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.

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.

Increase Your Sustaining Monthly Amount

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!

P.S. 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.
