Spring Drive wrap-up

By Diana Ross | Posted in Membership, WBJC News | Comments Off on Spring Drive wrap-up

I know it must seem silly to read and hear us saying over and over how amazed, how humbled and how grateful we all are for our outstanding supporters. But really, WE ARE! Once again, all of you who stepped up and supported this wonderful format just leave us in awe!

The numbers:

pre-drive “buyback” goal: $60,000 (per day)
total made: $136,764.50 (TWO days reclaimed!)

Pledge drive goal: $75,000
total made: $78,494.34
online pledges: 41% (that means 59% of you called in pledges to the volunteers!)

Challenge dollars: $19,000

Combined campaign: $234,258.84 🎉🎉🎉
New members: 119

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much to each of you who made a pledge! Thank you Challengers for your generous help to match those pledges! Thank you volunteers for your hard work! Thank you food donors Heavenly Ham and Embassy Suites, and Jennifer, for sustaining us! Thank you BCCC IT department for the generous loan of the volunteer laptops! Thank you to anyone my drive-addled brain is forgetting!

Over the next week or so, we’ll be getting everything straight in the database and be getting the Bill Me pledges out in the mail. If you were one of those who wanted us to save an envelope (there’s a bit of a shortage on those right now) please either mail your checks in right away to WBJC-FM, PO Box 22342, Baltimore MD 21203-4342 or go ahead and use the Blue Donate button above and we’ll match up your pledge. Otherwise, we’ll send you the return envelope next week!
