Giving Tuesday Now

In the wake of COVID-19, non-profits have been severely impacted. Art galleries and museums have closed. Symphonies, theatre and dance troupes have canceled Spring and Summer performances. Gala fundraisers have been canceled, left and right.

Giving Tuesday Now (from the brainchild of the online day of Giving during the Holiday Season) joined forces on May 5, 2020 for individuals to donate to non-profits, including WCRS. WCRS is an all-volunteer operated station run entirely by volunteers, who while social distancing, are running the station away from the Free Press Carriage House. Community Radio costs money. From licensing fees to maintenance on our antennas, it is not cheap to bring you community radio from the grassroots.

For more information on donating to WCRS, go to http://www.wcrsfm.org/donate. Any bit helps.
