When organizations work together through teamwork and collaboration, exceptional things happen. This is one of the reasons Streets Alive of Lee County, Inc. and BikeWalkLee, along with 60 other nonprofit friends in the region, have partnered with WGCU Public Media for their October “Your Community” Radio Pledge Drive.
If you’re unfamiliar, a couple times a year WGCU turns to the community to raise the necessary funds to keep public radio programming on the air. These “pledge drives” are critical to WGCU’s operations and thousands of people from our region donate money.
Here’s the fun part! On Tuesday, Oct. 21st from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. BikeWalkLee's Dr. Cindy Banyai will be live on air on WGCU FM, raising funds for Southwest Florida’s award-winning public radio station. In return, WGCU has offered to help us augment our marketing budget by awarding us with free radio promos that we can use to promote both Streets Alive and BikeWalkLee events and missions throughout the next year.
You can help us receive these free radio spots!
Just call in anytime during the pledge campaign (October 17-24) and make a pledge of $250 and (Streets Alive of Lee County, Inc. and BikeWalkLee will receive EIGHT radio spots! Pledges of $500 earn us 16 spots; your $750 gift earns 24, and so forth. Your gift will support our local treasure, WGCU Public Radio, and at the same time provide us with valuable marketing opportunities that we might otherwise not be able to afford.
WGCU-FM can be found at 90.1 on the FM Dial (91.7 FM on Marco Island), is streamed live on WGCU.org, or can be accessed through the WGCU mobile app. You can make your pledge of support by calling 1-800-533-9428 or by pledging online at WGCU.org. Just make sure that you select as the nonprofit you’d like to support with free radio promos! Tune in, make a pledge, and we'd love to thank you live on the air.
