I Love WWNO!

Once Upon a Time there was a listener (you) who lovingly and regularly tuned into their dearest public radio station (us), and it was an immediate “happily ever after” situation from then onward.

This Valentine’s Day, New Orleans Public Radio is launching its first ever “I Love WWNO” campaign to help raise awareness about the importance of public radio, and to promote the value it has in our community.

The Whole Goal in Half the Time!

Sep 29, 2016

When Does Our Fall Membership Drive Start? It Has! And so far we've reached almost 30% of the goal. We need your gift NOW to make sure we only need to go on the air for half the time beginning on October 20th.

Our mission has been more relevant than ever during these last few months, and you can help ensure that we continue bringing essential news coverage — local, national and global — to you, your neighbors, and the whole region.

Wednesday, June 15 is WWNO Day at Whole Foods in metro New Orleans!

Whole Foods Market will donate 1% of net sales at all of its metro New Orleans stores to WWNO. Listeners can provide valuable support for the station by shopping at ANY of the four Whole Foods Market stores in the region:

Thank you, New Orleans! If you were able to donate to WWNO during GiveNOLA Day, we are so grateful.

We know that the site crashing was frustrating, but we have good news for anyone who tried to give but couldn't, due to the technical difficulties. You can still submit your intended pledge and it will count towards those precious Lagniappe Fund dollars and top prizes.

Fill out our handy form and provide your contact information, then the Greater New Orleans Foundation will be in touch to process your gift.

Celebrate Member Fest With Us!

Mar 2, 2016

It’s festival season in Southeast Louisiana! A time to enjoy everything our region has to offer: from strawberries to oysters, classical to zydeco, and WWNO is joining the celebration, with a special Spring Member Drive we're calling Member Fest.

There is plenty to celebrate as a member of WWNO. Your support brings Morning Edition and other trusted news programs from NPR and WWNO to our entire community — important programs during this pivotal election year – and helps us to tell New Orleans' stories to listeners around the world.

Support WWNO By Dec. 31

Dec 7, 2015

Our thanks to more than 130 listeners who contributed during our one-day on-air drive. If you were not among them, you still have plenty of time to make a monthly or one-time gift, donate your car, contribute stock, or even put WWNO in your will. We depend on your support to give voice to public radio. Thank you!

Our Fall ~Stealth Drive~ Has Begun

Sep 4, 2015

WWNO's Fall Member Drive Has Begun! But you might not have noticed...

"Morning Edition" and "All Things Considered" have aired as usual, broadcasting all the informative content that keeps you tuned in every day, and yet the Fall Member Drive is in full effect — under the radar!

We've made history together by raising more money than ever before without interrupting programming! As of right now, we need to raise $8,308 to meet our goal of $240,000 — as soon as we reach the goal we will end the pledge drive!

The most common question we get in the phone bank room during the drive is, “How much do I have to donate for you to go back to programming?” Well, this Spring the amount is $240,000.
