Every donation during the two-day drive will be matched dollar for dollar

ATHENS, OH – The WOUB Double Days Double Dollars Radio Pledge Drive is back by popular demand. Thanks to matching donations from several longtime members, WOUB is holding its second Double Days Double Dollars Radio Pledge Drive later this week. Every donation made during the limited two-day drive on Thursday, February 9 and Friday, February 10 will be matched dollar for dollar.

“We were overwhelmed by the support we received during our first Double Days Double Dollars drive in October,” said General Manager Mark Brewer. “Our members and supporters responded because they had the opportunity to double their donation and limit the number of days WOUB was on the air for our pledge drive. We need to ask members to support our programming, but we want to limit pledge drive interruptions to that programming as much as possible. Thanks to generous donations from current members, we are again able to offer dollar-for-dollar matches for every donation that comes in during this limited two-day drive.”

Member support is crucial for WOUB to be able to continue to provide the quality public media programming people in this region have come to rely on. The goal for the two-day drive is $30,000. If that goal is reached, then WOUB will not conduct another on-air radio pledge drive until late April.

“Donations from our members directly support the local and national news programming that help bring important information to our region, as well as the regional music and entertainment programming,” said Brewer. “We know that our listeners value what they hear on WOUB, and we know they will welcome the chance to double their impact by making a donation during this short pledge drive.”

Donors can make their pledge by calling or texting the word “GIVE” to 877-845-9600 or visiting and clicking the donate button.
