WGXC needs $1075 to extend matching grant deadline


Last week we asked for your help in raising $5,000 by the end of March. Thank you to all that have responded so quickly. We are now $1,075 away from reaching that goal.

Over the last few months, we’ve been working tirelessly producing benefit events and preparing for the launch of WGXC’s FM signal on 90.7-FM later this year. Please see the below about some exciting forward movement regarding our Hudson studio location.

As publicized, WGXC received a large matching grant from the US Department of Commerce to purchase the equipment (transmitter, antenna, etc) needed to get the WGXC-FM signal on the air. We must match this grant. Fundraising at the community level will demonstrate that we have local support for this effort that will sustain WGXC into the future. We’ve secured the means to extend our fundraising efforts towards the match into the summer, as long as we reach our goal of raising $1,075.00 by March 31st, which is one week from today!

We are asking you to dig as deeply as you can to ensure that WGXC stays on track and can meet our matching deadline. If you are not yet a member, please consider becoming one at the highest level possible. If you are already a member, thank you, and we hope you’ll consider increasing your membership to the next level.
