Supporters of WAYO,
WE DID IT! And we could not have done it without YOU!
With your support we have surpassed our Kickstarter goal of $16,000. The Kickstarter campaign ended at midnight with $17,260. In addition to the proceeds from the Kickstarter campaign, we raised $1,521 from a week of pop-up fundraisers around Rochester that included a clothing swap, concerts, and an open house.
Funds from these events and any contributions from this point on will go directly towards the development of our live performance room. The performance room is especially beneficial to our capacity to fully function because it hosts live performances by Rochester-based musicians and many of our programmers are musicians, comedians, artists and other creative people.
We are excited to start our break-out year as a fully operating, 100% volunteer-run radio station. This milestone brings the four-year startup period to a close and launches WAYO with a vibrant schedule of programs, a professional studio, and financial stability.
Thank you so much for the outpouring of support that you have shown during the duration of this campaign. Whether in the form of your donations, your attendance at our events, enthusiasm about the launch—your support means the world to us and none of our accomplishments would have been possible without it.
We hope to continue to bring you music, laughs, fun, and conversation for years to come!
*P.S. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for details on the shipment of campaign perks.*
