Preserve and Protect Public Radio

Apr 1, 2017

Support WNIJ with a donation and you'll provide for public radio, protecting it for your own enjoyment and for your community.

Our goal is to raise $125,000 this spring to sustain the programs you love, and once again, we want to meet this goal without interrupting programs.

Now is the time to give, and when you do, you'll be helping to sustain our national forests, too. We're teaming up with the National Forest Foundation and Tyler's Landscaping to plant a tree to mark every donation to this station during this campaign. Our goal is to plant 1,000 trees before the end of this campaign.

Donate now.


This campaign begins Saturday, April 1 and runs through Earth Day on Saturday, April 22, 2017


During this time of uncertainty surrounding state funding and  federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, expanding the donor base for this station is essential. To provide for the in-depth journalism, local reporting, and entertainment programs you can't get anywhere else, we must campaign for new members and additional financial support.

How to Participate?

Donate now. Nurture the station you love. And when you do, we'll plant a tree in the public radio forest to mark your donation. We can't do this without you.
