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. 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 Friday, April 8, for KPR's Power Breakfast (7:30-9 a.m.), where your pledge will be matched dollar-for-dollar, or donate during Retro Cocktail Hour (Saturday, 4/9, 7-9 p.m.) over the weekend for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Retro Cocktail Hour 25th Anniversary Celebration Concert or wait until Friday, April 15, for Theater Friday when we'll be giving away 30 PAIRS of tickets to a Music Theater Heritage performance.* We'll also have Ten Dollar Tuesday on April 12, where KU Endowment employees will match donations of $10/month or more (that includes Sustainer upgrades!). Donate online or give us a call at 888-577-5268. And thank you for your support of KPR!
*Technically, donations aren't required for prize drawings, but a gift to KPR would sure be appreciated! Every penny protects the programming you depend on every day. See here for more information about KPR Prize Drawings.
Winners of the Retro Cocktail Hour 25th Anniversary Celebration Concert tickets are: A. Fleming & S. Ohse
