We are 88% through our Winter 2016 Pledge Drive, WORT: Giving Aural Pleasure for 40 Years. Over 1000 generous listeners have helped us reach 80% of our goal.
If you have already pledged: thank you. You have invested in our community; in news that matters to you and music from genre experts.
If you haven’t had time to donate, or think that WORT doesn’t need your $30 or $50 or $500 donation, the truth is that we rely on you to pay our monthly bills. Please take a few minutes to pledge now, either online or with one of our phone answerers at 608-256-2001.
Donations from this drive will pay part of WORT’s monthly expenses: electricity, phones, salaries, transmitter fees, satellite fees, heating and air conditioning.
Expenses that continue during the 46 weeks a year that we don’t have pledge drives.
Compared to other radio stations our costs are small. In fact, we’ve decreased our costs by 10% in the last year, to run as efficiently and effectively as we can.
But no matter how far we trim our costs, it comes down to you. We depend on you for 70% of our income.
We need a strong finish these last three days of the drive to hit our goal of $95,000.
Why give? Because you don’t want to tune in to 89.9 FM and hear static or a commercial station playing the same thing you hear on 3 other stations.
Please make your pledge today. If you’ve already donated and have a few extra bucks, please consider pledging again.
