** 1:30pm CST, Wednesday, December 31 Update**
It is our pleasure to share we have reached our fundraising goal for the 2014 Year-End campaign! With an amazing donation from a generous listener today, and one of the best fundraising days in our history yesterday, we sit at $3,031 raised! There is still time to make a gift before the end of 2014. Thanks to the many listeners who supported us during this important fundraiser for next year. We will continue to bring you terrific new music in 2015!
** 1:00pm CST, Tuesday, December 30 Update**
With another strong day today, we are up to $1,881 raised! With less than 36 hours to go, make your gift now so we can continue the music on January 1st, and to have enough so we do not have to do fundraising until later in 2015!
** Tuesday, December 30 Update**
With a strong day yesterday, we are now at $1,571 raised! With less than 48 hours to go, please make your gift today so the music does not stop at midnight on January 1st!
With 3 days left in our year-end fundraising campaign, we have raised $1,200 from 32 generous donors. Our goal of $3,000 would cover most of our licensing and operating expenses in 2015. Getting to $3,000 by the end of the year may be difficult, but my greatest concern is having the $2,100 needed during the first week of January so we can obtain our music royalty licenses for the new year. If we haven’t raised that amount by Wednesday night at midnight, we will not be able to legally play music on the station beginning New Year’s Day! We don’t want to turn the music off this Thursday and continue to try and raise the money we need to pay for the 2015 music royalty licenses. Please help DMPulse by making a donation today!
As of this writing, we have raised $961 towards our year-end fundraising goal of $3,000. We have $2,000 in payments due right away in January just to keep operating, and we want to raise enough so we do not have to have a spring fundraiser next year. Make a gift today to help us keep rockin!
