Last Saturday, October 12th, we reached our fundraiser goal of $20,000. It was a very gratifying moment for myself and all the staff here at KYUK to see the level of support that poured out of Bethel and from across the Y/K Delta for your local public media station, especially in these tough economic times.
It’s been even more astounding to see the pledges continue to roll in even after our goal was met. As I write this our giving has reached over $26,000.
The extent of the financial commitment to local public radio made it clear to us that you value the work we do each day and how important this work is for all of you, our listeners.
I want to thank everyone who donated a portion of their hard earned money, no matter how small the amount, to help keep our services alive and thriving.
I want to thank our corporate donors especially Alaska Airlines, GCI, Calista Corporation and Donlin Gold for their contributions.
I also want to thank the many local businesses that donated goods and services as incentive gifts for our raffles and auctions. Your generosity is a a tribute to your community spirit and commitment to your local public media station, KYUK.
Once again, you , the people of Bethel and the Y/K Delta, demonstrated that you are among the most generous and community spirited folks in the world.
