Join the fun this Spring Pledge Drive, April 8-15!
KCPW’s pledge drives are eight-day, annual, community-wide efforts, powered by public radio champions like you. Make an impact for KCPW’s local public radio mission by helping to create a ripple effect, spreading generosity throughout our community and leaving a lasting impression that you’re a member who cares.
Challenge grants range anywhere from $500 to $5,000 and can be issued by businesses, organizations or individuals. They can be designed to match a certain amount within an hour, as a one-day match, and/or a match to encourage a type of giving (such as additional gifts, first-time donations, or sustaining gifts).
What does a challenge grant sound like? A typical challenge grant script sounds like this:
This hour, [NAME] is matching all donations, up to $500. This is a chance to add even more value to your pledge and help KCPW reach its Spring funding goal that much faster. Thank you [NAME] for being a part of local public radio this hour!
NOTE: Challenge grantors are also encouraged (but not required) to join KCPW staff on-air to help make the pitch. Pitching can be done in-studio or remotely via phone or video link.
