You spoke and we listened! We’re kicking off our Winter Fundraising Drive this week, but we want you to know that we’re doing things a little bit different this time around.
In an effort to keep more of your favorite PBS programs on-air during fundraising periods, this drive, we’re pledging to provide one full week of your regularly scheduled primetime shows, like Antiques Roadshow, Nova and Masterpiece Theater. It’s a full week of YOUR FAVORITES and we’re counting on you to do your part to support the shows you rely on each week, helping us transform the way we fundraise on-air and in turn, making this fundraising effort a success.
Best of all, we have an exciting challenge that begins today – a $25,000 match from a generous donor of KLRU! Your gift of any amount will be matched dollar for dollar from this challenge, effectively doubling your generosity in an instant.
Make a one-time gift or an ongoing, monthly gift online now to take advantage of this generous donor match!
The December pledge drive is here and as we approach the end of the year, KLRU needs to raise $240,000 to continue the kind of quality programming and community engagement that Central Texas has come to expect for almost 50 years!
Whether you can donate $1 or $100, your support matters – we have so many ways to thank you for your donation and are excited to present some truly special programs over the next few weeks for your enjoyment!
- Through out the pledge drive, we are going to be giving away t-shirts to folks who comment on our #whyKLRU blog, Facebook and Twitter posts. Everyday, we’ll give away a prize package that includes 5 t-shirts featuring KLRU Q, Central Texas Gardner, Austin City Limits, PBS Newshour, and KLRU-TV – all you have to do is share a comment, a story, a question and you’ll be entered to win! We’ll pick winners everyday, so comment often!
All these could be yours, just let us know #whyKLRU!
- Tonight is the PBS Arts Festival premier of Andrea Bocelli: One Night in Central Park - a beautiful concert made even more special by the exclusive offer for KLRU viewers to see Andrea Bocelli in concert when he comes to Austin in February. Tune in tonight at 8pm (or catch the repeat, Sunday evening at 6pm) to find out how you can receive tickets to the show!
- On Sunday evening at 8:30pm, we are going to be live in the KLRU studios with the first episode of Downton Abbey! Whether you’ve seen it before or have been dying to see what everyone’s been talking about, you won’t want to miss this evening. We’ll have special thank you gifts, with the opportunity to see an advanced screening of Downton Abbey Season 2 which starts in January 2012.
