Support WHYR

Thank you for considering a donation to support WHYR, Baton Rouge Community Radio.

Thanks to all those who supported 96.9FM in our recent 2019 Summer Pledge Drive. If you weren’t able to participate in the drive, you can still give your support to WHYR. From all of the volunteers here at WHYR, a heartfelt thanks for your support!

WHYR is a all-volunteer non-profit community radio station sustained primarily by donations from listeners. It is a project of the Baton Rouge Progressive Network, a 501(c)(3) non-profit (see IRS Determination Letter). Your donations are tax-deductible.

If you would prefer to set up an automatic monthly donation of any amount, please see our separate recurring donations page. Automatic monthly donations are a big help to our station budget and are easier on your budget than a one-time pledge.

We deeply appreciate your generosity and your support!

Annual Operations Fund

This is a listener-supported station run by unpaid volunteers. To stay on the air, each year we need to raise $30,000 to cover the unavoidable operations expenses (rent, utilities, insurance, licensing, hosting). Your donations are tax deductible. (WHYR is a project of BRPN, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.) Thanks for your support!
