I’ve seen WSCA sometimes sponsoring concerts, events and festivals around Portsmouth. What does that mean?

WSCA is pleased to work with non-profit organizations around town. Whether its an event, show, concert, or festival. As a sponsor of a non-profit event, WSCA provides the organization with on-air promotion, often in return for underwriting and/or complimentary entrance to events. As a non-profit sponsor, WSCA never gives monetary funds to partnering organizations.
