Troy University Public Radio’s fall fund drive, which helps support the programming offered by the network, will kick off on Friday, Sept. 8.

The drive will run through Sept. 15, and offers different options through which supporters can make donations. The quickest and easiest way to give is at the TROY Public Radio website. However, gifts can also be made by calling 1-800-800-6616 or sent by mail to Troy University Public Radio, Wallace Hall, Troy University, Troy, AL 36082. All contributions are tax deductible.

The fund drive also offers listeners the opportunity to keep their support going monthly through the Sustainer Option, which enables the donor to designate a monthly gift amount.

“Consider all the invaluable news and programs you find each day on TROY Public Radio – stories about things that impact your life, ideas that speak to your intelligence, and news that keeps you in the know about state and local government, health, education and culture,” said Michelle Mowery, Development and Underwriting Manager for TROY Public Radio. “You can also tune into our music programming for moments of inspiration and reflection. Your continued generosity is an investment with a powerful return – exceptional, indispensable news and information and invaluable inspiration provided whenever and wherever you need it, on-air, streaming and online.”

Donor support ensures that TROY Public Radio, which was founded in 1977, can continue to offer programming such as “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” “The Score,” “Performance Today,” “Radio Deluxe,” “The Moth Radio Hour” and local programming such as “In Focus with Carolyn Hutcheson” and “The Talk of TROY.”
