Fall 2018 Matching Gifts Challenge


Over the past two years, 60 individuals have provided a pool of matching gifts in advance of our Fall Radiothons, raising $21,500 for Radio Boise while inspiring new donors to become first-time donors, monthly sustainers, and new Hi Fi Society members who know their own contributions will be matched dollar-for-dollar. To say that it’s had an impact on our ability to remain independent would be an understatement.

In 2018, can you help play a special part in supporting Radio Boise by taking part in our Challenge Matching Gift Campaign? Here’s why your support is so important as we head into our Fall Radiothon and plan for 2019.

You can help make a huge difference for your community with a Challenge Matching Gift to Radio Boise. Bringing in new donors is absolutely critical for any community radio station, and matching gifts offered up by other individuals and organizations increase the chance that someone else will give to a charitable cause by 71%.

Gifts of any size given toward the Fall Radiothon Matching Gift Challenge will be matched by others who share your sense of commitment to independent, freeform radio who are more likely to take action when they are given an additional and truly meaningful incentive to make that call or donate online.

If you believe that community radio is unique in its ability to inspire, connect, and challenge ourselves, we hope you’ll consider making a gift of any size toward our Fall Radiothon Matching Gift Challenge.

You can either give today through our online system, or fill out the pledge form and return it to Radio Boise at 1020 West Main Street, Suite 50, Boise, ID 83702 by October 15th if you prefer to pay by cash, check, or fulfill your matching gift after the drive. Your support has always meant the world to us, and thanks for helping keep community radio strong!
