WUTC Annual Reports
WUTC receives 20% of its annual revenue from individual contributors who donate during fundraising pledge drives in spring and fall. Local businesses in the community provide nearly the same amount (19%) in underwriting support.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) provides a yearly Community Service Grant which helps WUTC purchase programming content from NPR and PRI. Since this grant is only 8% of WUTC annual income, WUTC relies on contributions from the local community - individuals and businesses - to provide additional funding support.
The State of Tennessee and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga provide funding to cover operating expenses such as salaries and benefits, physical property maintenance, and utilities. UTC does not maintain or repair WUTC broadcast equipment or the WUTC transmitter tower facility. These expenses are incurred solely by WUTC.
