Why KLRU? What's your answer?

Why KLRU? Whether you watch Sesame Street every morning with your kids, enjoy the drama of Masterpiece on Sunday evenings, or get gardening advice from Central Texas Gardener, you probably have your own answer to the question: Why KLRU?

In the next 17 days, KLRU needs to raise $240,000 to provide the PBS programs and local productions required to answer the needs of 1.7 million people in Central Texas.

We hope you will make a donation, and also share your reason for supporting KLRU at our Facebook page, or on Twitter – using the hashtag #whyKLRU.

We’ve also created a series of videos, starring your friends and neighbors, asking them to answer the question: Why KLRU? We hope the videos inspire you to let us know your reason, and inspire you to support our work with a donation.

Thank you for watching and supporting KLRU!
