Fundraising/Underwriting

As a non-commercial station, our two main sources of income are our WATTS members and our Underwriters.  Underwriters are businesses who donate money to WWER in exchange for on-air mentions of their business.  A more common term might be sponsor, but we like to differentiate with the term underwriter we are not a commercial station.  […]

Would you like to give a special gift to a friend or family member?  How about a special announcement for a birthday, anniversary, or graduation on WWER?   For $20 donation, we will wish a happy birthday, anniversary, or other special event on air on their special day.  We will make the announcement several times throughout […]

It’s nice to see things slowly returning to ‘normal’ for the Summer!  People are coming to the beach, businesses are starting to open up, and some events are being planned.  One of those events is “Cinema on the Green” run by the Colonial Beach Community Foundation.  I’m happy to say that the first Cinema event […]

https://tinyurl.com/WWER2020 It’s hard to believe, but June 1 marks a whole year since we went on air!  I’m proud of what our all volunteer staff have accomplished in that year.  Great music, interesting specialty shows, interviews with interesting citizens and town officials about town news and events.  At 88.1FM, our schedule has something for everyone, […]

We hope you had a Merry Christmas and Holiday season so far!  On our part, we have been busy little elves producing special music and shows for the season and preparing a few new things for you! Just in time for those end of year tax write offs, we unveil the WWER WATTS membership program!  […]

We love hearing from our listeners and finding out what you like or don’t like on WWER.  To help us improve, we’re asking you to fill out our new survey.  It should only take a few minutes and will help guide on on future programming decisions.  Thanks!

You probably already know that WWER is a non-profit station, run completely by volunteers and funded by donations.  We get donations from individuals and businesses.  Some are large, some are small, but they all add up!  They are vital to our continued operation.  You can see their logos along the top of our home page. […]

I realize it’s been a little while since you’ve heard from us and you might think we have run out of steam.  Quite the contrary – So much is going on that it’s hard to know where to start.  The last piece of paperwork related to transferring the license of WWER to the Colonial Beach […]

I’m happy to announce our first ongoing underwriting pledge!  Underwriting, is where a person, business or organization support WWER with an ongoing donation, and we recognize that support with on air announcements.  This week, the American Legion voted on a silver level underwriting plan at $50 per month for one year.  We are very grateful […]

Last night, I made a presentation to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation (our parent organization) about our progress so far.  They seem as excited as some of you about the prospect of our little town having it’s own radio station, and want to help.  I explained to them what we have accomplished so far, what […]
