Annual Pledge Drive Begins September 12th

Hello loyal WVKR listeners!

Tuesday, September 12th marks the start of our annual Pledge Drive, our major yearly fundraiser! Our Pledge Drive provides a major percentage of our annual budget and allows for both the continuation of our station as well as independent radio as a whole.

This year, Pledge Drive will take place from Tuesday, September 12th – Tuesday, September 18th, but we will also accept pledges outside of this timeframe! 

Here’s how to pledge:

  1. Call into the station at (845) 437-7178 during a show you love and one of our phone tenders will take down your info. We’ll then mail you an invoice for your pledge.
  2. Make a credit card donation online here ( – NOTE: Due to internal processing, we cannot offer premiums through this method.

Additionally, here are visuals of the premiums we’re offering this year, as well as their respective donation tiers:

Every pledge to the station is appreciated, no matter the value! It’s an honor for us that you want to help us keep running. Each donation comes with a premium, but if you elect to not receive a premium, 100% of your donation will go to WVKR alone.

If you choose to donate without receiving premiums, then your entire donation is tax-deductible. If you do receive premiums then only the surplus of your pledge (total pledge amount minus the cost of merchandise) is tax-deductible. More detailed information will be mailed to you on your invoice.

As always, thank you so much for your support of our truly wonderful station! Each year, it is so incredibly heartwarming to see the sheer amount of contributions that come in. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please reach out to me at!

All the best,
