Pledge Drive

AMOUNT TO GO as of 4:45 p.m.:  $2,700

UPDATE 4/16/18, 9:30 a.m.: This past weekend, loyal and committed HPR listeners contributed nearly $10,000 online to bring us closer to our goal. We encourage those who had planned to give in the final two hours of the on-air drive on Friday or who are moved to do so today to pledge online now. Contributions from first-time donors, renewing members, Sustaining upgrades, or additional gifts will all help to bring this Spring Fund Drive to a successful and speedy finish. Mahalo for your support.

Hawaiʻi Public Radio met its Fall Fund Drive goal of $875,000 an hour ahead of schedule, at 4:57 p.m. on Friday, October 6. Nearly $773,000 were raised during the ten days of on-air fundraising on both of HPR's stations (HPR-1 News and HPR-2 Classical). Early donations of $104,000 were received prior to the start of the drive on September 27.

Ahhh, the quiet calm before the storm. Hawaii Public Radio's Spring 2017 Pledge Drive starts bright and early tomorrow morning, and I have a feeling that many of the shows will be pretty upbeat, so I'm taking the opportunity to embrace the little calm before all of the madness.

It’s a historic day for Hawaii Public Radio.  The Fall 2016 Pledge Drive came to an end after a 10-day campaign, with a total of $872,162 raised, and a record 922 new members added. 

Ok sexy people, tonight's the night to make a pledge for Bridging the Gap on Hawaiʻi Public Radio-2 (89.3fm) by calling 941-3689 between 6-8pm.

I'm raffling off the Turkey Hat at the end of the show to a listener… as well as giving out fast drive premiums filled with mixes, and local music (for a minimum $5/month donation). #supportHPR

Today on Bytemarks Café, we’ll take a listen back to some of our favorite segments from the last 6 months.
