WFDD Fall Fund Drive

To remain strong and independent, 88.5 WFDD must be powered by the very public it serves.

In this polarizing political climate, 88.5 WFDD is here for you with a deep, unflinching commitment to facts, a promise of open knowledge for all, and a dedication to respectful, civil conversations that include a wide variety of perspectives and viewpoints.

Listener support pays for this essential news coverage. 

Every single day, 88.5 WFDD is here for our community for free. We make this service available, and then ask you to make a contribution because you value it.
