Postmortem on the PRE Fall Fund Drive


A Message from PRE GM, Ben Donnelly
We set a goal of raising $120,000 during our recent fund drive. We raised 90% of that amount during the on-air portion of the drive November 9th through the 16th. It was a very respectable amount and very close to where we wanted to be.
In the weeks since the live drive, additional pledges and donations kept coming in. We quietly crossed the $120,000 mark just before the end of November. We closed the books on the fall drive and started raising money for the end of the calendar year. 
In a normal year, there would be a break between the fall drive and the end of the year, but 2018 was not a normal year. We delayed the fall drive by almost 2 months due to recovery efforts from the effects of Hurricane Florence.
We are asking for your generous donation again because we need to. No matter what else is happening in the world, we still depend on listener donations for most of our budget.
Please fit us into your end of year budget as you get ready for 2019.
Thank you.
