WAMC Northeast Public Radio will begin its first fund drive of the year on Monday, February 3rd with a record breaking amount in the “locked box” of over $400,000.
“Everyone at WAMC is feeling the love of our community,” says WAMC’S President and CEO Alan Chartock. “If we all work hard at this, we can set an all time record for a million dollar fund drive. We hope everyone will join us because they know what the station means to them.”
The money raised will support the station’s award-winningprogramming andthe day-to-day operationsof the station.
The fund drive will begin on Monday, February 3rd and run from 6 a.m. through 9 p.m. every day until the goal is reached. Listeners may also make contributions before, during and after the fund drive at WAMC’s secure website. Beginning at 6 a.m. on February 3, listeners can phone in at 800-323-9262.
Many local, regional and national businesses and inpiduals help the station raise their funds and show their continued support of WAMC by generously donating items, food and services for on-air giveaways and drawings. Plus a fund drive would not be complete without mention of the hundreds of wonderful volunteers who will once again donate their time to answer telephones during the drive. WAMC is always looking for volunteers and donators. If you would like to volunteer your time or if your business would like to make a donation for the station to use as a pledge incentive during the fund drives, please contact Fund Drive Director Felicia Berke at (x171), firstname.lastname@example.org or Assistant Fund Drive Coordinator Keren Carmeli at (X189), email@example.com.
