You did it! WCQS listeners raised $200,000 for the Fall Membership Drive by September 21st for uninterrupted programming. It was a terrific show of community support, and every pledge to WCQS was matched by generous sponsors to benefit health, education and income partner programs of the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County.
WCQS listeners have made public radio history - again! This is the third successful 'quiet drive' for WCQS. We asked for your support during regularly scheduled breaks, so that not one minute of programming was interrupted by fundraising. Listener support makes everything you enjoy on WCQS possible. Fundraising is essential, but interrupting the very reason you tune in is not. This is fundraising that respects the programming and your listening experience.
Thanks to everyone who made this drive a success, and thank to all of our Sustaining Members who contribute year round. If you didn't have a chance to do your part yet this fall, it's not too late:
Call our pledge line at 828-210-4810
Or mail your contribution to 73 Broadway Asheville, NC 28801
You will hear our thanks every day.
