Fall Fund Drive 2023
WFDD's Fall Fund Drive is happening right now. When you give, you're supporting so much more than "just radio." Your gift means you can count on the veracity of the news and information you hear. Your gift means you get local news from a team of reporters that live right here in the same community as you. Your gift also ensures that the next generation of reporters is learning the importance of fact-finding, and journalistic integrity. You make WFDD a place to connect with familiar places and fresh faces; a home to explore new ideas and old environs. Listener support powers all this and more.
We believe that everyone should have access to trusted information and that everyone in our community deserves a voice; make your gift now because you share that belief. Thank you!
