Waldo Gave, Can’t yoU?

This poodle is showing his public media pedigree by posing a matching challenge of $25,000 during the month of May to other #PubMediaPets! Donate a minimum gift of $10 or more to submit a favorite photo of your pet! We would love to get a photo of your fur baby (or non-furry pet) enjoying WGCU-TV| PBS or WGCU-FM | NPR.  All photos will be featured on WGCU.org and WGCU social media pages. Give here or click below to get in on the fun while supporting PBS and NPR programming in our community.


Show off your #PubMediaPet!

Donate now and you could win a shout-out for your furry, flying, or four-legged friend!

Sure, you know your pet is the cutest, but how about letting the world know? Give a donation of any amount to WGCU and you’re automatically entered to win a special shout-out in honor of your fuzzy, feathered, or scaly family member!

Donations of $60 ($5/month) or more will receive a BONUS thank you gift: A WGCU branded bandana for your #PubMediaPet to show off around town!
