Support KMUW

Pledge Drive & Membership

KMUW’s financial support comes from a variety of sources, but no source is larger than the support that comes from our members. You can become a member at any time, but the largest concentration of members join during our semi-annual pledge drives each spring and fall.

Business Sponsorship

An important contribution to quality radio is made by foundations, corporations and individuals who provide funds to sponsor the presentation of the quality programs broadcast on KMUW. Business sponsorship is an effective way to reach an active and influential group of people who place a high value on life long learning and are actively seeking to improve quality of life for themselves and their communities. Click here to learn more.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are once-in-a-lifetime gifts, ultimately making a lasting, positive influence for public radio. If you are a contributing member of KMUW, a planned gift such as a bequest or beneficiary of your retirement account may be your next step in providing for KMUW’s growth – now and in the future.

There are many ways to make a gift. Jessica Treadwell, our director of major and planned gifts, can help you think strategically about how to support KMUW in a way that fits your unique interest and financial situation, so that you can maximize the impact you will have on the future of public radio.

IRA Charitable Rollover and Stock Gifts

You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further our mission.  If you are 70 ½ or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your individual retirement account (IRA) withdrawals.  An IRA Charitable rollover is a way you can help continue our work and benefit this year.

The gift of an appreciated asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is also a valuable way to make a contribution to a charitable organization and receive tax benefits based on the value of the asset(s). Find out more.
