Year-end Telethon Commencing: $ecuring Our Intelligentsia
Live Telethon begins December 26. Blessed 2017!
NATIONAL ― As-Salaam-Alaikum (Peace be with you).
As we enter the final days of 2016, we’re especially grateful for the opportunity given us to build an intelligentsia in service to you and all our institutions.
You’re invited to help us continue the work that funds the #1 Islamic radio station in the nation and supports the infrastructure for eleven intelligentsia divisions serving our group intellect and beyond.
Join in supporting this magnificent work to build a national intelligentsia to support you and all our institutions and communities. Join us right after the Christmas Holiday beginning Monday, December 26 at 7 a.m. EST as we kick off the End-of-Year CWSC – AM360 National Radio Telethon. Join hosts, the CEO of AM360, Dr. Aisha Kareem, members of the AM360 Governance Committee, and CWSC Board of Directors and of course our listenership, as we conduct a major fundraiser to raise $10,000 and help us sustain and continue expanding operations.
We ask you to make your tax deductible contribution online right here at cwsc.us and of course giving prior to December 31st allows you to take advantage of 2016 tax deductions.
Just look for the blue donate button at the top right of our website to make a convenient, safe and secure contribution in whatever amount is comfortable for you. You have the choice to make a one-time or a recurring contribution. A recurring donation means the monthly amount is automatically deducted from your designated account to CWSC. You can cancel your recurring donation anytime. We hope you’ll consider becoming one of our recurring contributors which helps us better forecast our operating revenues and know we have your support each month.
While we welcome the most generous donations, every contribution is a blessing. Our most popular recurring giving level is just $9.99 a month or 33 cents a day. It’s a small gift because it’s based on each of us doing our part so there’s no undue burden on any one of us. And although it’s a small amount, your 33 cents a day at CWSC goes a long way supporting scholarships and cultural historic preservation programs; the model communities national resources directory and volunteer resource network; internship and leadership development programs; the national think tank and speakers bureau; share your jumah and more than 30 other Islamic broadcasting programs and growing, all serving our entire community and beyond.
You can also call in and pledge by phone at (910) 317-0297 or email email@example.com and tell us your name, telephone and email and a representative will assist you with making your contribution.
And if you’d like to mail in your gift, please make your check or money order payable to CWSC and mail to:
2620 Bragg Boulevard, Suite D
Fayetteville, North Carolina 28303
We also invite you to join us live on air at (515) 605-9891 and share your pledges and reflections. Tune in online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/americanmuslim360
Because of Your Support…
We published our first public policy document for the world when our CWSC delegation attended a history making general assembly session at the highest level of global shuraa—the United Nations, with voices from our group intellect speaking to a universal human concern on drug policy and criminal justice reform. See the Resolution here.
This year we’ve added a fifth college scholarship to help secure our next generation intelligentsia by investing in their future today, all while sharing the historical legacies of those who helped make a home for Al-Islam in America.
We’re gearing up via the CWSC National Speakers Bureau to help take our voices deep into the centers of influence throughout America, and we’re preparing to do what no other national broadcast center has ever done—galvanize its listenership to engage beyond dialogue, to the next level of working together to tackle the social justice crises of our time. And it’s just the beginning.
We achieve possibilities because of supporters like you investing in a powerful mission to unleash and harness the full capacity inherent in the group intellect. Thank you to all our contributors and supporters including our listenership, hosts and all volunteers, our imams, masajid and other leaders and institutions across the nation, and all our faith communities and brethren who support us…Thank you for sharing in the vision and mission.
Special gratitude to all donors who started their gift-giving early for the December 26 official Telethon kickoff raising $1,080 towards our $10,000 goal. We wish all a safe holiday period & Prosperous 2017! See you on-air.
