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.
KLRU has already wrapped up our winter drive! We cut 10 days from our drive—in exchange for less on-air fundraising, KLRU relies on year-end gifts to make up the difference and head into the new year strong and ready to go!
Fewer on-air interruptions = ✔️
Amount KLRU still needs to raise by December 31 = $50,000
Year end is an ideal time to make final financial contributions and set new goals for next year’s giving. And that’s why KLRU wants to encourage you to become a Sustaining Member this month. Sustaining members make the most impact simply because monthly donations allow KLRU to plan ahead, knowing we have a steady revenue stream.
Already a KLRU Sustainer? Consider increasing your monthly gift. Remember that your generous support is the backbone of this public television station. We would not exist with you.
The resources we extend into the community come from your donation power. Your gift of any amount allows KLRU to give back, reach out and create a space for thoughtful discussion. Central Texas is merry and bright this season because of viewers like you!
And it’s LAST CHANCE for our winter drive thank you gifts. Donate now and receive your choice of thank you item—there are over 130 to choose from, including our popular KLRU Beatles tote, music from The Moody Blues, Rick Steves’ Europe and more!
