Thank You for Amplifying KLRU!

ThankYou1213

We did it! Because of YOU, we were able to surpass our goal and raise $20,627 from over 280 people in our community during the Amplify Austin campaign last week. Not only did we surpass our goal, but you helped Amplify Austin surpass their goal and raise over $5.7 million for the Austin area community. It is your generosity that gives us the ability to continue building a stronger Central Texas through quality public television and vital community services. Thank you!

In fact, your gift will help KLRU provide over 35,000 hours of free, high quality programming in the areas of education, arts and culture and public issues to everyone in Central Texas this year. And we go beyond broadcast: last year, over 50,000 people attended KLRU tapings, screenings, workshops and other events and educational activities. With on-air and online content serving 18 counties, KLRU is one of the only nonprofits in Central Texas with the potential to touch nearly every household, every day.

Your gift is an investment in this community. Thank you for your incredible support.
