Help KLRU Amplify Austin on March 20-21!

An investment in KLRU is an investment in YOUR community! We are thrilled to be participating in the second annual Amplify Austin community-wide giving day, beginning Thursday, March 20 at 6pm and ending at 6pm Friday, March 21.

Amplify Austin, presented by I Live Here, I Give Here, is an initiative to increase philanthropy in Central Texas through online giving in a 24 hour period. Last year Amplify Austin, as a whole, raised over $2.8 million for the Central Texas community and this year their goal is to raise $4 million!

Last year, you helped KLRU raise over $12,000 from 130 people in the community – allowing us to provide:

  • 300 artists a place to share their creativity
  • 4,000 children with books and digital resources
  • 750 parents & teachers with hands-on educational workshops
  • 1,000 hours of Central Texas themed programming each year
  • 100+ events on civil discourse and cultural understanding

Our goal for 2014 is to raise $18,500 from 200 people in the community and we need your help to reach it!

Ways you can be involved in helping KLRU to reach our 2014 Amplify Austin goal:

  1. Save the Date & Give! Get out your calendar and mark March 20th at 6pm to give to KLRU through Amplify Austin. Visit klru.org to link to the Amplify Austin KLRU donation page, search for KLRU on the Amplify Austin site or directly visit KLRU’s Amplify Austin giving page.

  2. Share via Social Media! Last year, social networks were one of the primary mediums people used to share information about Amplify Austin and were then directed to give. Spread the word to your friends and family by liking/sharing/retweeting KLRU’s Amplify Austin posts on Facebook and Twitter or share why YOU support KLRU and why YOU think it’s important for your followers to support too!

  3. Email your networks! Spread the word to your friends, family and coworkers and share KLRU’s Amplify Austin donation page with them. Engaging in conversation about KLRU, Amplify Austin and philanthropy in Central Texas will increase awareness about KLRU’s mission and build an audience of support to help us continue to provide high quality, commercial free television to all of Central Texas.

KLRU is so excited to be a part of this special community-wide giving day and we hope you’re just as eager to participate in it as we are!
