Ann Arbor Community Radio is taking part in the second annual GiveBig to MyStation giving days to support community radio. GiveBig to MyStation, scheduled for November 28 & 29 is an initiative of Management Information Solutions, Inc. in partnership with Click & Pledge. “Ann Arbor Community Radio makes a difference every day in our community through our diverse programming and access to media training” said David Pittman, General Manager of WEGV. “We are excited to partner with other stations across the country to see just how much we can raise to serve our communities.”
Beginning at midnight on November 28, supporters of Ann Arbor Community Radio can go to mystation.org and put WEGV in the search bar to make tax-deductible donations to support the important work of community radio. All online donations for Ann Arbor Community Radio at mystation.org during GiveBig to MyStation will go directly to support WEGV’s mission.
“Giving days have proven to be successful models for many different kinds of nonprofits and we think that community radio is a natural for this type of social fundraising effort,” said Mary Hall-Thiam, board member for Make This World Foundation, the station licensee. “We are excited to be part of this unique fundraising effort.” For more information about GiveBig to MyStation, visit mystation.org.
Members from the Society of Women Engineers chapter at the University of Michigan (SWE at UM) have been traveling to Liberia to work with undergraduate Liberian students since 2011, and the SWE chapter has partnered with L-SWE since its inception in 2013. This partnership most recently resulted in the inaugural L-SWE SUCCESS (Setting Up Collegiates for Careers in Engineering through Social Support) annual Leadership Camp in which ten students from SWE at UM travelled to Liberia to develop engineering leadership and organizational development skills.
