Fundraising/Underwriting

I’m glad to say that we’ve had some new underwriters join the station recently, and I thought it was time to recognize them here.  Underwriting is what you might think of as sponsorship.  As a non-commercial radio station, we cannot broadcast advertising in the traditional sense.  Instead, we accept donations (we are a non-profit) and […]

We’ve just received another batch of WWER T-Shirts in Large and Extra Large sizes.   If you would like one of your very own, let us know by sending an email to [email protected] and I’ll set one aside for you.  They are $20 each, cash only please.  

Do you shop on Amazon?  If you do, please consider setting WWER as your charity of choice.  What is Amazon Smile?…. AmazonSmile is a program that donates 0.5% of your eligible purchases on Amazon to a charity of your choice. All you need to do is start your shopping at smile.amazon.com. The donation will be made at no extra […]

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! Please visit https://wwer.org/survey/     

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.
