Show Your Support! WVFS 2016 Pledge Drive
For only the seventh time in nearly 30 years of broadcast, we are hosting our Quadrennial Pledge Drive from 6:00am Friday, April 8 through 8:00am Friday, April 15. If you’d like to show your support, you can call during the drive (850-644-1837 or 850-644-3871) to share your stories and make a pledge, or simply log onto wvfs.fsu.edu to donate. At most donor levels (as allowed by IRS regulations), we are offering—as a thank you for your generosity—a selection of limited edition premiums that feature the station’s iconic winged logo. Most donations are tax deductible. Your donations go directly toward station equipment upgrades and operating costs, and are more essential than ever in the face of recent budget cuts ($12,000 in the last few years alone). Past donations have helped to upgrade power (from 270 watts to 2700 watts to 7000 watts!), purchase a new broadcast transmitter, complete and maintain a multitrack recording studio, repair equipment in emergencies, and provide students with professional development opportunities. Our goal for the 2016 Drive is $30,000—a goal we are excited to meet and exceed!
