Pledge Challenge Grants
Participate in KQED's Big Event and Gain Valuable Exposure!
Challenge Grants offer your company valuable exposure on KQED, plus the opportunity to support quality broadcasting in Northern California.
During a KQED pledge drive, your company is recognized as the provider of a Challenge Grant. Listeners are highly motivated to become members of KQED when they know that their contribution is actually worth twice as much to the station.
How It Works
During a Challenge Grant pledge break, we ask listeners to call in with their financial support. Your company is clearly and gratefully acknowledged for providing incentive for listeners to call.
Standard Challenge Grant Language
"During this break (company name) will generously match pledges, up to a total pool of $1000. For every pledge to KQED we'll get a matching pledge from (company name)."
Those pledges are matched up to the amount of your Challenge Grant for that break. For example, your $1000 Challenge Grant will be realized as $2,000 to KQED. Challenge Grants have proven to be very successful at KQED and at public radio stations all over the country. They instill a sense of urgency to our appeals, and add an element of excitement and fun to the pledge drives.
