WUKY GoodGiving Challenge

Oct 25, 2013

WUKY is looking to it's listeners for a successful campaign! 

What better way to give back to the community than donating to WUKY.  Lexington Farmers’ Market is partnering with us once again this season.  And, for every $1,000 we raise, they will donate $100 worth of food product to God’s Pantry Food Bank.  Donate today at WUKY.ORG.


Join the Challenge!   WUKY is participating in the 2013 GoodGiving Guide Challenge, making us eligible for thousands of dollars in cash prizes!

The 2011 Challenge raised over $200,000 for 58 Lexington nonprofits, and the 2012 Challenge raised $586,000 for 68 nonprofits in seven counties. This year our goal is to raise $1 million for 108 nonprofits in central Kentucky! We’re expecting great things!

Note:  All contributions must be made through the www.GoodGivingGuide.net pledge page.  To help us compete for cash and prizes, we are asking friends and supporters like you to donate as much as you can to WUKY via www.GoodGivingGuide.net anytime between 8:00 a.m. on November 1, 2013 and 11:59 p.m. December 31, 2013.

What is the GoodGiving Guide Challenge?  It’s a partnership between Blue Grass Community Foundation and Smiley Pete Publishing (Chevy Chaser Magazine, Southsider Magazine and Business Lexington) to promote online charitable giving to local causes.   In addition to the GoodGiving Guide’s online efforts, Smiley Pete Publishing will be reaching out to its reader base with a print edition of the Guide, which will provide a detailed profile of 108 local nonprofits, including WUKY.

Want to hear from some of the organizers of those local nonprofits in their their own words? Check out WUKY's GoodGiving Friends page to the right.

WUKY is also taking this Challenge one step further by partnering with the Lexington Farmers’ Market once again for our 2013 Winter Campaign.  For every $1,000 raised by WUKY, the Lexington Farmers’ Market will donate $100 worth of food product to God’s Pantry Food Bank, which could be a gift of up to $5,000 worth of locally grown/raised products to feed those in need!!!   

The faster you give online at www.GoodGivingGuide.net, the greater our chance of winning.   Plus there are many great incentive prizes for donors who give through the Challenge.   

The race is on for WUKY to attract as many online donors as we can!

Go to www.GoodGivingGuide.net and search for WUKY profile.  After making your gift, please tell your friends, family and colleagues about us and the GoodGiving Guide Challenge!
