Vermont Public Radio (VPR) reached & exceeded our membership drive goal of $520,000 from nearly 5000 listeners. Heavy forward promotion resulted in great advance-of-drive funds, esp. on-line.
The only membership gift was the custom designed local artist mug, with new designs for each drive.

There were a number of drawings for I-Pads, 4 airline tix to anywhere in US, $1,000 prize to Small Dog (Apple retailer)& $3,000 prize to Outdoor Gear Exchange (popular clothes & equipment store).

Focus stayed on what VPR means to you.

What was really amazing was this drive came less than a month after Vermont Disaster Relief Fund, a one day drive to benefit folks hit hard by Tropical Storm Irene. The ONE DAY drive raised $620,000+

Just curious to know what the climate is like out there as far as fundraising goes. Are the majority of stations making goals, falling short or exceeding goals? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
KEWU kicks off our Drive Sunday November 13th.
