The Fall 2021 Fund Drive is October 20 to 27.

Please pick up your shirt and other thank you gifts at the station. Volunteers will be set up outside the station (1621 W. Broad Street) Monday to Friday from 5:30PM-7:30PM during the fund drive and from 11:00AM-5:00PM on the Saturdays and Sundays (10/23 & 10/24 and 10/30 & 10/31) during and immediately after the fund drive for easy street pickup.

If you pay $5.00, volunteers will mail your gifts starting in November 2021. For the safety of our listeners and volunteers, the station won’t be open to the public during this fund drive.

If you give after the fund drive, WRIR will still send you a shirt and other thank you gifts as long as supplies last. We cannot guarantee the most recent fund drive shirt in the particular size you want.

From our first broadcast in 2005 to this year’s 16th anniversary, listeners like you have supported WRIR with your financial gifts. 82 percent of the money used to power WRIR comes from listeners like you. How will you support Richmond Independent Radio? Will you give every month or give one time?
