This year’s KYUK Spring Fundraiser runs from March 9th to March 28th, 2016.
The impetus for the Spring Fundraiser is the opportunity to give direct support to student programs, student programming and student services, including the Alexie Isaac Memorial Fund Scholarship, the Kuskokwim Learning Academy Program, the ONC Summer Employment Program, as well as broadcasts of high school athletics.
This year KYUK will have the Village Showdown, but this Spring’s competition will boil down to a raffle. Your favorite village can win a live broadcast of their high school basketball team next season.
- For every $5 you donate to KYUK you can enter the village high school basketball team of your choice into the raffle.
- Teams can be selected by address, or in the form when you pledge online.
- All pledges must be made by Monday, March 28th by 11:00 AM – following Yuk to Yuk.
- Winner will be picked Monday, March 28th at 12:20 PM- Following KYUK English news.
Additionally, supporters can give to KYUK through Pick.Click.Give. This year when you give through Pick.Click.Give you can win $1,000 for yourself and KYUK. To be eligible for the big drawing file for your Permanent Fund Dividend at pfd.alaska.gov and choose KYUK as your Pick.Click.Give recipient by March 31st.
If you already filed it’s not too late to enter the drawing, just go back to the PFD website and click the green button labeled “Add or Change My Pick. Click. Give. Donation.”
Given the fiscal crisis in the state, and decreased state funding to public media- individual giving has never been more important to KYUK.
