Help Fortify KPTZ with Fall Funds ~ This Week!

It’s the 2019 KPTZ Fall Fund Drive all this week, Monday, October 28 thru Saturday, November 2. Our ambitious goal to raise $40,000 will help fund our budgeted expenses as we gear up to move the station into larger, soundproof studios and office being built “as we speak” in the flagship Makers Square building on the Fort Worden campus.

New for this year’s Drive are KPTZ Fortifier glasses, KPTZ’s gift to acknowledge sustaining donations of just $5 a month (or a one-time donation of $60). Again, for larger donations we offer “Maximum Max” T-Shirts in all sizes, as well as KPTZ Vests and Hoodies. Additionally, while supplies last, there are also a few KPTZ Deep Squeeze Hoodies and pairs of passes to Key City Public Theatre’s holiday performances of Mercy Falls and of Spirit of the Yule.

In recent weeks it’s become more and more apparent how much we need more space and updates to support our on-air broadcasts. Many days when recording in our production studio, engineers have to remind others working normally at the station to speak more softly in order to obtain a good recording. And last week when we received the boxes of KPTZ Fortifier glasses for the new donor gifts, these fit inside only by using a shoe horn.

This is certainly a pivotal time of growth for KPTZ. Your help along with others who pitch in is what will keep us broadcasting and propel us into our new home less than one year from now. We can’t thank our generous donors enough!
