Are you a leader?
Nearly 20,000 households support WCNY with general membership contributions. Our Leadership clubs recognizes the generosity of special members who have the means to support WCNY each year at levels far above the average.
Through the gifts of its members, the Producer’s Club and Signal Society provide a major source of annual support for WCNY’s programming and capital improvements. They also provide recognition, special benefits and services in appreciation of the generosity of their members.
Support at these levels not only ensures that you hear the programs you care about, but it also helps us achieve our mission of enriching our community. You play a powerful role in helping us maintain the high standards it takes to serve as one of our community’s most vital media sources.

A Central New York tradition
WCNY connects with the community in two fun-filled events – the televised TelAuc and Travel auctions – that bring together fabulous merchandise, services and trips from local and international vendors, a terrific crew of hundreds of donors and volunteers, and on-air participation by public figures from throughout Central New York.
Twice a year, WCNY viewers bid on items. On April 24, 25 and 26 and May 1, 2, 3, 9, and 10, they can bid on thousands of items in TelAuc — The Great TV Auction.
Both auctions provide a unique public relations and marketing opportunity for businesses to trade their goods and services for televised airtime. While viewers get great deals on quality trips, items and services, WCNY receives much-needed revenue to continue its educational services, quality programming and cultural broadcasts.
You can support WCNY in additional ways, including donating vehicles, providing memorial gifts, taking advantage of your employer’s matching gift program, volunteering and more.
