10 Other Ways You Help WXXI!

As a member of WXXI, you are already supporting your public broadcasting station by doing more than just listening or viewing...you're actively contributing!  That's vital for the future of the station and your favorite programs, and we can never say "thank you" enough! But if you’re looking to become more involved in the station, here are 10 great ways to do so.

  1. Visit WXXI – come to an event http://wxxi.org/events or ask for a tour -  email Jane Pitt at jpitt@wxxi.org.
  2. Get personally involved.  Volunteer to assist in one of our membership campaigns, community outreach events or other events at the station. Contact our Membership and Volunteer Manager, Carolyn Reynolds at creynolds@wxxi.org for future opportunities today.
  3. Give timely feedback.  Send an e-mail message to membership@wxxi.org when you hear something you don't like, but especially when you hear something that you think is wonderful!
  4. Keep us in mind.  Refer a business associate, a friend, a client, or a peer to WXXI for individual membership, program underwriting, or event sponsorship. Contact Laura Garrison, Vice President of Development at lgarrison@wxxi.org.
  5. Exercise your rights.  Contact your elected officials to voice your concern about the sometimes-uncertain future of public media funding. Here’s a great place to start: http://protectmypublicmedia.org/

Post on social media and tag @WXXIrochester.  Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper when you want to say "thanks to WXXI."  Share information about upcoming WXXI programs and events...and forward this copy along to a friend who also enjoys public radio or television
