**UPDATE: TSPR enlightens, educates, inspires, entertains and reflects the community by presenting high quality content that earns the interest, involvement and support of the people we serve. Your contribution makes it all possible. Thank you!
We did it! Thanks to all who contributed during our first-ever Silent Drive. We raised the whole goal of $75,500 and are so grateful for all of your support!
Your support allows us to ask the tough questions, find critical answers, and deliver a focus on the truth.
The typical "on-air" portion of our spring campaign is usually scheduled for 8 days in March or April. You know the format: extended program interruptions for a full 6-8 days reminding our listeners and friends that their financial support is essential to the way TSPR operates.
We hope to reduce fundraising that interrupts programs by as much as possible and we're counting on your support to help us do it. Our promise is simple--we won't come back for a traditional "on-air" campaign this spring if we are able to reach our semi-annual fundraising goal of $77,500.
