PhillyCAM presents WPPM 106.5 FM's 2024 Fund Drive: Wednesday, June 5th - Wednesday, June 12th, 2024

Join us in raising $7,500 in funds for our non-commercial, community radio station! During this week, we'll celebrate WPPM and rally support with special programming, live remote broadcasting and in-person events!

Whether we need cutting-edge software or on-the-fly repairs, your support will help cover these costs, sustaining the people-powered programming coming out of our station. Your gift will support updates and maintenance for our transmitter, antenna, tower, emergency alert system, turntables, radio board, remote broadcast tools, and other studio equipment.

Donations from this drive will not only keep the lights on, but will also support our mission to uplift local voices. Donate and acknowledge your support of your favorite WPPM show below!

Make a pledge to support our station's work to broadcast truly independent, diverse, locally focused non-commercial radio programming!
