Support Your Local Public Radio Station

Have you ever thought about what public radio really means? The name is fairly misleading. Public schools, public libraries — they’re government funded. In much of the world, funding for public radio does come from the government. But as a public radio station in the United States, over 80% of WFDD’s funding comes from local businesses and individual donors like you. We need your support! 

Donate online now using a credit or debit card. It’s quick and easy. You’ll get an email receipt of your tax-deductible donation.

WFDD Sustainers make automatic monthly gifts using a credit or debit card. It’s a simple way to make a large impact.

Become a Day Sponsor

Celebrate a special person or event with a donation of $200 or more. Select a day and compose a short script for us to share on the air — broadcasting your message to the entire 88.5 WFDD listening audience. Day Sponsor messages can be lighthearted and fun, bitingly witty, or heartwarming and inspiring. It’s up to you! 

Submit Your Message

A gift of $1000 or more adds your name to the list of Public Radio Society members. 

Does your employer match donations you make? If yes, be sure to request the matching form from your HR department so you can double your contribution.

Become an Underwriter

Underwriting support is a great way to reach more than 100,000 loyal 88.5 WFDD listeners. And let’s be honest, our listeners are awesome. They’re intelligent, engaged, and pretty much your ideal customer. When our listeners learn about your business, organization, or event through underwriting messages on WFDD, it not only enhances your brand, it shows your future customers that you understand them and share their values.
