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.
