KLRU Brings The World To Your Neighborhood!

Happy 50th Anniversary to
Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on PBS!

It’s a beautiful day in the Central Texas neighborhood… because of YOU!

There’s a lot to celebrate this March at KLRU! We’re six days into our Spring Fund Drive and on March 20th we commemorate Mister Rogers’ birthday and his 50 groundbreaking years on public television.

The man who taught millions of young viewers that they should be loved exactly as they are has nurtured kindness in generations. Mister Rogers’ thoughtful lessons emphasized the great importance of a safe, educational space like PBS—made available for free to every American. KLRU is proud to be a part of this legacy.

If Mister Rogers inspired your love of PBS…if you believe that the quality content on KLRU is worth funding and protecting…consider making a gift during the KLRU Spring Drive!

Make Your Year End Gift Today!

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.
