Pledge $150 and we'll thank you with this super-soft microfleece hoodie. It will add extra warmth for your early morning walks or for cozying around the house. It has a full zipper, front pockets, and a slimming cut creating a gently contoured silhouette. Thumb holes in the cuffs help keep hands warm. And, of course, it's emblazoned with a white WRTI logo.
The Lancaster Symphony Orchestra's new season - Energy, Exuberance & Excellence! - kicks off with two dynamic fall concert themes at the Historic Fulton Opera House. And there's a special offer just for WRTI listeners!

This is must-have logo item! Show your friends, family, and neighbors just how much you love WRTI when you wear this classic navy-blue baseball cap with the WRTI logo on the front, and the website address on the back.
Rather than settling for one percent growth on your savings from banks or bonds, earn more with a WRTI Charitable Gift Annuity. An annuity or trust allows you to support WRTI and the classical music and jazz that you love, while setting up an income stream that you never have to worry about.
It lets you "do good," while you're “doing well,” with the additional bang you get from minimizing income taxes.
As we get closer to the end of WRTI's fiscal year on June 30th, I'd like to express how very grateful we are to all of our members who contributed during the last year.
If you renewed online, gave an additional gift because you received a letter, contributed for the first time because of a member drive, donated a vehicle, arranged a planned gift...thank you! If you're one of over a thousand sustaining members who invest in WRTI every month...thank you! It's all greatly appreciated.
Last Wednesday, I read a moving letter on the air from Francesca Martinez when I inducted her family into the Sousalarm Club. So many of you responded to her heartfelt message, and asked if you could read it online, that we have posted it here (see below), with Ms. Martinez's consent. It's a poignant reminder of how transcendent the power of music can be, and of why this work, this station, and this art form matter so much.
