We’re officially in the 4-day countdown to 2018! This is a wonderful time of year when we reflect on what matters and gather with those who bring us joy. If KLRU brings YOU joy, NOW is the time to share your support. KLRU needs to raise $50,000 by December 31, and we absolutely cannot do it without YOU.
For an early New Year’s goal, make a resolution you can keep and become a KLRU Sustaining Member. You can be proud knowing your monthly donation does the most good, providing a revenue source that lets KLRU make long-term decisions for programming and community outreach. And if you give before January 1, your gift qualifies for a 2017 tax deduction!
When you give to KLRU, you are not only supporting quality television, from Call the Midwife to NewsHour to Austin City Limits to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood; YOU are bringing joy to Central Texas households who rely on our trusted, inspiring, non-commercial content. Your Sustaining Gift protects local public media now and into the future.
‘Tis the season to get your year-end charitable giving in order. One fantastic way to DOUBLE your impact for KLRU is to contribute via your company’s matching gift program.
There are hundreds of Central Texas employers who will match your 2017 gifts to KLRU. Check here to see if your company is on the list.
Your generosity will help KLRU make up the $50,000 we need to raise by December 31. Any dollars you give with an employer match will help us get there in the three weeks we have left. This is the time when you can stand up for public television as we prepare for 2018.
Thank you for dedication to public television and happy holidays!
P.S. Now through the end of the year, anyone who becomes a Sustainer at ANY amount or increases their monthly gift this month will receive our KLRU Fan Kit, with KLRU decals, a koozie and more! You can also grab the new KLRU baseball tee when you become a Sustaining Member at $10/month or make a one time gift of $120.
September 30 is the end of our fiscal year and we need your help to reach that date with a balanced budget. Please take a minute and join our Countdown Campaign to raise $115,000 in the next 7 days. As we celebrate 50 years of public television in Central Texas, we know that there are so many of you that value KLRU, but now we’re asking you to support us with a gift – any amount you can give will make a huge difference to KLRU right now.
KLRU is Austin’s only locally owned and operated television station. With over half of our support coming from individuals like you, we take very seriously our commitment to inspire – and be inspired by – everyone in Central Texas. We are public television so KLRU is your station.
I hope you’ll take this opportunity to reflect on how much you value KLRU’s commitment to keeping Austin entertained, informed and educated and join our Countdown Campaign right now by:
- Making your first gift ever to KLRU right now because your children love Sesame Street, Word Girl, and Dinosaur Train.
- Renewing your support of KLRU this year because you can’t live without new episodes of Masterpiece, Antiques Roadshow, and Doctor Who.
- Casting your vote for your favorite local programs like Central Texas Gardener, Overheard with Evan Smith, The Daytripper, and Arts in Context.
- Giving an additional gift to KLRU because your trust PBS Newshour, Frontline, and Washington Week.
- Telling your friends to support the Countdown Campaign because this is their station, too.
We are diligent stewards of our limited resources, consistently trimming expenses while at the same time preserving the strength of our content and community. Despite our best efforts, we’re approaching the end of our fiscal year with a deficit. We need your help, right now to reach our Countdown Campaign goal by September 30th.
Please join us and thank you!
