Fund Drive

Spring Fund Drive:  OUTSTANDING!

    Those of us who make our living behind a mic are rarely at a loss for words. But the response to Public Radio Tulsa’s Spring Fund drive left us speechless.

Thank you to all of you who made contributions, large and small, to support YOUR public radio station.  We surpassed our fund drive goal of $200,000 BEFORE the final day of the drive, and our total now stands at an astounding $233,801!  

WE ❤️ YOU!

We've said it before and we'll say it again. 
 

Because of you, we're able to continue to provide the highest quality news, information, conversation, and music. 

 We are at $225,367 and counting for the Spring 2017 Fund Drive!

Tick tock! The doctor is in and she has issued a challenge. 

You can make a bigger impact with your dollars.  

Here's how the challenge works: this afternoon between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. if we receive $2,000 in pledges, Dr. Kathleen Heffron will donate $1,000 to Public Radio Tulsa. 

Will you meet the challenge? DONATE NOW

Dear Friends of Public Radio Tulsa,               

We get a LOT of questions from listeners here at the station.  Everything from “How do I donate my car? (Easy!)” to “Did you know you’re off the air??? (Yep.)” to “I heard this one story this one time about this one guy…what was it?  (Ummm…)” 

Last spring, we decided we needed to do some asking.  We surveyed our newest donors, asking them about their favorite programs, when they listened, how long they had been listening, and more.  And we requested their comments.  Here’s what they said:

You Did It!
