WCQS Fund Drive

No Drive. No interruptions. Our campaign to meet our fall fundraising goal without interrupting programs is working! We have less than $30,000 to go to reach the goal.  $150,000 by September 10th means no Fall Fund Drive! No interruptions. Just the programs you love in their entirety.

We've decided to try something new. We think we can raise the funds necessary to support the station without interrupting the programs you love. Traditionally, WCQS interrupts programming to fundraise every Spring and Fall. Our Fall Drive is slated for September 10 - 17, but we're prepared to cancel it if listeners can raise $150,000 by September 10th.

Update! - 9:45 a.m 10/15/14. Listeners met the goal for the Brother Wolf Challenge! Brother Wolf will now receive $10,000 in life-saving veterinary services from Western Carolina Veterinary Surgery for animals in need! Thank you!

WCQS missed its goal during the Spring Membership Drive last month. It is essential that we meet our goals in order to continue to provide the programming you rely on every day. We are holding a one-day drive today to raise $10,000 to keep WCQS on track.

Make a contribution to WCQS today and you'll also be entered to win an iPad and you'll help help pay for the programming you rely on every day.

We know you want more uninterrupted programming and fewer days devoted to the membership drive. But we also know that membership is the single largest source of funding for the service we provide. So, let’s work together to accomplish all of our goals. For every $30,000 contributed by March 31st, our upcoming membership drive will be one day shorter. Let’s raise the money it takes to bring you the programming you count on – in less time.

Every $30,000 means a shorter drive. It can be a nine day drive, or a five day drive – or even a one day drive! The choice is yours.

Our thanks to the 2,400 listeners who supported WCQS this fall, helping us exceed our goal, raising more than $257,000. Every dollar pledged to WCQS helps us stay a strong, independent source for news, music and entertainment in Western North Carolina. Every dollar pledged during the drive is also being matched by Eblen Charities to provide heating assistance to people in need this winter.

Want to have some fun and do some good at the same time? Become a pledge drive phone volunteer! Our Fall Membership Drive is October 10 - 17.  WCQS phone volunteers take the incoming calls from listeners who call in to the station to make their contribution. It's a great way to show your support for WCQS and connect with other public radio fans.
