Join WPPB for our Summer Fundraiser. The quiet pledge is underway and runs through the 4th of July. Our On Air Pledge Drive starts on Tuesday, July 5th- Saturday, July 9th. WPPB will kick off the On Air campaign during the Fourth of July Parade in Southampton, New York. The format of this drive will include our new more dynamic on air pledge drive format. Pledge drive highlights include; On Air Co-Hosts, Surprise Conversations with Non Profit Heads, Local Personalities, Independent Producers and National NPR Hosts. There will also be cold calling for dollars and for the first time live streaming on Facebook. This will give our listeners a chance to see what it’s like inside of the WPPB Studio during a live Pledge Drive! (Social Media Alerts Will Be Sent Out Each Morning to Help you Stay Connected.)
There will be Challenge Grants and Thank You Gifts which will include; Tickets, Gift Certificates, Wine Tastings and More!!
WPPB relies on the listeners of this station to support us. Only a small percentage of our funding comes from CPB (Corporation for Public Broadcasting), and, unlike many other NPR Stations, we do not have the backing of a University or Academic Institution. That said, we celebrate our independence and community base. It is you, our listeners, who provide the resources we need to keep our signal loud and strong and to serve this vital East End Community.
