2nd Week of Irish Aires Fund Raiser

An update: Last week we exceeded our goal (by $100).  Thanks to those who donated.

This week we will be finishing our spring fund drive.  Please consider donating.


Again, Irish Aires needs your help!!  KPFT is starting their spring Fund Raiser this week. 


Irish Aires & KPFT need your support.  We need to pull our weight in raising funds to keep the station on the air.  We have, over the long run, been able to do this because of your generosity. 


PLEASE help us continue!  To contribute do one of the following:


1)      Call us (713-526-5738) during the show (6-7pm on Sat night, May 21st, 2011) and give your pledge to one of our volunteers.

2)      Complete the form at the end of this & return it by email OR snail mail it to the radio station to Irish Aires attention.

3)      Go to and on the right side of the homepage click the DONATE button.  Make sure to choose to support IRISH AIRES In the drop down window.  Also please respond to this email to tell us you donated online and how much.  We handle all the IRISH thank you gifts, so contact us directly about those.


We don't need anyone to give a LOT , we need a LOT of people to give. 

Renew your pledge to KPFT & Irish Aires by donating what you can.

        Basic membership costs are $25 for students & people on a fixed or lower income; regular             membership goes for $35 per year (voting rights accrue at the $25 level).


If you can give more, we have been the beneficiaries of some Irish/Celtic music CDs that we would like to give you in return for a $60 contribution (even if you can only afford to pay it out at $5 per month). If you can contribute at the $90 level, you will get two of two of our CDs.


But it is more important for you to contribute, no matter what the amount. Wide-spread, small contributions give our station support from the community of people who appreciate our programming and internet information.


At whatever level you can support us, please do.
