Sponsor a Program
Become a Corporate Sponsor
As a business person, you can appreciate an investment that generates
the best return on every dollar spent. That’s why a corporate contribution
to Dayton Public Radio makes so much sense.
Benefits of Becoming a Sponsor
Look at all the benefits
you can expect to receive:
- Recognition as a Good Corporate Citizen
Research has shown that classical music listeners are well educated,
discerning individuals who appreciate the arts and the people
who support the arts. That your company is associated with "The
Voice of the Fine Arts" in the Greater Miami and Whitewater
Valleys will not be lost on our listeners.
- Top Efficiency of Your Advertising Dollar
If you explore advertising on commercial radio and sponsorship
of Dayton Public Radio, one thing becomes very clear, very quickly!
DPR sponsorship is significantly less expensive than commercial
radio advertising, so that means you can have your company’s
name before the public for a longer time for the same monetary investment.
- 100% Tax Deductible. DPR Sponsorship Is Completely
Tax Deductible. Try that one on commercial radio!
Since Dayton Public Radio is a bona-fide 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation,
every sponsorship dollar invested is fully tax deductible…just
the kind of thing that gives your accountant warm fuzzies.
Other Promotional Opportunities
- Challenge Grants. You may choose to
offer a challenge grant to our listeners during our bi-annual,
on-air fundraisers. Challenge grants give you and your company
an opportunity for extended recognition over and above the exposure
associated with regular program underwriting.
- Special Event Sponsorship. Sponsorship of special events throughout
the year, such as our Young Talent Search, celebrating classical music among our youth!

Sanderson Accounting, Inc.
It’s always wonderful when a longtime listener asks the question, “What can I do to support Classical 88.1?” In Ellen Sanderson’s case, she was already lending her personal support to the station, and decided to take an extra step by adding the support of her business – Sanderson Accounting Inc. For the last several years, her firm has been a program sponsor, helping to cover the costs involved in WDPR providing 24 hour classical and arts programming.
Ellen Sanderson has been doing accounting and taxes for over 15 years. "After raising a family, I thought about my interests and talents and went into accounting," she remembers. She worked as accounting manager for industrial companies, then switched to public accounting. After several years at a local CPA firm, she struck out on her own.
“It was a scary thing,” she says, in regards to starting Sanderson Accounting Inc. “I ended up landing a sizeable industrial account at the start because I spoke German, and they were a German based company,” she recounts. Others followed – more industrial clients, retail businesses, veterinary clinics and restaurants as well. “My core business is still industrial, but I have a lot of experience dealing with inventory and sales tax issues, so retail is another great area for me,” she explains.
So, what about these tough economic times, how can a good accountant help? “Credit is tougher to get, especially for small businesses looking to expand. I can help small businesses present their financials in the most positive way possible to help them look credit worthy to lenders,” Sanderson notes, adding, “I can also give advice on making do when necessary.”
Supporting Classical 88.1 has been a pleasure for Sanderson. “I love the programming because it is not some sort of a hybrid – it’s all classical. The musical offerings span so many centuries – from Mozart concertos to the occasional Gregorian chant. There is such richness in the programming,” she smiles.
The programming on Classical 88.1 goes even deeper for Sanderson. "As Dayton's Voice of the Arts, WDPR publicizes all the performing and visual arts. This helps me feel like I am part of an educated and culturally aware community," she closes.
