Spring Pledge Drive


WQLN Radio’s Spring Membership Campaign is on RIGHT NOW! Help us reach $70,000 quickly to avoid any program interruptions!

Each week, WQLN Radio reaches hundreds of thousands of people across our community through quality reporting, thoughtful commentary, soothing classical music, intelligent storytelling, and so much more. We believe in the power of public radio! And, this critical daily companion is only possible because of contributions from our members.

It's pledge time—right now!

The drive ends when we reach $70,000—so please renew your support today. Thank you!

Join us for the WQLN Sustainer Member Party!

Meet Jack Speer It was a smashing success last fall, so we've decided to do it again! Let's celebrate the end of the drive and the $70,000 goal reached with some food, drinks, giveaways, and a special visit from Jack Speer from NPR News! We'll welcome our sustaining members with an evening of fun and a chance to learn more about WQLN member benefits—like WQLN Passport.

Wednesday, April 24 from 5-7pm
WQLN Studios, 8425 Peach Street, Erie

Please RSVP by Friday, April 19 to sferrare@wqln.org or (814) 217-6040.

Help Us Reach Our Goal!

Give a Public Service Announcement

A gift of $250 or more to WQLN allows you to give EIGHT Public Service Announcements to a second non-profit organization of your choice!

$250 – 8 PSAs
$500 – 16 PSAs
$750 – 24 PSAs
$1000 – 40 PSAs

What are PSAs and why are they valuable?
A PSA (public service announcement) is a 30 second WQLN produced spot that airs on WQLN Radio. It allows a non-profit organization to tell about their mission or maybe an upcoming event.

Most non-profits have very limited marketing budgets…but they still need to get their message out to their constituents. Your gift of PSAs gives them an opportunity to promote themselves and tell their story.

NOTE: The non-profit must have local offices in our community. The PSA cannot be a fundraising spot.

Employer Matching Gift Program

Many corporations match the gifts their employees give to non-profits, such as WQLN. These matching programs have become part of many corporate giving initiatives to extend the reach of corporate giving, increase good public opinion, and to encourage employees to be actively involved in supporting their communities.

This program doubles the impact of your gift! It's easy, too! When you make your donation to WQLN Radio, just tell us your employer's name, or the employer that you are retired from, as some companies, like GE, will still match gifts from retirees. Once we process your information, we'll send you a letter if your employer matches, reminding you to visit their Human Resource department to finalize the match. It's that easy!

Last year, WQLN received over $40,000 in revenue from the Employer Matching Gifts Program!
