Thrive With 25.....25 Hundred Pledges, That Is!
Super Thursday, the VERY short fund drive, returns to NWPB October 11. The goal is to hear from 2,500 donors in just 13 hours. This has been a tradition at NWPB for more than 10 years. Of course, one-day drives are only possible because many listeners have responded with generous financial contributions. If you would like to keep fund drives short on NWPB, become a member with your donation on Super Thursday.   If you have never made a pledge, your first-time gift is more important than ever.
