WUIS Spring On-Air Drive Finishes Short

WUIS Spring Drive Progress
Randy Eccles

WUIS program funding is $30,000 short at the completion of the spring on-air drive.

The station relies on listener support to fund national and local program costs.  This year's goal of $330,000 may still be met as funds continue to be raised through June 30, 2013 (WUIS' fiscal year runs July 1 - June 30).  Additional revenue is expected as Calendar Club monthly giving and direct mail receipts are recinciled.

An additional day of pitching was added to close the gap and a major donor match the last weekend resulted in an increase in donations.  A new member match also generated positive response with many listeners making their first donations to support public radio programs on WUIS.

Donations are still welcome at WUIS.org.

Randy Eccles is thrilled to be talking with community members and joining them in becoming informed citizenry. Please reach out at randy.eccles@nprillinois.org.
