How Do You WWNO?

You Asked For It, And We Listened! The Shortest WWNO Pledge Drive In History Is Happening Right Now

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.
