WCQS Fall Fund Drive

Jared Gant

 


Experts predict the upcoming fall leaf season in Western North Carolina will be considerably better from last year’s, and you can thank all the rain the region received in 2017 for that.  BPR’s Davin Eldridge has more…

 

Two stations, one goal - and no program interruptions. It's the Blue Ridge Public Radio Fall Fund Drive! Our goal is $200,000 by September 27th for uninterrupted programming. Blue Ridge Public Radio - WCQS / BPR News is listener supported and your donation makes everything you count on possible. Support what you value: responsible reporting and journalism with insight and meaning, cultural celebration - and no program interruptions. 

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 is only as vibrant and vital as the community we serve. That's why we are proud to partner with United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County this fall. The WCQS Membership Drive is on! Every gift pledged to WCQS by September 21st will be matched by a pool of generous sponsors to benefit the work of United Way.

No Drive. No interruptions. Our campaign to meet our fall fundraising goal without interrupting programs is working! We have less than $30,000 to go to reach the goal.  $150,000 by September 10th means no Fall Fund Drive! No interruptions. Just the programs you love in their entirety.

Maybe you did it for the tote bag. Maybe you did it for great radio. But you did it!

Our thanks to the 1,600 contributing listeners who supported our fall membership drive, raising more than $200,000 for WCQS, to pay for the programming you rely on every day.

We also welcome more than 260 new members into the WCQS family. 

We want to thank all of our contributing listeners across Western North Carolina.

We are committed to honoring your trust and support. You will hear our thanks every day.
