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. During our annual Radiothon this week, we ask you to help us continue our mission 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.

Donate today to help keep WJCU alive for another 55!

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 card

Everyone pledging at the $10 level or above will receive a thank you and acknowledgement from the WJCU staff that serves as a donation confirmation for tax purposes.
Above the $10 level, we have a number of selectable premiums. Most of these gifts are not cumulative—you’ll only receive the premium at the level you select. Except the enamel pin at $88.70, which you’ll get in addition to your chosen premium!
