WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA – WHQR Public Media’s Fall Pledge Drive will begin on Thursday, October 10, 2019 with a focus on HQR News, Classical HQR, emergency broadcasting and our service to our community. This is one of the on-air fundraising efforts that make up the largest single part of WHQR’s funding.
As a non-profit independent radio station, WHQR counts on the support of its members to provide the high quality radio listeners have come to expect.
WHQR’s Fall Pledge Drive would not be possible without the help of more than twenty teams from local businesses and non-profits and individual volunteers who answer our phones during each pledge drive. This community support, along with financial donations, is vital to the station’s survival. WHQR also thanks the many area restaurants who donate food to feed the volunteers.
