Each year, WORT’s three Pledge Drives in February, June, and October account for roughly 75% of WORT’s income. Business support for the drives is vital to their success. You can help our Pledge Drives in many ways:
Meal Provision (October and February only)
Provide a meal for 20 hard-working volunteers and receive numerous on-air mentions. Simply email email@example.com and provide the following information:
- Your business name, address, and phone, as well as a contact person.
- The preferred day of week and type of meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner).
- Whether donation is for pickup, or will be delivered to the station (your choice).
We will contact you to schedule the donation and discuss the details.
Push pledge drives to the limit with a challenge grant for your favorite show.
Option #1: Pledge Booster
Offer to match caller pledges until the amount you set is reached.
Option #2: Show Challenge
Offer to match total show goal if listeners reach it.
Contact Listener Sponsor Development Director, Susan Sheldon, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on Challenge Grants.
Merchandise and Gift Certificate Donations
WORT accepts gift certificate and merchandise donations from area businesses to be used for our Annual Summer WORTstock Raffle. In addition, we use gift certificate donations for prizes at our Bowling event in the Fall, and at music events throughout the year. Donors get great promotion through on air announcements, WORT website posts, and in social media posts. It’s a great way to help WORT continue our great programming!
