After serving the community for over three years, we held our first ever pledge drive March 15-18. During this time a wide variety of people from across the community came during the four day period and gave moving testimonies on the impact of KLEK. We are so grateful to them and most importantly we are grateful to EVERYONE who agreed to pledge, to invest, to plant a seed to help us to continue to serve you. Thank you to EVERYONE who made this possible. Because of you the KLEK family is growing. Because of you KLEK earned $14,390 in pledges of support of our mission to “Educate, Entertain, and Empower!”
However, we still have lots more work to do and we hope that you will continue to help us. If you have not yet made a pledge, please consider doing so now. Our goal is to still get 250 new members with a minimum pledge of $20 per month for one year and 25 businesses to pledge a sponsorship of $500 or more (businesses will be acknowledge with underwriting announcements informing listeners of who you are, location, and products and services offered).
We also would like to thank Full Sun Gifts, 606 Southwest Drive in Jonesboro, for the generous donation of our giveaway items for our pledge drive (which if you have not yet pledged you’re still eligible to get).
$20 Pledge – KLEK Bumper Sticker, $50 Pledge – KLEK Keychain and Bumper Sticker, $100 Pledge KLEK Coffee Mug, Keychain, and Bumper Sticker, $250 Pledge KLEK Hat, Coffee Mug, Keychain, and Bumper Sticker.
Finally, once again a very special thanks to those who pledged during our drive as listed below (some donors are not listed as they wished to remain anonymous). Also check out pictures from our pledge drive.
