Spring 2018 Fundraiser Premiums and Gifts
Spring 2018 Membership Campaign:
Premiums and extra gifts (while they last)
Anyone who contributes is welcome to come by KGLP to pick up such 25th anniversary mementos as a KGLP logo pen, bumper sticker, or other freebies, while supplies last.
Any new member donating $25 or more, or any renewing member donating $25 more than last time, may reserve a KGLP pendant (every one unique and hand-blown), Gallup-canned Prickly Pear Jelly, or a dozen Baklava baked by Dr. Samir Wahid, while supplies last.
A $200 donation qualifies any member for a day sponsorship - this is your personal message that KGLP would record, a formal "shout out" on a special day of your choosing, with a script that we would work with you to mark a special occasion. For example: "The Langford Family congratulates their child, Keisha, on her pending graduation from Diné College, and want their friends and neighbors to know how proud they are! Please join us in celebrating her academic career. For more details, our friends may contact us at their leisure." - this sort of message would air a minimum of 10 times during that day. You might even focus on a shout-out for a non-profit organization, public service, or event. You can also drop off a check or go to KGLP.org's home page and donate directly with Credit, PayPal, or Bank Transfer, then come by to pick up any gifts or premiums.
We may have a little art on hand, too, for donations of $100 to $800 or more. Of course, the greatest gift that comes with your support of KGLP is public radio in Gallup and the surrounding area. Thank you for your help sustaining KGLP!

Protect My Public Media
Viewers and listeners appreciate that public media is non-commercial and available for free to all Americans.
While CPB funding looks like it will be stable for at least a year, any elimination of federal funding to CPB begins the collapse of the public media system itself and the end of this essential national service.
On July 13, 2017, the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee that sets public media funding levels passed a draft bill. There is both great news and bad news.
The Great News: The draft bill provided essential public media seed funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in its draft bill. This is a tremendous victory that could not have happened without your outreach to Congress. But your help is needed once again.
The Bad News: While we saved one important program, funding for public media's Interconnection infrastructure system was eliminated.
Interconnection enables virtually every American to receive local station programming for free - reaching even the most rural parts of the U.S. The system allows your stations to distribute programming, as well as public safety, national alert, and warning communications.
If Interconnection funding is eliminated, it becomes nearly impossible for local stations to broadcast your favorite programs and important public safety communications to you.
You helped us take an important first step toward providing funding for local stations in the House Bill. Now we need your help to save Interconnection.
Email your lawmakers https://protectmypublicmedia.org/email-save-funding/ and tell them to fully fund public media, including Interconnection.
Funding levels for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Interconnection are not final, yet.
We have a small window of opportunity to voice our support for this program. As early as next week, Congress could move legislation that could help or hurt our cause.
We're on the right track to protect all public media funding, but we must stay active.
It's going to take all of us - viewers and listeners - working together to keep our nation's public media system strong and accessible to every American.
So, please email your Members of Congress today to protect your connection with your stations.
If the House passes this bill, then it falls to the Senate to propose their own cuts - Contact your U.S. Senators and anyone else about the importance of public radio in your life.
