WNCU 8K Shave Off A Day Pre-Campaign

If you listen to WNCU, then you understand the importance of fundraising. Every public radio listener knows that listener support keeps quality programming on our airwaves. Unfortunately, interrupting programming during this time of the year is part of the course. To fundraise without interrupting the programming, we are asking listeners to help us shave days off our Spring Fest Campaign, scheduled for April 3-12. We’re calling it the “8K Shave Off a Day Pre-Campaign.”

How does the Buy Back work?

Our Spring Fest Membership Campaign is scheduled to begin Wednesday, April 3, through Saturday, April 12. However, for every $8,000 in pledges received, we will shave a day off the drive.

Why Shave Off Days?

At WNCU, our goal is to give you more programming and less on-air fundraising whenever possible. Shaving off days from our Spring Fest Membership Campaign is one way to make that happen. But, we need your support today to begin that process.

Does it have to be a 10-day drive?

No. You can make it shorter by making your pledge or mailing in your donation to:

WNCU Membership Department
P.O. Box 3659
Durham, NC 27702

You’ll automatically be entered into a drawing to win an iPad Mini! The winner will be announced on May 3, 2013. Click here to read the official rules.

iPad Giveaway

We are days away from conducting our Spring Fest pledge drive which begins on April 11 and simultaneously we’re conducting a great drawing just for you!

You have an opportunity to pledge on behalf our campaign to keep award winning programming accessible on our airwaves, and you also have a chance to participate in our drawing to win a new 16 GB Wifi iPad!  Either way it is a win-win situation for you.

Pledge today and you are automatically entered in the drawing.  We’ll draw the name of one lucky winner on Monday, April 30, at noon.

Spring Fest: 15 Years and Counting – April 6-15

Thus far, we have had an active year at WNCU! I am sure you are enjoying your longtime favorites like Democracy Now!, one of America’s most thought provoking radio news programs, accompanied by the familiar voice of BH Hudson Monday through Friday during the Morning Jazz program, along with Bob Parlocha overnight and specialty weekend programs like 8-Track Flashback, The Funk Show and Hallelujah Praise.

Most recently, the House of Representatives voted to defund nationally distributed programs such as Democracy Now!, Tell Me More, Piano Jazz, Jazz Profiles and Jazz at Lincoln Center to name a few. The bill still must pass the Senate and get the President’s signature before becoming a law.  However, today, this notion has cast some uncertainty on one of WNCU’s funding sources.

So, what does that mean? It means we need your help now more than ever. Spring Fest 2011 is right around the corner, April 6-15. We are optimistic that our loyal listeners will band together and give their most generous gifts in support of keeping their favorite programs alive.

Our members are a strong and reliable source of funding for WNCU. That is why, I’m asking you to consider your feelings about WNCU and the value that this public radio station has in your life.  If you believe in the mission of WNCU, now is the time to show your appreciation.

Please consider renewing your membership or giving an additional gift today. By doing so, you will ensure that we continue to do business as usual despite the possible congressional cuts.

I hope you will pledge a gift, right now, online or mail your gift to: WNCU Membership Department, PO Box 3659, Durham, NC 27702.

Thank you for listening to WNCU and for your support.

Fall Fest ’09 (October 12-18)

PrintDear WNCU Supporter,

There are among us special individuals whose commitment to the community organizations they care about goes far beyond the ordinary. Through your exemplary level of generosity to WNCU, you have shown that you are one of those special people.

Every day we are bombarded with news of the economic crisis we face today. This, of course, is a concern for everyone. The crisis affects the way we all spend our time, our money and energy. Public radio stations depend heavily on financial support from individual donors, like you. In difficult times, we need your continued support.

You are a huge part of the reason why we are here and we are more determined than ever to keep the programming services you love in place without fail. We are hopeful that all of our listeners will continue to stand with us and support our efforts as we campaign to keep WNCU on the airwaves during Fall Fest 2009 from October 12-18, 2009.

WNCU provides an invaluable community service through our enriching radio programming. We offer listeners the highly praised favorites they look forward to hearing on WNCU: Morning, Afternoon and Evening Jazz; Democracy Now; 8-Track Flashback; and Hallelujah Praise,  just to name a few. It is the programming we offer that has personally moved our volunteers to become members of the station.

Our continued success depends in great measure on the generosity of loyal members and listeners. Please contribute today.  Please click here to keep WNCU on your radio dial and online.

Sincerely,

Uchenna Bulliner
