Giving Tuesday Is Here!

Nov 27, 2018

It has arrived!  Giving Tuesday 2018, the national day of philanthropy, is underway.  We hope to have $50,000 in gifts and pledges by 7:00 p.m. tonight and you can help with your gift right now.

Our community is generous to many organizations and you will undoubtedly receive several appeals from various organizations today.  Washtenaw County is home to hundreds of non-profits in the arts and social service and every one is important.  Including WEMU, your community NPR station.

WEMU gives back to the community daily with programs and content that are relevant to you.  National news, information, and cultural programs from NPR.  Capital coverage from the Michigan Public Radio Network.  Award-winning local news and information from our local news team.  And top rated jazz and blues every day brought to you by local hosts, members of our own arts and cultural community.

Your gift today supports all of that and more.  Every local voice you hear on WEMU is paid with individual and corporate contributions from our local community.  

Today only you can pick up our special Giving Tuesday premium for a gift of $150: a 100% black cotton, long sleeved Henley shirt in adult sizes S-3XL.  Stop by in person and visit our jazz jam session from noon to 7:00 p.m. with Kurt Krahnke, Rick Roe, and Jesse Kramer leading the band.  We have holiday cookies, a hot chocolate bar, and the opportunity to hear some great music.  Drop a gift into our drop box or come up to the 4th floor and make it in person during our one-day pledge drive.

Whatever way you choose to make your gift to WEMU, please know how grateful we are for your support.  Your community NPR station depends on the community to survive, grow, and thrive.  Please make your gift today by calling 888-299-8910 or at the top of our webpage, click that donate button!

We thank you.
