Each year for the past seven years, the staff of Your Part-Time Controller has volunteered their time to assist WHYY with their Fall Membership Campaign. More than 20 staff members turn out to man the telephones for three hours and help Philadelphia’s public broadcasting radio and TV station to raise much-needed operational funds. YPTC’s support is more than just time and effort, though: the company offers matching contributions to augment the gifts made by call-in donors, and in 2009 Your Part-Time Controller contributed an additional $3,000 above and beyond what callers pledged.
Why do we do this? “WHYY is a great group to support,” says President and Founder Eric Fraint. “We believe in public broadcasting.”
