As events this year have reminded us so forcefully, no matter what’s happening in the world, around the country, or here in our own community, access to reliable and thorough news coverage is essential for a healthy democracy to properly function.
Independent sources of trusted and accurate information like WRVO Public Media are more crucial than ever. Whatever lies ahead, you can be sure WRVO will continue, as always, to be your essential source of news, information, and entertainment for you and your entire community.
If you have donated previously, it may have been a specific moment that inspired you to act. Perhaps it was a story about education or medicine, an interview with a fascinating thinker, or an insightful conversation that led to new understanding. Perhaps it was vital information you gained from our ongoing special coverage, an invigorating diversion you needed or a story that brought an unexpected reassurance that you were not alone in facing a challenge.
Whatever your reasons then, they’re still here -- along with hundreds more including our commitment to regional news coverage and the coronavirus live blog. There’s one singular force that makes everything you hear on WRVO possible: YOU. That’s why your support is so important and why we’re asking you to support the station you rely on.
Whether it's “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” “Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me,” or “Tuned to Yesterday” – the shows that you rely on, the shows you enjoy, will always be here when YOU need them. That’s because ongoing support from listeners like you provide the largest portion of the WRVO budget.
When we suspended fundraising in March, we were still $50,000 short of our goal, and that's what we'll be trying to raise over the next few days. We know our dedicated listeners are up to the task to help us reach our goal. Whether you are renewing your membership or becoming a first-time donator, your contribution will make a difference now.
Donate during our spring fundraiser. Call (800) 341-3690 with a donation today or donate online. We thank you for standing by us during this time.
