KLRU is so proud to have been a part of Amplify Austin, the first ever community-wide day of online philanthropy, raising $2.8 million for over 300 Central Texas nonprofits! We’d like to extend a special thanks to those of you that participated and donated to KLRU, helping us raise over $12,000 from over 100 donors in just 24 hours. Your gift provides this community with 24 hours of educational, entertaining, and inspirational programming both on air and online. KLRU, KLRU-Q, Create and V-Me combined add up to 35,040 hours of programming a year, giving all Central Texans the chance to explore new ideas, new worlds and new possibilities. Thank you for supporting what was a great day of giving for KLRU and a phenomenal day of giving for the Austin community.
KLRU helps you explore, learn, and do more. When you donate to KLRU, your gift is much more than financial support, it’s the gift of discovery to everyone in your community.

Be sure to save the date, because starting at 7 pm on March 4, we’re asking Central Texans to hop on to AmplifyATX.org and show the rest of the world just how charitable this city can be. KLRU is very excited to be a part of this FIRST ever annual online giving festival. Be sure to check out this video about Amplify Austin, like KLRU and Amplify Austin on Facebook and follow KLRU and Amplify Austin on Twitter. We’re sure you’ll be just as eager to participate in the big day as we are!
As we prepare for our biggest pledge drive of the year in March, we want to take this opportunity to thank you. KLRU is community supported public television and we wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the extreme generosity from the people of Central Texas – viewers like you!
We appreciate the work it takes for you to donate – from picking up the phone or going to the website, making a pledge online or in the mail. Because we value your time and your commitment, we want to make it as easy as possible to support KLRU which is why we want to invite you to become a KLRU Green Member!
As a KLRU Green Member, you join a caring group of viewers who provide us with dependable financial support on a continuing monthly basis. Starting at only $5/month you’ll:
- Enjoy the convenience of automatic payment of your Green Member gifts.
- Enjoy the satisfaction of knowing your support is helping to reduce KLRU’s administrative costs. The cost of postage, thank you gifts, and printing adds up – but as a Green Member your support is efficient and sustainable.
- Be in control. You can change or stop your payments at any time.
- Be in the know. You’ll receive only the most important communication from KLRU in the form of a mothly eNewsletter. We also remove you from all mail and email lists so you’re not asked to give during pledge drive campaigns.
- Always have an active membership.
- Spread your support out over the year making generosity easier on your budget and giving KLRU the security of a steady, reliable stream of income.
By becoming a KLRU Green Member, you can help us transform the way our station raises money to focus on what you demand of us: building a stronger community through high-quality, commercial-free programming for everyone.
