Dear Converge Radio Listener,
We’re writing you today tell you about the impact you can make at Converge Radio 99.9.
You’ve probably heard that today is Giving Tuesday. So, what does that mean?
Giving Tuesday is a global movement that encourages people to make a difference in their communities by participating in charitable giving. In the midst of the busy holiday season, we hope you will take a moment to reflect upon how much Converge Radio enriches your daily life. Today, we ask you to consider purchasing a gift membership for the music lover in your life so they can enjoy all the benefits of a Converge membership.
Do you like what you’re hearing on Converge Radio? Maybe we give you something to look forward to during your commute, or throughout your day at the office. Perhaps you’ve downloaded our Converge Radio App for iPhone or Android so you can take us wherever you go. However you listen to us, we hope we’re making your day better, each and every day.
By supporting Converge Radio, you help us with transmission costs, plus funding our work on projects like Sounds of Eau Claire, more live broadcasts, as well as radio dramas.
Our Autumn Member Drive begins today, on Giving Tuesday, and we have a goal of adding 200 new members to the Converge Radio family. If you haven’t become a member yet, we hope you will do so by visiting ConvergeRadio.orgor by calling us at 715.471.0251.
If you join at the $10 / month or $120 / year level– we’ll invite you to one of our next Converge Radio sponsored shows. Our next one is THIS THURSDAY at Xpeditions Cafe in Bloomer with J.E. Sunde (more info), just mention this email and you can be our guest!
All new members will be entered into drawings for incredible prizes like two tickets to the Trampled By Turtles show on January 13, 2019 at the new Pablo Center at the Confluence in Eau Claire.
Already a Converge Radio member? We ask that you make an additional gift here, or increase your monthly sustaining membership here. (And yes, you’ll be entered into the drawing for those great prizes, too).

Does Converge Radio receive tax money?
No, we receive zero of your tax dollars from organizations like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. So, without listener support Converge Radio cannot sustainably carry on their operations.
Are gifts to Converge Radio Tax Deductible?
Yes, all gifts to Converge Radio are made through our parent organization the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire Foundation. Additionally, acknowledgement letters are provided for your tax purposes.
Do you prefer one-time or sustaining donations?
Because of the predictable funding of sustaining donations, we do appreciate those gifts. Sustainers not only keep our fundraising budgets low, they also diminish our need for pledge drives which we hear makes people happy.
Though, we are grateful for gifts of any type or size.
How often will you do pledge drives?
Our hope is to keep our pledge drives to once a year. Sustaining memberships will make this possible.
Are you funded through the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire?
While we are located on the campus and provide high impact learning opportunities for students, we receive zero dollars in operational funding from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire.
