Please Consider a Donation!

WREN is a non-commercial community radio station.  Our staff is volunteer but our other costs are similar to any other radio station.  Those include office and tower space, electricity, music licensing, streaming audio and web hosting, office supplies, as well as equipment maintenance upgrade costs.

Additionally, Saga Communications (Charlottesville Radio Group) filed a largely baseless petition to deny our FCC license which has cost us $4,000 in legal fees this year adding a significant burden to our finances. It is likely that the primary reason for this filing is that they would like to eventually acquire our frequency for their own use. They already own 125 stations including six in Charlottesville.

Any donation is appreciated!  As we are an IRS 501(c)3 organization, your donation will be fully tax deductible.  You may use our PayPal button or contact us directly to make a donation and, we aren’t greedy!  Even $5 or $10 will be appreciated.  For donations of $35 and above, we will be glad to toss in a T-shirt albeit we haven’t ordered them yet so there may be a small wait.

The PayPal ‘Donate’ buttons at both the top and bottom of the page are linked the the ‘Genesis Communications, Inc.’ PayPal account. Genesis Communications is the non-comm corporate name for WREN.

If you would prefer to send a check, our address is:

WREN Radio Station
Virginia Radio Coop
394 Hillsdale Dr.
Charlottesville, VA 22901

Thank you for reading this!

    How should I make a donation by check … to what, and where to? I do not make credit card donations anymore after problems, nor do I trust PayPal.

    Recommend you post check payment donation info on your site, plus move your donation button to a more prominent location … had a hard time trying to find, and almost gave up.
