During the KUAC Spring Fundraiser, we focused on bringing new donors and new sustaining donors into the KUAC family. Over three days of sustaining fundraising to support Interior Alaska’s public broadcasting station, we were again amazed by the generosity and enthusiasm that our supporters exhibited. The 2015 spring grand total added up to a preliminary $72,500 (which doesn’t include the challenge dollars)!
More than 385 gifts were made to KUAC between April 10-12, including 49 new donors & 103 sustaining, monthly gifts. The 2015 spring fundraiser average pledge was an incredible $188. Read the entire spring drive update HERE.
