Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday, the national day of philanthropy that follows Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.
When you plan your #GivingTuesday contributions you think of the organizations that contribute to your life, I hope WEMU is among those that immediately come to mind.Delivering media that makes a daily impact, providing local and national programming that inform and inspire, and making a cultural impact with outstanding jazz, blues, and roots music, has always been our mission.
Today, I’m excited to share a very special opportunity to get involved this #GivingTuesday! Thanks to a generous legacy gift from one of WEMU's long time donors, we have a $20,000 matching gift to help us get to our goal of $50,000.
Your donation will be instantly doubled, meaning it will have twice as much impact on the essential news, music and cultural programming you and your neighbors count on from WEMU.
It’s a great way to share your support during this season of gratitude, and show your public radio pride with our special thank you gift; the WEMU 'winter special' of a black knit hat with WEMU on the front and NPR on the back, plus a WEMU ice scraper for $150.
You don't have to wait; you can make your #GivingTuesday gift now at wemu.org Or you can join in the excitement of our one day pledge drive by calling tomorrow at 888-299-8910. We'll have more special offers, check ins from our live jazz jam session and open house, and all kinds of excitement as we work to reach our $50,000 goal.
With gratitude and thanks,
I hope you'll be a part of this national day of philanthropy by giving as generously as you can.
