Have Questions About Year-End Giving To WWNO?

We are at 75% of our $100,000 year-end goal, and maintaining efforts to bring in the rest!  We are also using the end of the tax year to bring in more gifts for Classical 104.9.  As December 31st approaches you may have questions—or be asked questions by other people—about year-end giving to WWNO, or about Classical 104.9 FM.

QUESTIONS? NEED HELP?  Reach me at my cellphone number  504 256 9655 or personal e-mail

Although UNO is closed between Christmas and New Year’s, and WWNO will have only a skeleton staff, I plan to be in the office some of the time, certainly Friday December 30th, and I will be available by phone or e-mail.

(You may write me at, but I’ve known remote access to fail, so if you want a reply soon, use the personal address, or phone/text me.)

EASY WAYS TO GIVE BY 12/31  Please give by 11:59:59 on December 31st for your gift to be eligible for 2016 tax deduction. That’s the deadline for gifts made via or via 800-286-7002.   Gifts sent by mail should be post-marked no later than 12/31/16—that’s what matters if audited.  You may bring your gift to the station or I’ll pick it up—either way, call me 504 256 9655.

CAR DONATIONS   You have until December 31st to initiate and complete a car donation and qualify for a tax deduction.  That does not mean you must have the car towed away by the 31st!  This link takes you to our Car Talk Vehicle Donation page.  Or you may phone 866 789 8627 to do the donation by phone.

CLASSICAL 104.9 FM    We have $70,000 left to raise toward the $225,000 capital goal.  If there are any questions about Classical 104.9 or giving in support of this campaign, please contact me:  504 256 9655 or
