The Spring 2017 Fundraiser is already underway. You can contribute here. If you do not want to contribute online, call us during business hours at 888-454-7800. Our mailing address is at the bottom of the article. Here are the results thus far:
$33,198.60/ 172 Members
Our goal this spring is $60,000. We are at 55% of goal.
Over the past year, we have witnessed an assault from many quarters on ideals that public radio listeners and members hold dear. Truth appears to have become subjective from several media outlets. That is the primary reason that NPR and public radio listener-ship has climbed to an all-time high.
37.4-million people-a-week now listen to at least one NPR program. This is a 4-million person increase over 2015 numbers.
Why are more people turning to NPR? If you are reading this, you probably know the answer.
NPR's Senior VP of News Michael Oreskes said, "At a time when many news organizations have been forced to contract, NPR is expanding coverage and focusing resources on the local and national issues that listeners care about. Now, more and more people are turning to NPR as their source for unbiased, fact-based news."
Well put, Mike. If you are reading this and you truly care for KCCU and public radio as a whole, we need you to contribute to support our cause. Here is that link again.
KCCU does not have a basic membership level. We want you to contribute at a level that is comfortable for you. Last fall, we received gifts from $5 to $10,000. We still have coffee mugs and station T-shirts if you are interested. Coffee mugs are available at $75 and above. T-shirts are available at $120 and above.
Your support is vital to KCCU. It enables us to purchase programming and it enables us to pay for electricity at our transmitter sites. Without listener contributions, there would be no KCCU. KCCU would like to thank the Leslie Powell Foundation and Gallery for their generous challenge grant.
You can give online here, you can call us at 888-454-7800 between 8 am & 5 pm Monday through Friday or you can mail your check to: KCCU, 2800 W Gore Blvd, Lawton, OK. 73505.
