WAMU 88.5 : About

Walt Gillette, Development Director

Since October 2002, Walt has served as the Director of Development for WAMU 88.5, the NPR News station in the greater Washington, D.C. area. The station’s development program accounts for approximately 50 percent of the station’s annual operating budget. For the most recently completed fiscal year ending April 30, 2014, WAMU's highly diversified individual giving program enjoyed a record year with approximately $11.554 million raised and pledged from more than 56,000 active donors. In the summer of 2013, the station relocated to a new facility on Connecticut Avenue in the nation’s capital, and significant major gift fundraising is well underway to fund the conversion of the building to create a media center and community resource.
