Listen to KPR starting this week for your chance to give back! We'll have special programming designed to inform you on just how you can help us reach our goal. KPR is almost entirely dependent on listener support. It's listeners like you that make it possible for us to stay on the air. Thank you!
During our fall membership drive, we hope you take a moment to renew your pledge or become a new member. 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.
And this fall we have a great week of incentives to give, including:
Power Breakfast - Call in your pledge on Thursday, 9/12, 6:30-8 a.m., to DOUBLE your pledge of any amount!
Meet KPR at the Farmers' Market - We'll be pitching LIVE from the Lawrence Farmers' Market on Saturday, 9/14, 7-10 a.m., and if you donate $60+ or $5/month or more, you'll get one of our reusable veggie bags. Come see us at the Market to pledge AND pick up your bag!
Sustaining Member Monday - David Parker was so impressed by Sustainer support in the spring, that he's pledged another $10,000 if we get 150 new or upgrading Sustainers on Monday, 9/16.
$10 Friday - On the final Friday of the drive, 9/20, we'll be encouraging you to join at just $10/month or more, and when you pledge, you'll be automatically entered to win fabulous prizes throughout the day (all Sustainers are automatically entered to win).*
