Thank You Gifts

General

How do I become a member of KMUW?

A donation of any amount makes you a member of KMUW. Discover the various premium levels and start the donation process here.

What are the various ways I can support KMUW?

When will my membership be due for renewal?

If you are a "Sustainer" who donates through automatic, monthly contributions, your membership will remain active until you cancel or change it.

If you renew your membership each year, your membership expiration date (and time to renew) is usually about one year from your last renewal contribution.

If you have any questions, you can contact our Membership Department at  membership@kmuw.org or 316-978-6789.

What is the recommended contribution for a basic membership?

Your gift of any amount makes you a member! Becoming a KMUW Sustainer with an ongoing, monthly contribution is a great way to support the station you rely on. Consider giving $20 per month.

Is my contribution tax-deductible?

Yes, your gift to KMUW is fully tax-deductible. Contributors who itemize their tax returns may deduct a portion of their contribution to KMUW. In order to comply with the Internal Revenue Service guidelines, the value/cost of the premium may NOT be included as part of the deductible contribution. Tax receipts are mailed every January.

How can I change or update my credit/debit card or bank account information for my monthly, sustaining pledge?

Please fill out our sustainer adjustment form or contact our Membership Department at at 316-978-6789 and we'll enter the new information into our secure database. Please don't email your credit/debit card number or bank account information to us.

Will KMUW sell or share my mailing address, phone number or email address?

KMUW does not, and will not, sell or exchange your personal information with anyone.

Could you please send me less mail?

Yes! Contact our Membership Department at membership@kmuw.org or 316-978-6789 and let us know how you'd like us to adjust your mailings.

How can I change my mailing address, phone number or email address with KMUW?

When will my thank you gift arrive?

All thank you gifts for KMUW's 2021 Spring Pledge Drive will be mailed. KMUW will be closed to the public until further notice in an effort to keep the public and staff safe and healthy. We will work to fulfill pledges as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience in advance!

Help! My thank you gift arrived damaged, or I received the wrong one!

Email membership@kmuw.org or give us a call at 316-978-6789 and we'll do our best to fix the problem. Thank you in advance for understanding.

Can I get a thank you gift from past membership drives?

Unfortunately, no. Generally we don't have much left from our drives, but what we do, we use for a variety of other things. We do occasionally sell past pledge drive shirts at events, like our annual "Fill Your Mug" listener appreciation event.  

What are the tax implications to me, and costs to KMUW, if I take a thank you gift?

Contributors who itemize their tax returns may deduct a portion of their contribution to KMUW. In order to comply with the Internal Revenue Service guidelines, the value/cost of the premium may NOT be included as part of the deductible contribution.
