What is Underwriting?

Underwriting is an alternative to advertising with WONC, a non-commercial radio station.

Benefits to Underwriting

Announcements are unobtrusive and WONC does not cluster five or six of them into a four-minute break like a regular commercial break. Your message stands alone - it does not have to compete for the listener's attention.

Its inexpensive, underwriting support to WONC is tax-deductible!
You'll be assisting WONC to continue its popular community oriented programming with your contribution.
