WFIT's 2017 Spring Fund Drive March 17th-26th

Mar 15, 2017

4 Leaf Clovers & Leprechauns?

No, No, It's YOU who are WFIT's Lucky Charms!

WFIT's Spring Fund Drive begins on Saint Patrick's Day, Friday, March 17th!

  Did you know, the largest portion of public radio funding comes from our listeners. It is said that if you catch a leprechaun he must grant you 3 wishes. What would WFIT wish for during this fund drive?  Well growing our sustaining members (a 15% increase), gaining lots of new members (100 would be wonderful) and continued support from our current donors who without, WFIT could not survive.

 

Our overall goal is 500 pledges. So no matter what amount you give, your gift helps us reach our goal. You truly make a difference in our ability to keep your favorite music, local and world news, and community event information on the air. ​

 

Becoming a sustaining member is quite easy.  It's a great option for both you and WFIT. Setting up a regular monthly gift from your credit card or bank account, means no renewals to think about, and spreading your gift over the year is easier on your budget.

 

You can start the fund drive off early, by donating online now, and if you'd like your gift counted toward your favorite show (or shows), just note it in the comments section.  Surprise your favorite show hosts by getting them closer to their goal before our "On-Air" fund drive even starts. 

 

Beginning on March 17th, we'll have a great variety of "Thank You" gifts to choose from, when you make your pledge (online, note gift request in the comments section, or by calling (321) 674-8950), or you can choose to have the total amount go towards programming.  Our "Thank You" gifts include gift certificates for restaurants, stores and services, theater & concert tickets, t-shirts, car windshield shades, CDs and more.

 

Remember, an additional way to help us reach our goal is by spreading the word about our fund drive on facebook and twitter, and encouraging others to support their local public radio station, WFIT 89.5 FM. For Questions about memberships please contact Jane Clary at claryt@fit.edu or (321) 674-8140. We greatly appreciate our listeners, and thank you so much for all your support.
