Fundraiser Challenge!

As you are probably aware, KPFT is in the middle of its Fall Membership Drive. The overall station goal is to raise $350,000 by Wednesday, Nov. 10th.

Technology Bytes has three fund raising episodes scheduled during the drive. We’ve already completed the first one on Oct. 27th and we met our goal of $1,600. It was a bit tight and we came in right under the wire. Thank you to all who pledged!

But it’s not over yet. We still have two more episode where we need to raise $1,600 per show this Wednesday, Nov. 3rd and next Wednesday, Nov. 10th.

But here’s some AWESOME news! For this Wednesday we are already halfway to our goal! A generous listener has pledged $800 in matching donations for Technology Bytes. That means if we can raise an additional $800 between now and when the show starts on Wednesday at 8:00 pm CST we can just do a regular show, one without begging our listeners during the program to make donations. How cool is that?

What we’re asking our listeners and fans to do is click on the donation link below and donate what you can.

As soon as we receive $800 in matching donations, we’re done for this week!

We’re not asking you to give more than you can afford. Just donate what you can. If that is $35 for a basic membership, that’s great! If it is more, we have some fantastic thank you gifts at the different levels. Examples include (but are not limited to) a KPFT t-shirt at the $60 level, a KPFT 40th Anniversary T-Shirt at the $90 level and a classic black polo shirt with BBC logo embroidered on the sleeve at the $150 level.

When making the donation just pick the amount and specify Technology Bytes as the show you are donating to and you will be prompted to pick your thank you gift and input your billing info.

Once you make your donation please send a note to jay@geekradio.com telling us you have pledged and indicate the amount. That way we can keep a running tally to know how close are to making our goal.

It only makes sense that we should utilize technology to change the game when it comes to fundraising, and this is how we can do it! Technology Bytes did this once in a previous fund raiser and it was very cool. Please help us do it again!

Thanks for your support!
