WHUP is holding our annual Fall Fund-A-Thon from Monday, October 24 through Sunday, October 30, and we’re looking to the many people who appreciate our eclectic mix of locally produced music and news shows to help see us through the end of this year and into 2023. It’s also our seventh birthday, so please help us celebrate by making a donation today!
The goal for the Fund-a-Thon is to raise $10,000 to cover operating expenses for the next six months and – news flash! – make our first hire, a part-time volunteer coordinator who will help us increase the capacity of WHUP to better serve the community. Like many non-profit community broadcasters, WHUP is feeling the effects of inflation and supply-chain challenges for electronic equipment, and a donation of any amount small or large will help defray the cost of those and other cost increases – in fact, more than 80 percent of our annual revenue comes from you, our valued listeners.
One great way to help support WHUP is to become a member of our community radio station for a one-time contribution of $120 or a recurring donation of just $10 a month. The majority of WHUP’s annual revenue comes from our members, so consider joining our exclusive team of supporters today.
Throughout Fund-A-Thon week we’ll be featuring the voices of folks in the community who have been part of our efforts for the past year – our DJs & other volunteers, a sampling of our many in-studio guests, local business owners and musicians from around the Triangle, all of whom understand the importance of an independent community radio station and will be asking you to share their enthusiasm by contributing to the cause.
WHUP is an all-volunteer non-commercial station that primarily serves the greater Triangle with an eclectic mix of locally produced music, news and public affairs programming with an emphasis on live in-studio sessions and amplifying community voices from across the spectrum. In any given week we have listeners in more than 30 states and 20 countries. But whether you live in Hillsborough, the Triangle or anywhere in the world, if you listen to WHUP and appreciate what we do, please help us reach our goal and stay alive by making a donation at whupfm.org/contribute.
Thanks in advance from all of us at WHUP!
