KRCC’s Summer 2012 Membership Drive is just around the corner. Your contribution sustains KRCC. Without you and your financial support, KRCC’s civil, intelligent, and in-depth conversations that you rely on would not be possible.

Members like you provide the bulk of KRCC’s financial support. Contributions from members of the station amount to $700,000 annually, or about half of KRCC’s operating funds. We’re not lyin’ when we say that KRCC is a Member-Supported Public Service!

Our membership drive begins Saturday, June 9th. We want to shorten the length of this membership drive; we can with your help. We’ve noticed that a lot of folks tend to renew their memberships during our on-air drives. We wondered: what if all these folks renewed before the drive? We could shorten the drive by many days! With that in mind, we encourage you to renew now and help us shorten our time interrupting the programs you count on.

New this summer, when you renew your membership before June 1st, your name automatically goes into a drawing for a new Apple iPad*. The drawing for the winner happens June 5th. Another great reason to renew early!

I hope you’ll take time today to send your contribution and renew your KRCC membership. Help us shorten the membership drive and automatically be entered in a drawing for a new iPad! We work really hard to be your source for news, music, and community information in the region. Your contribution ensures that KRCC thrives!

Thank you,

 

Delaney Utterback
KRCC General Manager
