Your generous donation to KLRU on #GivingTuesday helped us exceed our $50,000 goal and raise over $60,000! Thank you!
The momentum from your gift was part of a global chain reaction – millions gave back in a single day, making a huge impact on non-profits worldwide. YOUR community-supported public television station would not exist without viewer support, and because of you, KLRU can continue our mission.
Meeting our #GivingTuesday goal allows KLRU to keep our commitment for a short winter fund drive with minimal on-air interruption. In the longer term, we can continue supporting more local productions and planning for new content. KLRU is committed to providing Central Texas with inspiring, educational and entertaining programming. Your gift makes this possible.
There’s still time to join KLRU for #GivingTuesday. TODAY is the day when families, businesses and individuals from around the globe make a difference by raising awareness and funds together. KLRU has until midnight tonight to raise $12,000 more to reach our $50,000 goal! Why donate today? #GivingTuesday dollars have the biggest impact—there’s heightened awareness around the community and beyond, which means fundraising momentum is on our side. Better yet, when you give your gift right now, your dollars are DOUBLED because of a generous challenge match from Austin Community CollegeDistrict.
For every dollar received until 11:59 p.m. tonight, ACC will contribute the same amount up to $2,500, potentially helping KLRU bring in a total of $5,000!
KLRU is a window to the world, available to everyone for free. And we’re an important voice for the public interest, because we don’t have advertisers. We are public television, supported by and in service to YOU. Can I count on your generosity now to help redefine the giving spirit and bring the best in educational, entertaining, and inspiring programming to all Central Texans?

Amy Wong Mok of the Asian American Cultural Center believes that media doesn’t have to be divisive. As a KLRU board member, she’s proud to support programming that lives up to her values.
“I like to use [as an] acronym: the Chinese chi,” she says. “Throughout KLRU or PBS programming, they have these three characters, civility, humanity and integrity.”
In fact, the need for civil, trustworthy reporting led to the creation of KLRU’s Decibel earlier this year. In addition to national PBS news and public affairs programs, KLRU knows local audiences also want to watch local stories.
Hosted by Judy Maggio, Decibel produces television specials and short videos that help connect viewers to complex local issues while highlighting the real people whose lives are impacted by current events.
Amy says this kind of reporting can actually help strengthen rather than divide—because the community can’t grow until people really see, hear and feel the things that lead others to think differently.
“I think diversity can only enrich our life,” Amy says. “[KLRU] is a community in the virtual space, and I think it’s very important.”
As a supporter and fan of quality public television, we want to thank you with more of what you love.
