On-Air Membership Drives A Thing Of The Past?


Last fall WCQS tried a new approach to fundraising - raise the goal without interruption to programming. The response was overwhelmingly positive! You helped us eliminate the traditional On-Air Membership Drive by responding to brief reminders during regularly scheduled breaks. Now it's time to turn the page on 30 years of interruptive fundraisers forever and prove that last fall wasn't a fluke. Let's work together to make this the new, smart-model for fundraising. 

Help us reach our spring goal of $200,000, before April 13th, without program interruptions

Our traditional Spring On-Air Membership Drive is scheduled to run April 14 - 21. You can reshape the future of public radio with your gift right now and eliminate the need for a disruptive, week-long Membership Drive.

You can also call our pledge line 828-210-4810 during regular business hours, or mail your check to:

73 Broadway
Asheville, NC 28801
