It’s called ‘Foneless February’, and for years the silent fundraising campaign has been a hit with listeners of public radio station WRVO. The end result of the low-key effort is less hours of on-air fundraising in March. This year, the spring fundraiser will be shortened by five days thanks to over $90,000 in early contributions.
Matt Seubert, Listener Support Coordinator for WRVO and its three affiliated stations, says they hope to raise over $40,000 in additional contributions through on-air phone pledges to help meet this year’s budget.
The on-air fund drive begins tomorrow.
