Other ways to support WRVO

Become a WRVO Program Underwriter: Join hundreds of local businesses and organizations in underwriting WRVO programming. More than a way of keeping excellent programming on the air, underwriters reach as many as 80,000 listeners each week on our network of ten transmitters spanning portions of 20 counties of upstate New York. Invite one of our program underwriting representatives to explain how you can take advantage of this exciting and strategic opportunity to expand awareness of your business or organization throughout the region. Click here for more information. WRVO's media kit is attached to this web page below.

Corporate Matching Gifts:  You may be able to double or triple the dollars you donate through employer matching.  Many companies match - some even double - employee contributions to non-profit organizations like WRVO. Contact us at 315-312-3690, or toll-free at 1-800-341-3690 to learn whether your company will match your gift, or check with your human resources office.  If your company does match, please ask your human resources officer for a matching gift form, fill it in and send it to WRVO.

Donate A Vehicle: All you need is a clear title, the keys and a note indicating your donation is for WRVO. Your car, motorcycle, boat or RV will be picked up from your driveway or wherever you choose. There's no need to transport your car at all! Insurance Auto Auctions, a local company, assists in paperwork, processing and pick up. You can give them a call any time at 315-699-2622 or find more information about vehicle donations here. You receive a tax deduction for your donation and WRVO receives the proceeds of the sale. It's that easy!

Include WRVO in your Estate: You can leave a living legacy - a strong financial foundation for WRVO that will ensure our ability to educate, inform, illuminate, and entertain well into the future.  Supporting the mission of the WRVO Stations can be a convenient and meaningful declaration of your partnership in assuring that high-quality public radio will serve central and Northern New York for years to come.

A bequest can be designed to meet your individual needs and preferences in an amount determined by you. Consult your attorney to discuss your plans. It is very easy to arrange a bequest to the WRVO Stations. Just add a brief amendment to your current document, or include WRVO when you rewrite your will.  For assistance, contact WRVO at 315-312-3690, or toll-free at 1-800-341-3690.
