You may have noticed that WKAR's fundraising campaign began on Thursday. We're trying something new this year. Instead of having our regular 16-day campaigns four times a year, we are hoping to have those events go only eleven days.
You might say, "Don't you need the money?" and the answer is "Yes! We do!" Our goal is to do a better job of reaching out to more WKAR viewers with the opportunity to become WKAR supporters -- making WKAR and public broadcasting stronger in our community.
WKAR was selected by members of the University Club of MSU to compete in their "Big Bang-Quet" $10,000 Community Charity Challenge. WKAR is one of 26 mid-Michigan organizations asking the public for their votes to help us win a $10,000 credit towards a fundraising event held in the University Club's newly renovated dining room.
The program is conducted by the University Club of MSU in conjunction with the Capital region Community Foundation (CRCF) and sponsored by the MSU Federal Credit Union.
Gifts to WKAR are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Until December 31, 2011 gifts to public broadcasting are eligible for a State of Michigan Tax Credit. The credit expires on December 31, 2011.
