Day of Dedication FAQ’s

What is the giving level required for a day sponsor?
For a contribution of $360 (WPR Donation) we will air a recorded spot five times on a specified day.  

How many announcements do I get, and when will they be aired?
The message will be announced during the broadcast day. We will follow a predetermined schedule for announcements, unless prohibited by technical difficulties or a special broadcast.

How long can my message be? 
We ask that you keep your message to 25 words or less. We will edit if necessary. We will let you know if the wording of your message has been changed.

Are there any limits on what my message can be about?
The purpose of the dedication is to acknowledge special events or people. Generally, we announce celebrations of birthdays and anniversaries or commemorate the memory of someone. An individual may recognize a non-profit organization, but the message may not be promotional in nature. A Day of Dedication cannot be used for business advertising or the expression of ideological, theological or political opinions. We will not accept pet names, business names, personal opinions or promotion of personal causes. Wyoming Public Radio reserves the right to evaluate all messages and to reject those that are deemed incompatible with our broadcast mission.

How much advance notice do you require to get my message on the air?
Day of Dedication are offered as space allows and on a first-come, first-served basis.  Our staff needs at least 5 business days to record and schedule the spots.

What if the date I choose is not available?
If you have a specific time in mind, we strongly recommend contacting us as soon as possible to ensure that we can reserve your time. Please email ddenison@uwyo.edu, or call 1-800-729-5897, or 307-766-4240.

How can I be sure my name will be pronounced correctly?
To assist our on-air announcers, please provide phonetic spelling for any words in your dedication which are commonly mispronounced.  (Example: Phonetic = foh-NEH-tihk)  Providing rhyming syllables helps too.

Does a Day of Dedication have a fair market value? (will requesting a Day of Dedication as my thank-you gift affect the tax deductibility of my contribution?)
No. Days of Dedication do not have a fair market value and therefore do not affect tax deductibility of your contribution.

I have another question not covered in your FAQ.
Please contact Wyoming Public Radio at 1-800-729-5897 or email Diana Denison at ddenison@uwyo.edu.

I have no more questions. I'm ready to donate my Day of Dedication on Wyoming Public Radio.
