Supporters of Tacoma-Based KPLU Reach $7 Million Mark

The effort called Save KPLU lived up to its name Thursday afternoon, when KPLU General Manager Joey Cohn took to the stations airwaves to make the official announcement.

.

We reached our goal of $7 million, Cohn announced shortly after 3:30 p.m. in the studio packed with staff, supporters and media.

.

Now the Friends of 88.5 FM can make an offer to station owner Pacific Lutheran University to keep it out of the hands of the University of Washingtons KUOW.

.

It took 17,000 supporters of the Tacoma-based public radio station less than five months to donate the money. A fund-topping $500,000 matching contribution came from a collection of businesses and individuals.

.

In a typical fundraising effort, charities will first seek big donors before a public campaign. Save KPLU didnt have that option.

.

We didnt have the luxury of time. We just had to go, Cohn said.

.

Money was raised at over 85 community events. Cohn said he knows of no other situation in public radio that comes close to the fundraising efforts of Save KPLU.

.

Weve been saying we made public radio history, Cohn said. He cited $2 million dollars raised in less than a month for a station in Greeley, Colorado, as being the closest, and $1 million of that was a single donation. This kind of donations in this short of time, no, its never happened before, Cohn said.

.

Weve had 4-year-olds send in change, he said.

.

KPLU, which broadcasts news and public radio programing along with jazz and blues, has a large presence in Western Washington. In addition to 88.5 FM, it broadcasts on 10 repeaters from Bellingham to Raymond.
