Begathon! Spring fundraiser Update

Begathon Dates: March 20 – 26th

As of Tuesday at 6pm, we estimate we are at about $40,000. Thank you!

Spring is in the air, and so is the buzz of excitement at WMPG as we kick off Begathon! As one of the vibrant heartbeats of our university community, WMPG plays a vital role in bringing diverse voices, music, and stories to the airwaves. And again, we are asking for your financial support.

Our goal of $60,000 and whether you’re a longtime listener, a dedicated volunteer, or someone who simply believes in the power of independent media, now is the time to rally together and show support for WMPG. As usual you will hear heartfelt  pleas  from the passionate individuals who make WMPG the gem that it is.

But it’s not just about reaching a financial target; it’s about fostering a sense of belonging and solidarity. Your financial gift goes directly towards sustaining WMPG’s operations and much needed technical upgrades. By donating, you’re not just supporting a radio station; you’re investing in the cultural fabric of our community.

Spread the word, share the love, and together, let’s ensure that WMPG Community Radio continues to be a beacon of inspiration, education, and entertainment for years to come.
