On September 15th 2014, WDRT 91.9 FM, Community Radio in Viroqua, will kick off it’s Fall pledge drive, “4 Years, 4 Good, 4 You” and also celebrate its fourth birthday. Wednesday, September 17th, is WDRT’s mark of broadcasting twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week for four years. With over sixty percent of WDRT’s programming being produced by close to 70 local volunteers, WDRT is cultivating community by airing grass roots radio, radio of and by our neighbors, radio from the ground up.
As a non-commercial, non-profit organization, WDRT relies solely upon listener supporters and business supporters for it’s operational budget. Pledge drives and business sponsorship via underwriting are vital to the organization. The fall pledge drive is the largest fundraising event of the year.
In honor WDRT’s fourth birthday celebration, Organic Valley in La Farge, WI is offering our community a challenge of matching a $5,000 gift. Organic Valley will match each donation made on September 15th, the first day of the “4 Years, 4 Good, 4 You” Pledge Drive, up to a total of $5,000. With this gift, WDRT will be able to leverage a dollar for every dollar pledged on September 15th. Organic Valley has offered the challenge grant to the community for the third year. According to Vicky Reeves, Public Affairs Manager at Organic Valley, “At Organic Valley, we’re always thrilled to work together with folks in our own community to support local projects, and one of our longstanding favorites is WDRT. Every year we offer a matching grant and hope it will inspire all of you to give your support too! Whatever amount you can donate, we’ll match up to $5,000. Hats off to the WDRT community!”
