The new HQ for Marfa Public Radio, between Ballroom Marfa and Marfa Studio of Arts (KRTS/Travis Bubenik)
We’re so proud and happy to announce that this year’s Fall Fund Drive was a huge success – thanks to you!
Thanks to your tax-deductible contributions to this listener-supported station, we met our $50,000 goal for the week! This has in fact been our largest fall fundraising drive since we launched the station!
Y’all really stepped up to the plate for this extremely important fund drive.
The money we raised this week is going straight back into paying for NPR programming, continuing to develop our local and regional news coverage, and most importantly this year – to building and upgrading our “new home on the range” – the new home of Marfa Public Radio and West Texas Public Radio!
Remember if you haven’t already donated you still can! Just call us at 432-729-4578, toll-free at 800-903-KRTS, or just click here!
A very special thanks to our dedicated members who offered up match challenges during the drive – we’re happy to report we met all of them!
Congratulations to Faith Gay of Marfa, who won the iPad drawing. Her name was randomly selected on Monday following the Fund Drive.
