It was looking shaky this morning for making our $5,000 challenge from a Southern California Public Radio board member. We were a long way from the threshold for fulfillment, and it looked like we might miss out for the second time in one morning. That would’ve been a dubious distinction in KPCC history.
However, in the very last minute before noon, we received a flurry of gifts that put us barely over the top. I can’t overstate what a huge relief it was to me.
This member drive has been a great success so far. Listeners like you have allowed us to reach or slightly surpass our hourly goals necessary to balancing the budget. We’re trying to build a bit of a buffer in case federal support for public broadcasting is eliminated, as the House has already voted to do.
If you’ve given so far, I hope you know how important you are to KPCC. You are deeply appreciated!
