For everyone at KUSP, I want to express thanks for the support we received from our listeners during our fall pledge drive. We were apprehensive, it’s fair to say, going into the campaign in the midst of global financial turmoil. In the end, we made our key goal — 900 pledges according to the unofficial tally — and came within 4% of the total number of dollars pledged during our Fall 2007 campaign. Pretty good results!
Membership is the biggest single source of KUSP income, and pledge drives account for a little more than half of our annual membership revenue (with the rest chiefly coming through renewals by mail). While more work will have to be done to keep KUSP healthy in this financial climate, we’ve taken a big step forward in this drive. So, for everyone who has given so far, thanks — and if you haven’t, you can go here and make a gift right now!
