Spring is here, and the Spring Pledge Drive is also here

It’s that time of year again — the Annual WESU Spring Pledge Drive is back in an effort to support another community driven radio season! However, this pledge drive is different than any other that we have conducted over the past 10 years. This pledge drive will close out a capital campaign that started at the beginning of 2014, when we kicked off WESU’s landmark 75th anniversary year. Meeting our pledge goal this spring will enable us to utilize funds raised in this capital campaign towards a few different studio updates — which include: a new audio mixing console in our air studio, technical improvements that will strengthen our infrastructure, and equipment to better accommodate live in-studio performances and group discussions. Additionally, we might be able to purchase equipment that will enable WESU to broadcast from remote locations.

Following our successful and exhilarating 75th anniversary year, we hope we can again count on you to help us keep the momentum going this spring as we bring a close to our capital campaign. We are pleased to offer two awesome new T-shirt designs, as well as some changes to our online giving system that we hope will improve your donation experience. Thanks again for your past support of WESU. You are part of a relatively small but very important group of listeners who collectively ensure WESU remains a resource for all. You can donate here at www.wesufm.org/pledge or by sending your check to WESU Radio, 45 Broad St, 2nd fl, Middletown, CT 06457.
