The WHQR Partnership Challenge - Spring Pledge Drive 2016

Non-profits in the Cape Fear region know that WHQR Public Radio is an essential part of a strong marketing plan, and one of the best ways to expand their reach.

In our 2016 Spring Drive, March 16-??? (we hope to make our goal by March 21), WHQR will salute local non-profits that make a difference in our community, and give your group a chance to be heard even more. Winners of our Partnership Challenge will receive underwriting contracts on WHQR.

Here’s how it will work:

  • Local businesses and groups sign up for pledge drive phone shifts of 3 or 4 hours during our drive, March 16-21.
  • Your organization sends 4 (4 are required to be eligible) representatives for the entire shift – staff, volunteers, board or friends
  • Each shift is assigned a goal based on time of day and day of the week
  • The captain of your group will be interviewed on the air two or three times during your shift about your group and the reason you support the station
  • The groups with the best percentage over the goal will receive contracts for on-air underwriting:

                         - $1,000 first prize
                         - $500 second prize

  • If the winner is a business, it is encouraged to use the underwriting to support a non-profit in the community along with company name
  • All shifts will be fed delicious food
  • Be part of the fun!
