Polly and I are offering a $10K match! Will you join us?

Posted on Aug 22, 2019

One of the best parts of my day is coming home, having a relaxing dinner with my wife Polly and then turning on KLRU to watch PBS NewsHour. I like to be informed about what’s going on in the world and in my neighborhood. KLRU brings it all to the comfort of my living room and I know it is programming I can trust.

My nightly tradition began early, as it was my father who introduced me to the power of PBS at a young age. It was the Watergate era, and we spent many hours watching this historical event unfold on television. Dad would remind me of the significance of what we were witnessing and we would discuss the latest news each evening. It was all available to us because of public media. I’ve never forgotten those moments and have been a fan of PBS ever since.

As an adult, I now have the opportunity to help others enjoy the same eye opening experiences that shaped my life. And so do you. During this August fund drive, Polly and I are challenging you to make a gift in support of shows like PBS NewsHour and FRONTLINE that dive deep into current issues our community and our country are facing every day, including education, healthcare, gun violence and environmental issues.
We will match your gift dollar for dollar up to $10,000. Together we can raise $20,000 for KLRU.

Please take a moment to make your gift today. Simply click on or paste the link below into your internet browser: www.klru.org/donate/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=thecoopermatch

Your support will provide for the future of dependable, trustworthy news for all of our neighbors in Central Texas. What could be better than that?
