WRUW-FM to hold fundraising telethon April 9-15

Following a record-breaking telethon in 2011, campus radio station WRUW-FM looks to raise more money for the station during its weeklong telethon fundraiser April 9-15. This year marks the 45th year of WRUW on the airwaves.

Donations help fund the purchase and maintenance of music and technical equipment, including equipment in the on-air studios. They also help WRUW maintain phone lines, purchase new music, maintain its digital library and finance free events such as Studio-A-Rama. Money raised during the telethon covers more than half of WRUW’s operating costs.

All donations are tax-deductible. Pledge amounts at the $50, $60, $100 and higher will receive a special thank you, such as an anniversary T-shirt, pint glass, Tri-C Jazz Festival tickets, gift certificates and more.

To donate, call 368.2208 during the week of April 9-15 to make a secure donation by phone or donate online at www.wruw.org.
