We may have fallen short during our spring membership drive earlier this spring, but listeners rallied for our 1-Day Drive! The drive was a tremendous success, raising $27,000 and helping WCQS meet its spring goal and keeping WCQS on track.
Listener support is WCQS's largest and most reliable source of funding. Listener support pays for the programs you rely on. Listener support keeps WCQS a strong and independent source for news, music and entertainment in Western North Carolina.

Mind The Gap. It originated in the London Underground and has been adopted by transit systems around the world.

Our thanks to everyone who pledged to help shorten the Spring Membership drive and to those of you who gave during the drive. Unfortunately the on-air drive fell far short of its goal. We still have $40,000 left to raise to reach our $275,00. Meeting the goal is imperative to continue to provide the programming you rely on.
