing!  But now, our fundraising total is back at $0 and we are looking towards our $422,000 fundraising goal for 2021. With your help we can do it!

Here are 3 ways to get 2021 started off right:

1. Take Our Match Challenge

Keep an eye out for our bright yellow fundraising letter in your mailbox. We’re trying something fun and new this year… All mail donations will be matched dollar for dollar this month, up to $13,500 by a group of our generous leadership donors. A huge thanks to Crystal and Jonathan Walker, Dennis and Jacquie Fry, Tony Lavoie, and the rest of the Leadership Donors who made this Matching Challenge possible.

2.  Bennett’s Cards Available Now

Listener favorite’s Bennett Nurseries gift cards are now available just in time for planting pansies, bulbs, fruit trees, and other Fall goodies! $50 gift cards are available for a pledge of $150 or more and $100 gift cards are available for a pledge of $300 or more. Supplies are limited and they don’t last long, so get yours before they're gone.

3. Become a Sustainer

This pledge drive, instead of focusing on getting to a big number we're focusing on the small goals that get us there! We’re trying to add 100 new sustaining donors in the month of October and we need YOUR help to get to our goal of 343 TOTAL sustainers. Becoming a Sustaining Donor is the easiest way to contribute to WLRH, and fits into most any budget. Your donation of $5 a month or more is charged to your credit or debit card every month and automatically renews at the end of the year. As a Sustainer, you can adjust your monthly amount or change your account information at any time from our secure website. Click here to become a sustainer today!

We can't thank you enough for all of the support and encouragement you've sent our way in the 2020 calendar year. Because of you, our doors are open and our airwaves full of amazing music, news, and community programs.
