Why Become a Member of Our Stations?
Your contribution enables us to bring you the best in national and local programs -- all of the programs that you love require significant investments on our part.
Our national program schedules bring you the best from PBS, NPR, PRI, and other national television and radio program sources, but we must pay high annual fees to obtain these programs on your behalf. Your direct financial support is essential.
At the regional level, we produce a wide array of programs that focus on issues and highlights from communities all across our coverage area. Our award-winnning local TV and award-winning local Radio news services not only bring you comprehensive daily coverage, but also train future journalists as students in the SIUC College of Mass Communication and Media Arts. Our local documentaries and features highlight the needs and resources of south-central Illinois and southeast Missouri in a way that no other local or national media can accomplish.
Our television station and radio station maintain separate budgets and separate memberships. When you make a contribution directly to the WSIU TV stations or the WSIU FM stations, your funds have a direct and immediate effect on our programming capabilities.
Basic membership for either is only $35 per year -- less than ten cents per day! Basic membership includes the appropriate userís guide (Previews viewer guide or Audition listener guide). However, many of our members contribute significantly more per year to support their favorite programs on one or both mediums: $60, $120, and $240 gifts are common. Our most ardent supporters -- our Leadership Circle Members -- contribute $1,000 or more each year to one or both stations. All membership contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
Memberships may be paid by credit card (MasterCard, VISA, or Discover), by electronic funds transfer or by personal check. SIUC employees can contribute through payroll deduction. It is not necessary to wait for the next membership drive to join WSIU; we encourage you to pledge now! If you already have made a membership gift this year, please consider making an additional gift pledge.
To become a member or to make an additional gift, please use our secure online pledge forms or complete and return the off-line pledge form. You will be contacted personally for your payment information to complete your membership transaction. Or, simply contact our membership office, 618-453-9748 or 800-745-9748 with your payment preference.
