By Diana Ross | Posted in Membership, WBJC News | 4 Comments

Thank you each and every person who donated during both the Spring Drive and the Spring Buy-Back-a-Day challenge! Both campaigns were truly successful, and have put us right on track for meeting our fiscal year budget goals.

The Numbers…
Buyback: 721 pledges totalling $73,388
Since we were after $65,000 for a whole day, we applied the remaining amount to lower the hourly goals during the remaining days during the on-air drive.

Spring Drive, Goal=$83,000
Total pledges: 698
Total amount: $86,335.00
160 pledges were from NEW members
19.7 % were online pledges

In Membership, we’ve sent out the “Bill Me’s” and have started getting acknowledgements out in the mail. If you gave over $100 and didn’t already choose a Thank You gift, you’ll be getting a Premium List and return envelope in your acknowledgement letter.

Premiums will begin shipping out next week. If you chose the New York times digital subscription and did not provide an email address, look for your redemption code and instructions in the mail!

Again, thank you everyone for supporting classical music on WBJC! And as always, if you have any questions or needs, please contact Yvonne or myself in the Membership department at 410-580-5800 or email us at membership@wbjc.com.

    Try the Pet Pledge Friday idea next time. I couldn’t do a matching cat owner pledge this drive as each hour was filled with Joe’s pre-planned matches. Ken

      We can certainly do a fun challenge for cat-people, but we’d have no official way to track that during the pledge drive Ken!

  • Bert Katz says:

    Is the 19.7% of on-line pledges in terms of the total pledges (698), or the total amount ($86,335)?

    Related: what portion of the buy-back campaign was on-line (vs. called in)? Are any of those pledges from new members? (I realize the buy-back campaign may not have been set up to track such numbers.)

    P.S.: Almost $160K total! That’s fabulous!
