Today, we pledge

88.9 KETR's listeners and supporters are in a mad dash to raise the last $40,000 of this year's federally-mandated $100,000 goal by the end of August. Today's Summer One-Day Drive goal: $5,000.

Please make your contribution now - it only takes 2 minutes!

The good news is that the station has managed, though corporate support, successful fall and spring membership campaigns, and some very generous individuals (writing checks to the tune of $1,000 and $5,000) to raise nearly $60,000 this year so far!

As always, incentive gifts are available when you make an online contribution. New this year, you can also sponsor a day of programming on 88.9!
