You can help KLRU win $5,000!

Posted on Feb 22, 2019

Amplify Austin is our city's annual celebration of giving, when over 700 area nonprofits fundraise together to make the biggest social impact. The more people give back, the more organizations that participate, the more everyone is rewarded.

Did your family grow up watching public television? Do you turn to KLRU for information from NewsHour or Decibel? Is Masterpiece your cue to relax from a stressful week? If you value the high-quality content on KLRU, then you don't wanna miss Amplify Austin.

This day of generosity starts 6 p.m. February 28 and ends 24 hours later at 6 p.m. March 1.

But you don't have to wait! Make your gift today and help KLRU win the $5,000 booster prize for the most Early Bird Donations. Any amount received by 5:59 p.m. February 28 goes toward our Early Bird count!

And local business Equistar has stepped up and offered a matching challenge. They'll double all Amplify Austin Early Bird donations to KLRU up to $2,500! Giving now means your dollars will go twice as far.


Prefer to give back DURING Amplify Austin? That's great too! Matching challenges will be available from generous local sponsors when you make a donation during Amplify's 24-hour period.

Your gift to KLRU does real good. The money that we raise goes directly back to paying for the community services and programming that absolutely would not exist without support from neighbors like you. Below are some cost breakdowns to illustrate just a bit of what it takes to keep KLRU on air, online and on the ground.

YOU make a difference. Join us as we Amplify Austin and be proud of the positive change that comes from your investment in KLRU. The power of group philanthropy connects hundreds of Central Texas nonprofits in one unifying goal: making this home of ours a better, more giving place to live.

P.S. Tito’s Handmade Vodka is spreading the Amplify Austin love! Make a gift to your favorite nonprofit and Tito’s will add an extra $5 to your donation up to $10,000—just be sure to choose "Add a Public Message to this Donation" and then enter #LoveTitos.
