KLRU is in the second day of our 5-day online giving drive, and we have some exciting news! Longtime supporters, Claire & Carl Stuart, have very kindly promised a $10,000 matching gift in support of #yourklru. That means your gift of any amount will be matched dollar-for-dollar from this challenge, effectively doubling your generosity in an instant!
Carl Stuart appreciates how “KLRU and PBS open up the world to all of us in an entertaining and objective fashion…[and] helps me learn more than I otherwise would.” And we know so many of you agree with Carl’s sentiment because as your only community-supported public television station, we know you rely on KLRU to help you explore your world and make connections in your community every day. Bringing you the best quality programming that educates, entertains and inspires, KLRU is creating a stronger community one story at a time.That’s why strengthening your investment is so important.
With just 3 days to go, we still need to raise another $35,000 to meet our $50,000 goal! Will you join us to give, engage and inspire the Central Texas community through your gift to KLRU today?
