Please consider a donation to WNUR today by calling 847-491-3655

Today is the one day of the year where we ask you to consider a donation to WNUR and the Folk Show. We have lots of great thank you gifts including concert tickets, CD’s, guest DJ slots and even some food this year. You can see all of the premiums right here. Just page down to the Folk Show section.

WNUR’s annual Phoneathon is the only time of the year we ask our listeners for their financial support. As an independent, commercial-free station this fundraiser is how we survive! A successful Phoneathon lets us keep our programming ad-free and will provide the resources to allow us to upgrade our equipment and to provide you with more consistent and robust show archives and special features.

If you wish to donate over the phone, call (847) 491-3655 during our show, and one of our operators will direct you through the process. You can also donate online, using Northwestern University’s secure donation system

You can donate all week by calling 847-491-3655, but why not call during our show between 10am-Noon today.

Thanks with love for your continued support.

Kathy, Sue and Ron
