Building Our Future: The Campaign for a Stronger WDAV

WDAV has launched a special campaign to invest in both its broadcast and digital infrastructure, and to assure ongoing programming initiatives. Funds raised from this effort will help the station embrace the challenges of our world’s fast-paced technological change and ensure that classical music has a vibrant and meaningful presence in an increasingly diverse cultural arts landscape.

The objectives realized by this campaign will help WDAV maintain its leadership role in the classical public radio marketplace. WDAV’s last capital campaign was over a decade ago and resulted in the Newell Building, its current home. The present campaign will enable the station to make the most of this facility and build a strong future for its mission. 

This effort includes four important emphases: 

I. New Broadcast Antenna - $300,000 
To restore and increase WDAV’s full signal pattern to enable the station to serve a wider segment of the population via broadcast 

II. Website Redesign - $80,000 
To overhaul the WDAV website to provide a state-of-the-art player, intuitive site navigation, more compelling on-demand content, and the ability to expand to new digital platforms 

III. Studio Enhancements - $120,000 
To upgrade the existing studios with the latest equipment and technology to enable WDAV to provide sophisticated recording, production and programming operations for its many initiatives 

IV. WDAV Programming Fund - $500,000 
To provide dedicated resources in support of WDAV’s national programming initiatives such as Concierto and World of Opera by covering production and distribution expenses 

Thank you for your consideration. Your support is vital to ensure WDAV’s presence in our region continues to be “fortissimo!”
