Dear NCPR friend--

The final tally for our Fall Fundraiser is $319,952, well past our $310,000 goal. Thank you for caring about and supporting the work we do at NCPR.

Increasingly, our listeners and online community are essential to making this a great public media organization. We cannot do it without you. Thank you for understanding that…and doing something about it.

You showed up! We all get to celebrate what we’ve created: North Country Public Radio. Thank you!

Ellen Rocco, NCPR station manager
