Spring 2014 On-Air Fund Raising
Yellowstone Public Radio welcomes your online pledge of support. When you support Yellowstone Public Radio, your dollars support the programming you love and the day-to-day operation of YPR.
YPR extends a very big THANK YOU to all who participated in the success of our Spring on-air fund raising week. By Sunday evening, April 13, 1521 pledges totaling $190,628 put us over our minimum goal in a down-to-the-wire finish. Thanks to some generous last-minute matching funds and a phenomenal response from our listeners, we raised more than $43,400 on Sunday alone, shattering all previous records for total amount raised on a single day. YPR also thanks the dozens of volunteers who answered phones and stuffed envelopes and the businesses and individuals who donated food and beverages throughout the week. YPR deeply appreciates the hard work of our volunteers and the generous support from our community of listeners that made our on-air fund raising week a success.
You may have heard YPR’s invitation to “become a sustaining member.” It’s a nice sentiment, but what does it mean and why is it so important to the longevity of Yellowstone Public Radio?
Sustaining members make an ongoing, monthly commitment to public radio through electronic funds transfer (EFT). Sustaining members provide a strong and reliable cash flow, leaving YPR to focus on adding new members during the on-air drives. Sustaining members also saves money. In fiscal year 2013, YPR spent more than $8,000 on postage for renewal notices and monthly pledge statements. We also spent more than $6,200 printing forms, envelopes, and return envelopes. Sustaining members don’t need notices or postage because it’s all done automatically and electronically. Becoming a sustaining member will help reduce these costs substantially!
EFT processing is less expense to YPR. Credit and Debit card payments require merchant fees – an expense that adds up.
As a sustaining member, you control how much you give to YPR. An electronic funds transfer can be as little as $5.00 per month or as much as you choose. You decide.
For membership or account information, please email email@example.com or call 406-657-2974 or (800) 441-2941.
