Fall Begathon is over, and your donations still arriving!
Huge thanks to all the folks that donated during our biggest Begathon ever!
We had so much fun. For the crew here at the station, it’s not just about asking for dough, though that is an essential part of the Begathon. We try to infuse the fundraising with FUNraising. We think of these twice yearly fundraising weeks as a celebration of Free Speech…of Public access to the public airwaves… to the community listening forum we create for each other.
SO thanks for the dough… it’s crucial in keeping us on the air. But thanks also for your ears and your cheers and your suggestions and enthusiasm for this jewel of a radio station that really does belong to the people who listen and love WMPG.
This Fall it’s 45 years since we hit the airwaves! All that music! So many voices and languages and ideas! Yeah!!
If you’re a regular listener, you know that we don’t ask for donations unless we need to. So we’re asking. Begathon is when we ask listeners to support WMPG Community Radio to keep us in the black and on the air for another 6 months.
We are at $54,200 toward our $55,000 goal! So close! You can still help us reach our goal by stopping by with a donation, giving us a call, or donating online!
You can make a one-time donation, OR you can become a Sustainer Donor and designate any amount ($10 or over, please) for a monthly donation.
