November 15, 2017 is National Philanthropy Day, a great time for WTMD to let our members, donors, underwriters and listeners know how we support our community! Aside from our free events like Live Lunch and First Thursday, you may not be aware that WTMD supports many non-profit organizations by helping get the word out about important causes and needs within our community. We help organizations successfully fundraise for their causes through valuable donations of media support. Media support is donated in various ways: on-air interviews and performances, customized recorded spots highlighting fundraising events, social media posting, etc.
So far in 2017, WTMD has donated over $47,000 in media and promotions to local non-profit organizations. We are able to give back to the community in this substantial way because of our generous members and donors, grantors and underwriters. Please know that your support of WTMD also helps many organizations in the local non-profit community stay strong and successful!
Here are a few of the non-profit organizations WTMD supports with substantial media donations:
