A movement is afoot for individuals to embrace their inner nerd for public media. And to "nerd out" for something is to simply share your passion with the world, and to do so proudly! Help Illinois Public Media continue to bring you high-quality news, unparalleled arts programming, great classical music, essential early childhood educational tools and programming—with less on-air fundraising—by embracing your inner #WILLNerd by Oct. 10.

So... what WILL thing do you nerd out for? Do you geek out for Masterpiece? Do you know all of WILL and NPR hosts’ names and voices by heart? Did you grow up on Sesame Street and in Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood? Is every morning a Classic Morning?

This month, we invite to declare yourself a nerd for WILL, and join forces with 1,010 fellow WILL Nerds with a gift in support of your passions before Oct. 10, 2017. As with many recent campaigns, our goal with this fund drive is less on-air interruptions and more focus on how important YOU are to our success as a station.
