Support WLVR. Get thanked with a Gift!

It’s the Holiday Season after all, and WLVR would like to thank all our donors who help fund the Lehigh Valley’s all day, every day NPR station’s invaluable local public news and information. Your financial support will bolster our coverage through 2022 and beyond. Donate right now and you will receive:

A WLVR Pint Glass + Exclusive Member Invite:  Become a sustainer at $7.60 a month (or more!) and we’ll hand you that pint glass filled with delicious beer courtesy of McCall Brewing Collective in Allentown.  You’ll be invited to a special member Happy Hour this January. Look for your invitation in your inbox a day after your donation. Space is limited, so give now before the slots fill up. DONATE

2 WLVR Pint Glasses + 2 Exclusive Member Invites: For $12.50 a month you get the same as above, but you can invite a fellow public-radio-loving friend! DONATE

Annual New York Times Digital Subscription: For $10 a month or a $120 one-time donation enjoy “all the news that’s fit to print” (after you finish listening to WLVR’s Morning Edition, of course). DONATE

WLVR Tote Bag: It’s the required public radio uniform, and it is yours for $5 a month or a $60 one-time donation. DONATE

Already a member? Upgrade your support by increasing your monthly donation or—if you’ve only donated once—become a monthly sustainer.
