Contest Rules

PUBLIC BROADCASTING ATLANTA
PBA-WABE 90.1FM 2018 FALL FUND DRIVE OFFICIAL RULES
(SEPTEMBER 24 – OCTOBER 26, 2018)

 

 

On September 13, 2018, WABE celebrated our 70th anniversary and for the Fall Member Drive we’re trying to get back to regular programming as soon as possible.  To do this, we need to reach a financial milestone of $770,630 in verified donations by Friday, October 19, 2018. For this to happen, we estimate that we would need 7,070 individual donations, at an average donation of $109.00. This amount ($109) is based on trends from previous member drives.  It means that 7,070 donations would yield $770,630. However, WABE reserves the right to seek ADDITIONAL donations, should the average donation amount drop below $109.00.  The understanding is that once we reach the financial milestone of $770,630 in verified donations, the on-air portion of the member drive can end.
