HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s award winning public radio station, 90.9 KSLU, will host its eighth annual On-Air Spring Fund Drive March 22-26.
Proceeds from the fund drive help KSLU continue to bring quality programming to its listening audience, said General Manager Todd Delaney.
“In addition,” he said, “the station funds the ‘KSLU Scholarship,’ which is awarded each fall and spring semester to a current or previous KSLU student employee. Our annual fund drive helps fund the scholarship through the ‘Add a Dollar for a Scholar’ donation option.”
Pledge options during the annual drive include several levels of giving: Green ($35), Gold ($50), Friend ($100), Family ($150), and Benefactor ($250). Pledges may be made online at www.kslu.org/support or by calling the station at 985-549-5758. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card (Mastercard and Visa). All donations are tax deductible.
