Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who supported our end-of-fiscal year fundraising drive.

3,000 of you made a gift this September, and whether you gave $5 or $500, each and every one of you helped us close the gap on our budget deficit. Thank you for believing in the value of public television and for committing to be a supporter of KLRU.
