YOUR support is now more important than ever. KPR is still striving to overcome a $216,571 budget cut from the University of Kansas, made effective last July. This is in addition to a number of others cuts over the years, totaling $521,571 less annual support from the university since budget reductions began in FY15. That is why we come to you, our loyal listeners, for the support we need to keep this station running strong, because your contributions, along with underwriting, now make up more than 84% of our annual budget.
We're in this together, so please consider making a pledge today to help us finish out this fiscal year securely. KPR is a listener-supported public radio station. Listeners help pay for the thought-provoking, well-crafted and informative programs. Listeners also pay for transmitters, computers, electricity - everything it takes to bring you those programs.
Join us starting Tuesday, June 21, when your pledge will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group* of generous donors who have pledged $20,000. Donate online or give us a call at 888-577-5268. And thank you for your support of KPR! As of Monday, June 27, we have met the Quiet Drive Challenge! Thank you to everyone who participated in this drive AND to those who Sustain KPR each and every month. We could not be more grateful.
