WBUR’s Marathon Triumphs at the Finish Line

Here & Now Co-Host Robin Young fundraising.

After an exhilarating 26.2 hours, WBUR reached its spring fundraising goal. Thank you to all of our dedicated members, listeners and volunteers for helping us to raise a record-breaking $1.2M in the WBUR Marathon, a 26.2 hour fundraiser to help keep democracy running. Among the highlights:

  • With just 26.2 hours of live fundraising, WBUR raised $1,227,997 from 9,644 donors.  This represents a 22% increase in revenue and an 8% increase in the number of gifts over last year.
  • With active presences on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube, the #teamWBUR hashtag generated 5,098,348 impressions that reached over 2M unique users (as of 1pm, April 6).   Our Facebook Live campaign generated 14.6K views.
  • See some behind-the-scenes photos taken by WBUR Photographer Jesse Costa in our WBUR Marathon album.

More than ever, WBUR would not be here without you and your support. Thank you.
