• Hoorah for PFD!

    DSCN1094Hoorah for PFD! Karen and the staff at KCHU wished all our listeners a happy PFD Day yesterday! We hope you will consider giving some of that “chunk of change” as a donation to KCHU during our membership drive. This Fall membership drive will run through Tuesday, October 7th.  This is an exciting Fall drive for KCHU and we would love to hear from our members! We have worked to create a number of ways to make donating to KCHU easier:

    1. 1. You can now go to www.kchu.org, and click the big red donate button on the right side. That will take you through a page of information and then to the page to enter your donation information.
    • We now have an option to have an autopay from your card monthly! There is no additional fee to you. Just $10 a month (or more if you choose) will keep your membership active and will give $120/year of support to KCHU! Or just click the one-time donation and choose an amount. NOTE: If you enter your own amount rather than clicking a pre-written one, you MUST NOT PUT A $ SIGN IN FRONT OF THE AMOUNT or the computer will just sit and spin.

    2. You can also go to  https://www.facebook.com/kchupublicradio , click on the Donate/Shop tab at the top, and you are given a choice to pay membership dues and/or order a tee shirt.

    3. You can call 835-5080 or 800-835-5080 or 835-4665 and give your pledge and we will mail you a pledge reminder, or give your credit card information and we will be happy to process it and then destroy your card information.

    4. You can drop by the studio/office at 128 Pioneer in Valdez and fill out a pledge form, drop off a check, or give us your card information.

    5. If you already have an auto-pay system set up on your checking account, you can simply notify your bank to add KCHU to that list. Our mailing address is PO Box 467, Valdez, AK 99686.

    We hope these new options make it easier to show your support of KCHU.

    KCHU Development Director, Lanette Oliver, returned to Valdez yesterday from Cordova. Ms. Oliver traveled to Cordova Friday, September 19th and attended a Board of Directors meeting all day Saturday, September 20th. She stayed over to meet with Cordova businesses, non-profits, and underwriters including staff members at PWS Science Center, Cordova Chamber of Commerce, and Copper River Watershed Project. She did take time to enjoy the sunset over the Cordova Harbor on Sunday evening.  Lanette returned to Valdez on the ferry Wednesday morning and is hard at work preparing for the upcoming KCHU Fall Membership Drive to be held Tuesday, September 30th through Tuesday, October 7th. Many volunteers are needed to help man phones, stuff envelopes (with ballots – we also need Board member applicants!), mail t-shirts, etc. during the drive. If you can volunteer even an hour please email development@kchu.org or call 835-4665. If you are interested in applying for the KCHU Board, you can mail your letter and bio to PO Box 467 Valdez AK 99686 or email it to kchu770am@gmail.com or gm@kchu.org
