Announcing the $50,000 KLRU Board Challenge Match

Tyson Tuttle, Chair of the KLRU Board of Directors, announces a $50,000 Challenge Match to the Central Texas community from the KLRU Board of Directors. 

PBS has been a part of our household for years. Before our kids were born, Austin City Limits helped give us an introduction to Austin. As parents, PBS was the only channel on our TV with quality, educational television that entertained and stimulated our kids. And as people involved in the community, we’ve benefitted from news and public affairs, local and beyond.

KLRU brings quality, inspirational programming into your home and mine. KLRU tells stories about Austin that resonate here and elsewhere. And KLRU looks for ways to use stories and information to positively impact the region and this growing city we call “home”.

Your support allows KLRU to be an essential voice in Central Texas, and a lifeline for the entire community. And considering that the vast majority of KLRU’s support comes from Central Texas, it’s up to you, and me, to make sure KLRU can continue to provide the quality and diversity of programs and experiences we’ve come to expect.

This is why as the Chair of KLRU’s Board of Directors, I’m pleased to announce a $50,000 Board Challenge Match in support of this fundraising drive. If KLRU can raise $50,000, the Board of Directors will match it by making a generous $50,000 contribution, potentially bringing in $100,000 for the station. I encourage you to make your gift right now so we can meet this match by the end of this drive.

KLRU provides access to thoughtful and wide ranging programs that bring new ideas and experiences to our homes, and especially to our kids. Won’t you join me in supporting this organization that is dedicated to actively pursuing a better community?

Sincerely,

Tyson Tuttle
