Thank you for your support during our just completed Winter Pledge Drive. Because of you, we came within sneezing distance of our goal-we received $92,000 in pledges and our goal was $95,000. Yay!
This included $10 we got from an inmate at Oakhill Correctional Institution. Wisconsin inmates get paid between 12 -42 cents an hour, depending on experience, so his donation represented anywhere from 24 to 83 hours of work.
We also received $1000 challenge grants from a number of donors, to encourage participation from new donors or donors who hadn’t given in over two years.
And we received over 1000 donations in between $10 and $1000 from you and your neighbors. We’re like the politicians who don’t take money from PACS-we rely on individual donations from those who believe in our mission (to reserve one part of the media for direct community involvement and ownership) and value the services we provide.
We are grateful for each and every contribution we received. Thank you!
We have lots of shows with tickets still available, some below cost. Check them out on our website. You can pledge for a pair of tickets by calling our receptionist between 9 and 6 pm, Monday-Friday.
If you didn’t have the chance to pledge or would like to make one final donation to our Winter Pledge Drive, our website donation page is still active. Gracias. Danke. Obrigado. Merci. Thank you!
