Spring Pledge Drive

WQLN PBS NPR • Learning Brought to Life

Whether it’s daily reporting of the news and issues that matter to you, or transporting you to a live Erie Philharmonic concert from the safety of your own home, WQLN NPR brings learning to life! Every day you listen and you learn. Whether you listen for a few minutes a day, or a few hours… you count on WQLN NPR. And we count on contributions from members like you.

It’s pledge time—right now!

Thanks to sustainers and early donors, we’re already well on our way to raising the needed funds to pay for the programming you love! We still need to raise $50,000, and as soon as we do, the drive is over—period. Please renew your support today.

Donating today means you can look forward to a shorter drive. Please give us a call at 814-866-5454 or donate online today! Thank you!

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!
