The Membership Director helps listeners understand the importance of becoming donors to keep WCBE on the air.  Reporting directly to the General Manager, the Membership Director shapes, produces, and is responsible for listener-based fundraising – particularly our big Spring and Fall on-air fund drives, including the accompanying direct mail and e-mail campaigns, theme development, premium design and production, staff pitch guidance, and volunteer coordination.  The Membership Director also develops other fundraising efforts; the more creative, the better!

From all of us at WCBE: THANK YOU! You donated over $195,000 during our Fall on-air fundraiser. That will go a long way in helping us keep your favorite programs on the air through the spring. And for those of you who didn't have the chance to give, it's not too late to donate!

The drive fell about $69,000 short...so you can still make a difference. Just send a check to:

We’re trying a new experiment for the Fall fund drive: shaving off a day for every $25,000 raised by midnight this Wednesday night (10/15).  And you’ve already shaved one day!

Our fund drives run nine days.  Fall’s is scheduled to roll from Thursday, 10/16 through Friday, 10/24.  Thanks to listeners like you who’ve made early donations, though, we can shave off Thursday.  The fund drive will now run Friday to Friday.  UNLESS…

  It’s that time again when we request your wonderful enthusiasm for WCBE’s Fall 2014 Membership Campaign! 

Please take a look at the shift schedule below. The number in parentheses is the number of individuals needed for that specific shift. When submitting your requested dates, please note the following:

1. List your preferred shifts in order of preference.
2. Indicate how many shifts you are willing to work.

Here are the remaining shifts:

Friday 10/17
> 8:30am - 11:30am (2 seats)

It's finally complete.  Our big Spring on-air fund drive came to a close at 7pm on Friday, April 11.

Perhaps complete isn't the correct word; we truly do need to raise a full $258,000 before our fiscal year comes to a close.  Thanks to the 1,400 dedicated listeners who donated during our fundraiser, we raised a remarkable $183,915.  That leaves $74,085 yet to earn before the fund drive is truly complete.

And the winner of the final WCBE iPad Giveaway sponored by Rife's Auto Body is...WCBE member Robert Marx! Congratulations! His name was randomly selected from all of the registrations for the giveaway. From Robert:

I'm very excited to be able to donate to WCBE. It's my source for good, unbiased reporting and news, and it's  my source for new music and genres. That's how I get new music - by searching for new works by the artists I hear.

Today, April 10th, from 4 pm - 5 pm only, Yogi Hidreath (via his best friend, Ann) will donate an extra $1,000 to WCBE if other dog-loving listeners donate at least $1,000 by 5pm!

This hour from 1 pm - 2 pm  (Thursday, April 10th), our renewing members will match your pledge dollar-for-dollar, up to $1,500!

This hour from 10 am - 11 am  (Thursday, April 10th), our renewing members will match your pledge dollar-for-dollar, up to $1,500!

I think its important to support local broadcast radio. I'm very excited about Nelsonville!
