The KUSP Fall Membership Drive finished just after 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 10, the ninth day of the campaign. We surpassed our goal; at last count over $126,000 has been pledged.
This tops the station’s previous best result for a single pledge drive of $125,177, recorded in the spring of 2004. At that time the public radio listening audience was divided among the local stations in a very different way than it is today — also, people used the various ways you can give to public radio (via mail, on-line, or phoning in a pledge) differently at that time than they do now.
From last fall to this fall, the revenue from the drive climbed by 20.2% — which is exceptional under any circumstances.
I am supremely grateful to KUSP’s hardworking staff and volunteers for their commitment to the cause, and to the over one thousand donors who have contributed to the campaign so far.
Of course, if you haven’t made a gift to our fall campaign yet, there’s no reason to hold back! Just go to our secure pledge page and make a contribution on-line.
