It's The Fall 2017 Fund Drive!

How 88.5 WFDD Is Funded

Public radio is unique and priceless, but it is not free.

Each year, 88.5 WFDD pays almost $600,000 for all the programming you hear. Approximately half of that goes to NPR for shows like Morning Edition, Here & Now, All Things Considered, and Wait, Wait . . . Don't Tell Me!. The NPR programming bill comes due each fall; we pay it all at once and we pay it early, so we can get a discount and be better stewards of your money.

Over 86% of our funding comes directly from the community. Your gift matters -- nothing we do would be possible without the support of listeners like you. Make your gift today!
