Fund Drive: Is It Almost Over? You Decide.

Oct 16, 2012

UPDATE: 10/17/12 @7pm
The drive is now over and we still need $48,129.50 in listener donations. Check back soon to hear how this shortfall will affect WCBE listeners.

WCBE stays on the air and remains a strong voice in the central Ohio community when listeners pay for the programs they listen to. Wednesday, October 17, 2012 is the LAST DAY of our fall pledge drive and if you haven’t given yet, it’s important that you give now because its listener support that makes everything we do possible. If you've recently made a donation, thank you! You're the reason why WCBE's on the air today.


So far this drive we’ve had great success thanks to Chornyak & AssociatesMcTigue & McGinnis Law Group, and everyone who’s given by mail, online and phone. But as of 7pm on Wednesday evening, we still need $48,129.50 to reach our overall goal. It’s important to reach our goal because our expenses are directly tied to the cost of providing you a service like WCBE. And, it would be great if we can work together to hit that goal, so we don’t have to interrupt programming after today.

Don’t wait any longer to make your donation – give NOW before the drive ends Wednesday at 7pm. 

Wednesday 10/17: Last Day to Receive Our Coffee Lover's Package
We’d also like to remind our listeners that Wednesday is ALSO the last day we’re offering our ‘CBE Special Blend, organic coffee to those who donate $125 or above on a credit card. After today, the coffee will no longer be available as a thank you gift option.

Our WCBE branded coffee is just another added incentive to entice you to pick up the phone and call us right now at (614) 722-7333 with your pledge of support. You can also donate online at, but you must donate before the drive ends to take advantage of this special offer. (View complete list of thank you gifts.)


Remember: however you choose to give and whatever WCBE item you choose to accept, above all - the most important thing you’ll receive in return is being able to hear the programs you love to listen to on the air for the next 6 months.

Thanks in advance for your continued support!
