Along with the usual traffic citations, police in Melbourne, Fla., gave out scratch-off lottery tickets. The cops themselves paid for them — in the spirit of the season, they said. No word of any big winners, just yet.

WEMU's Fall Pledge Drive

Oct 10, 2013

  You can help WEMU 89.1 in a big way, just by spreading the word. When you pledge, share this link and update your status to let your friends know that you don’t just talk about WEMU you’re willing to put your money where your mouth is. Use all the social media you’re tapped into to get the message out there: Public Radio from Eastern Michigan University is unique, it’s great, and it needs friends like you.

Tune in for David Fair's chat  Ira Glass on WEMU 89.1 this Saturday, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. 

WEMU extends a special thank you to the following companies who were generous enough to donate their products for our volunteers during the 2013 Spring Pledge Drive.

As the successful spring pledge drive ends  we hope you will continue to enjoy the commercial-free programming on WEMU, especially knowing you did your part to make it happen.

 

We especially want to thank the phone volunteers who helped make  this $185,000 pledge drive a success.  We would also like to thank the various businesses who supported our volunteers and staff during the Spring Pledge Drive.

Year End Giving to WEMU

Dec 27, 2012

December brings the opportunity to review your tax situation and consider making charitable gifts before year end. 

The final numbers won't be in for a couple of weeks, but local businesses appear to have done well in 2012.  Hear more from WEMU's Andrew Cluley.

As the year comes to a close, it’s a tradition to both look back and anticipate what lies ahead. I’m excited to share just a few highlights that your support of WEMU made possible in 2012, and with your continued support, what’s ahead in 2013.

  •  2012 had the most expensive Presidential election in history.  WEMU brought you thoughtful and thorough coverage throughout the election cycle, not only on the national level but on the state and local levels as well.
  •  WEMU covered Washtenaw County  more throroughly than any other local station; from city council to county commssion, from the devastating Dexter tornado to the record-breaking summer heat wave, from transit to traffic.  WEMU will continue to be your best and most trusted local news source in 2013.
  • WEMU was in your community; onstage at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, marching in the Fourth of July Parade, hosting free 5:01 Jazz shows in downtown Ann Arbor, running shuttle buses to the Detroit Jazz Festival and so much more.

We know you are asked to support many worthy organizations at this time of year. Please take a moment to consider the value that WEMU adds to your life and to the life of the community. Your tax-deductible year-end gift will go a long way toward helping us achieve our goals in the coming year.

 Please make your secure online gift at wemu.org by clicking the green DONATE button. 

On behalf of the staff of WEMU and our public radio partners, I wish you a joyful holiday season, thank you for your support this year, and look forward to serving you in 2013.

WEMU 89.1 FM

WEMU's fall on-air pledge drive concluded at 7pm Thursday, October 18, with a record total of just under $182,000 pledged by WEMU listeners.

Thank you so much!  Your generosity keeps jazz, news, and blues going strong at 89.1.    We couldn't do this without you, and we are very grateful.

While the pledge drive total was indeed a record for WEMU, it was still far short of our $200,000 goal.  WEMU's management is already hard at work to find ways to make up this shortfall while maintaining the programming you enjoy.
