Thanks for your support
Thanks to every one of you who participated in our spring 2015 membership drive. Thanks to YOUR contributions, we raised more than $500,000 to support hand-picked music that reflects the Austin music experience and independent local and national journalism.
Our semi-annual fund drive began on April 7 and ended a day early — April 14 — thanks to a Buy Back initiative in which listeners bought back a day of the on-air fund drive by raising $125,000 before the start of the drive.
Here are some fast facts about the spring 2015 membership drive:
- 50% of donations came from Sustaining Members who help us save thousands of dollars in postage, paper and administrative costs, and allow us to invest more of their contributions into news and music programming.
- We welcomed 1,000 new members to our family
- We saw a marked increase in the number of Leadership Circle and business matching pledges.
- 60 volunteers came into our studios during the drive to make THANK YOU calls or write THANK YOU postcards
As you know, more than 90 percent of our funding comes from local listeners and business. So THANK YOU for supporting programming that keeps Central Texans informed, inspired and connected.
