Over the course of the past year WDFH has brought local news, local music and other valuable information to the airwaves of the lower Hudson valley. Sadly, without in increase in financial support we will not be able to continue to provide these services. If you've ever tuned in to listen to one of our programs, please consider a donation to keep us on the air.
If you have already made a contribution we sincerely thank you. If you know of someone who might be able to help the station, please act on our behalf and tell them about our cause. WDFH is a labor of love and we don't want to see it end now after all these years.
WDFH is community public radio — the only public radio station in the lower Hudson valley. All public radio stations rely on local tax-deductible financial support from listeners and businesses.
Why contribute to WDFH?
WDFH is committed to providing you with a thoughtful, commercial-free programming service. That means that your ears, and your intelligence, aren't assaulted by the 18-20 minutes per hour of ads you hear when you listen to commercial radio. Think about it: that's one third of your listening time wasted on stuff you really don't want to hear.
But (you knew there was a "but," didn't you?)... Community support is an essential part of the equation. It costs a lot of money to run WDFH and to develop this relatively new radio station so that it can fulfill its potential — and while providing a rare program service with no commercials is a big plus for all of us, the downside is, of course, that we don't have the income that commercials bring.
Community public radio is community-supported radio, so we need your financial support — the things we're working for can't happen without your help. No contribution is too big or too small.
Please consider monthly giving. It's an easier way to make a significant donation. $50 a month means a $600 annual donation to WDFH; $100 a month gets you over the $1,000 mark. But whatever works best for you is fine.
After you give, please check with your employer to see if it has a matching gift program — many companies have one, and it's an easy way to leverage your donation to have a bigger benefit for WDFH.
It is only since early 2011 that WDFH has had a studio and a viable signal at the same time. We've put the pieces together, and we need to build public support in order to move WDFH to the next level. Please step up and make your contribution today!

The fine print (and it's not half bad): WDFH is owned and operated by Hudson Valley Community Radio, Inc., a local not-for-profit corporation that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax-deductible.
