My employer participates in the employee matching gift program, what should I do?

The Human Resources Department of your company will be able to provide you with the necessary forms and any instructions that you'll need. Generally, the Matching Gift Forms require information from the donor (you) and the donation recipient (WICN). First, fill out any necessary personal information, then mail the form to:

We will fill in the rest of the necessary information and mail it back to your company for processing. Your company will then approve the matching gift and mail a check to WICN.

Why did I receive a pledge reminder letter even though I already sent in my contribution?

WICN tries to be as prompt as possible when processing gifts. There is always a possibility that your payment and our letters can overlap in the mail, especially during our membership drives. If you receive a reminder letter after having just sent in your pledge payment, please disregard the letter.

When will my "Thank-You Gift" arrive?

If you requested a "Thank-You Gift" when you made your pledge, it should arrive 3-4 weeks after we receive full payment of your pledge. If more than 4 weeks have elapsed since you sent full payment of your pledge, please feel free to contact the Membership Department either by phone, (508) 752-0700, or by e-mail,

Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
