Fundraising messages on nationally distributed programs

  • Concern about timing – conflicts with local fundraising

  • Concern about strategy and context

    • On-air appeals during a program – Prairie Home Companion example

    • Email appeals to show subscribers – On Being example

Action: Cleve recommended Christina discuss in the PRRO (Public Radio Regional Organizations) group and WSPR (Western States Public Radio) group to determine if there is consensus and if so how to address as a group. Paul supported this as ‘timing is now’ given Gary Knell is firmly on board and needs to understand the potential pitfalls of program producer fundraising.
