KISU’s fundraising goals are tied to its commitment to elevating local, state, and regional reporting and news content for its East Idaho listeners.  
Your organization or business agrees to match up to *amount desired* from KISU listeners. Pledges must be made during the End of Year Pledge Drive, beginning November 25, and will run through till December 31. Your business's pledge match commitment will be included an estimated 10 times per $100. Through the month of December, your organization or business would be continuously mentioned during the designated period on KISU. Thank you announcements mentioning your business will also air in January.
