With so much outside noise, you know you can tune in to WGCU to keep the outside chatter to a minimum. That’s why we’re asking you to support WGCU Public Media today, because when you do, you are supporting great performances, interesting conversations, and unique local programs you can’t find anywhere else.

YOU make the difference! Give now.

Silence is golden. Support WGCU Public Media and keep program interruptions to a minimum.

We are trying something new – a quiet approach to fundraising on both radio and TV!  No live pitching on radio and no postponements in June to our television programming*. Just brief messages within our regular program breaks, to ask you to please support WGCU with a financial gift during this Membership Drive. We know the silent approach to fundraising can and will work on radio, but only when you respond with a pledge of support. Similar to radio, only YOU can make this unique fundraising concept a success on TV too! If you respond right now, and this works, you can look forward to more mission-based, quality PBS programming at the same time you depend on each day. Getting what you expect when you tune us in on both radio and TV – what a novel idea. Help us reinvent our fundraising model!

Quietly support our efforts now. Keep Public Media strong by supporting WGCU today.

Thank you!
