Fall 2019 – Donor Match Announcement

by Jay Boeding on November 9, 2019

Listeners are the reason DMPulse is commercial-free and available to all without a subscription. Today, we are pleased to announce a generous donor match during our Support DMPulse – Fall 2019 fundraising campaign.

Jouko from Finland, a generous supporter of DMPulse is matching new and increased donations up to $1,500! Any listener making their first gift to DMPulse will have their gift matched 1:1 by this special gift. In addition to first-time donations, the match also includes increased gifts amounts over donations made in 2018, thus doubling the impact of any increased gifts to the station.

“Listeners have been so generous to DMPulse. Since 2011, we have been entirely supported by donors, and this matching gift brings focus to the importance of new supporters by increasing the impact of new donations to DMPulse. I challenge current supporters to make a special gift in support of the great new music we share every day on DMPulse,” said Jay Boeding, Executive Director of D.M. Pulse Media.
