The beat goes on Founder’s Fund

Dave Beaton and Arlene Sweeting have established the Founders Fund to  ensure that the beat goes on at WSLR+Fogartyville well into the future. The Beat Goes On Campaign is a separate fund-raising effort from WSLR’s Membership Support program which supports operating expenses and programs that are a part of the regular annual budget.  The money raised for the Fund will be invested to support the long-term growth and sustainability of WSLR+Fogartyville.
