With just a few frigid days remaining in 2017, WESU is looking forward to warming things up in 2018. So far, we’ve raised 2/3rd of our pledge drive goal directly though community support. Our brand new FM transmitter was delivered yesterday and Wesleyan’s Office of Academic Affairs has generously offered a matching donation of $5,000 to help us close out this drive!
With your help, this energizing gift brings the end of our current pledge drive well into focus. All donations received by January 1 will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $5,000, enabling WESU to raise $10,000!!
Your donation, today, will help us take full advantage of this matching gift and enable WESU to make a sizable down payment on our new state-of-the-art solid-state digital FM transmitter and help cover our operating costs for the season.
My sincere gratitude to those of you who have helped to get us this far. Thanks in advance to those of you who will help close out this drive and begin 2018 on strong footing!
Please donate today! www.wesufm.org/pledge
With warm regards,
88.1 FM WESU
