WFIU finished a successful 2012 membership campaign on Monday, October 29, at 4 p.m. The on-air fundraiser, which spanned nine full days and continued for parts of the next two days, generated over $365,000 from donors across southern and central Indiana.
We reached and surpassed the goal, attaining a grand total of $369,684. And, once we include the money secured from our corporate partners who posed listener challenges throughout the drive, our campaign pulled in well over $380,000. The money raised helps pay for programming costs at the station, with membership support being the station’s single most reliable source of income.
If you made a financial gift to WFIU, then you helped secure in-depth news and cultural programming for another year. WFIU extends sincere gratitude to our corporate challengers, food donors, volunteers, and the thousands of listeners who support the station this and every year. We couldn’t have done it without you.
