WRIR's Fall 2020 Fund Drive is currently underway -- we're working to raise $40,000 by Wednesday October 28 to make sure Richmond's "sound of surprise" continues to inform, inspire, delight and surprise you for a second 16 years (our first broadcast day was January 1, 2005 so we'll be turning 16 soon) and more beyond that.
Thank you for your previous donations to Richmond Independent Radio; I'm writing to encourage you to contribute once again this fall, if you can. You can make that donation in less than two minutes by clicking this link: wrir.org/donating.
Many of the folks receiving this message have already donated during this drive or are monthly sustaining members -- thank you to all of you for keeping 97.3 FM, Richmond's "tower of low power," on the radio and internet airwaves! If you've been waiting until the end of the drive to contribute -- well, now's the time. We're getting close to our $40,000 goal, and that means we need your help on the drive's last three days to push us across the finish line.
I'll be on the air Monday October 26 at 3 PM with a fund drive edition of Global A Go-Go. It's the first time I've ever pre-recorded a fund drive show (COVID-19 is ensuring that there are a lot of first-times in all of our lives) -- it's two hours of inspiration and motivation from yours truly, featuring some of my favorite music including a bunch of songs and artists that I closely identify with this radio program. Please tune in and donate!
Thank you so much for your support in the past, and I hope WRIR can count on you once again in Fall 2020. Again, the place to visit to make your donation is wrir.org/donating, or simply visit our website at wrir.org and start filling out the form on the home page. Long live Richmond Independent Radio!
