Radiothon ’19

As a WJCU listener, you play a crucial role in helping us bring live, non-commercial content to the greater Cleveland area and the world. We've covered quite a distance already over our 50 years on the air, and during our annual Radiothon this week, we ask you to help us run our latest marathon by pledging your support with a modest donation.

Every penny of your Radiothon donation is used by WJCU to meet ever-increasing technology and operational expenses. The only way we can keep WJCU going (hopefully for another 50 years!) is with your financial support.

Help us go the distance by donating today!

Premium gifts

As our way of saying thanks for your support, we’ll send you one of our awesome gifts:

Online or call-in

Thank you letter

Everyone pledging at the $10 level or above will receive a thank you and acknowledgement letter from the WJCU staff that serves as a donation confirmation for tax purposes.
Above the $10 level, we have a number of selectable premiums. These gifts are not cumulative—you will only receive the premium at the level you select.
