Spring Pledge Drive 2021

WHQR's Spring Pledge Drive has arrived! We are off to a great start and we are eager to meet our goal of $175,000 so we can continue providing essential programming (and eliminate the Summer Stealth Drive). Pledge today.

WHQR is celebrating a lot of growth this spring. We've just published our brand new website to help you easily find all of our newest stories; our newsroom is growing (meet our newest reporter and host here); and we're in the process of installing a powerful generator so we’ll be able to keep more of the Cape Fear region informed even when the power is out. WHQR can grow only because of the support we receive from members and listeners.

We are so excited about the gifts available during this Pledge Drive. We asked our listeners to submit t-shirt designs inspired by their love for public radio and we received so many wonderful designs. The winning design, "WHQR On My Mind" created by Mar'Emilia Borja, will be printed on our tall coffee mugs (for a pledge of $5 a month) and t-shirts (for a pledge of $10 a month). We also have day sponsorships and NYTimes subscriptions available.
