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.
P.S. Anyone who becomes a Sustainer at ANY amount or increases their monthly gift by December 31 gets a KLRU Fan Kit, with KLRU decals, a koozie and more!
And don’t miss the last few days to grab the new KLRU baseball tee when you become a Sustaining Member at $10/month or make a one time gift of $120.
Did you enjoy the rainy day yesterday by staying inside and turning on KLRU? If so, you would have caught the incredible Andrea Bocelli all-star concert in Central Park and the encore presentation of the first episode of Downton Abbey – you can always count on KLRU for quality programming, enriching our lives with the finest in arts and culture.

We heard from so many of you this weekend and thanks to you we raised $75,995 towards our goal of $240,000 – if you gave a gift this weekend, THANK YOU!
If you’ve been waiting to make your gift this pledge drive, you might be interested in what we have coming up tonight on KLRU – we’ll be live in the studio during Antiques Roadshow with the final opportunity to get your tickets to the 2012 KLRU Antiques Appraisal Fair! If you haven’t secured your place yet at this fun event, you can donate now or call in tonight to do so!
