Most pledge drives get your attention by interupting the news for a full week—or more. The WBUR Marathon crams all of that fundraising into just 26.2 hours. The WBUR Marathon works because #teamWBUR (that's you!) pitches in to raise awareness about the importance of supporting NPR before the big day.
#teamWBUR includes everyone who thinks that public radio provides a vital service to our democracy. We use the #teamWBUR hashtag to talk about our common cause on social media, to promote community events, and to share our love of WBUR.
Easy stuff you can do right now:
- Share a pre-written message about #teamWBUR.
- Take a selfie with your WBUR gear. Tag it with #teamWBUR.
- Donate early and get a head start on keeping the fundraiser short.
Will my gift today count towards the WBUR Marathon?
Yes! Pledge now and you'll give us a head start. Or come back and pledge on Wednesday, April 11. Either way, when you make a gift through wbur.org/team, you're helping WBUR change the future of pledge drives.
Is my payment secure?
Yes. All payments will be processed using a secure online giving form. The information collected during the WBUR Marathon will be used only by WBUR.
Will my gift be tax-deductible?
Yes, your gift to WBUR is fully tax-deductible, minus the fair market value of any thank you gifts requested.
Can I make a recurring gift?
You sure can! Choose the "Sustaining" option and support WBUR as a Sustainer.
