KASU'S Spring Fundraiser 2020
Even though KASU has had generous contributors and kind words emailed to us, we have not actualized our Spring Fundraiser that was planned March 30. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on funds from our listeners, Arkansas State University, our local underwriters, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Individual listeners contribute the majority of the funds we need for programming. That is why KASU has seasonal fundraisers. Due to the devastating tornado March 28 in Jonesboro and the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have waited to have our Spring Fundraiser until now.
Starting May 18, KASU will be directly asking listeners to contribute online. It will not be the normal fundraising event where we interrupt programming to broadcast "live" pleas for donations. There will be various messages throughout the day encouraging you to contribute IF you can. KASU will not have staff at our facility to answer the phone because the majority of us are working from home. That's why we have asked you to contribute online at kasu.org/give. Also, this fundraiser ends June 1--regardless of the funds accumulated.
KASU realizes these are difficult financial times, so we are asking you to carefully consider contributing. Please do what you can and help us continue to broadcast the music, news, arts & views.
If I can be of any assistance, email me at the address below, or call the office at 870-972-3486 and I will return your call as soon as I can.
As always, THANKS!
Development Director at KASU
