Once again, our supporters, sponsors and volunteers came through with flying colors and another successful FESTIVAL, which met our goal to raise $1 million during our 16-day on-air fundraising campaign that ended Sunday evening.
“With mail, on-air, Web, and FESTIVAL 2015 sponsors, but not any of the challenges, or match money, we ended up at $1,016,000 in round numbers,” said Ron Pisaneschi, Idaho Public Television general manager. “I’m very pleased with the results but even more proud to work with those who put in long hours and lots of extra effort to make it a success. And on behalf of Idaho Public Television, I sincerely thank the many supporters who helped us reach our goal.”
As of the final night of FESTIVAL 2015, we welcomed an estimated 1,312 new members — just short of our new-member goal of 1,400. Anyone wishing to make a donation may still do so by calling (208) 373-7220 or 1-800-543-6868 and speaking to anyone in Member Services.
