Do you love WDVX? Does our Real Live Music make your Real Live Workday bearable? Become a sustainer today and show your support!

With over 28 percent of our entire operating budget coming solely from individual donors, we rely heavily on donors like you to help keep us on the air. As we move into our twentieth year on air, we’d like to encourage each of our donors to consider becoming a sustaining member of the station. With your monthly donation, WDVX is better able to focus on programming and plan expenses more accurately. More importantly, though, is that it’s easier for you to support the station at a level comfortable to you without having to remember to write a check.

WDVX is listener supported community radio. We’ve been keeping the music going since 1997, but we can’t do it without the dedicated support of our friends, listeners, underwriters, and volunteers. There are lots of ways that you can show your support to WDVX. Whether you want to make a one-time gift or become a sustaining donor, or even take part in our community rewards program with Kroger, we want to make it as simple as possible.

Would your business like to partner with us as an underwriter? Maybe you want to get involved as a volunteer.

Help us continue our mission of to create and provide content to promote the cultural heritage of East Tennessee and the Southern Appalachian region by entertaining and educating audiences globally with original programs showcasing live radio performance, under-represented arts, and emerging and local talent.

What does it mean to be a sustainer?

Being a sustainer means that you make annual monthly contributions. We rely on your continued support to exist and grow. By making a monthly donation rather than a one-time donation, you are sustaining us and giving us the ability to focus on programming and plan our expenses more accurately.

Why should I become a WDVX Sustainer?

  • It benefits our donors and the station
  • Easy on your budget; spread your donation out over a year instead of in one lump sum.
  • Never have to remember to “renew” your pledge or write a check
  • Helps us plan our budget by being able to count on your continuing support
  • Helps us cut down on costs associated with mailings

How does it work?

You may set up your monthly donations with your credit/debit card or checking account.

These donations are processed in house, allowing us to make changes to your account as necessary (no more signing up a second or third time because your card expired!) and come out of your account once a month.

Is there a minimum donation?

You may donate as little as $5 a month to be considered a WDVX Sustainer. We certainly still welcome smaller monthly donations, but to qualify for the perks of being a sustainer we ask that you donate at least $5 a month.

If you have any questions about your donation, please contact WDVX at 865-544-1029 or e-mail Tony Lawson at
