KGNU's budget is relatively small because of the work of its 200 plus volunteers.
Still, money is required for KGNU's operating budget: programming, maintenance, salaries...
This is why we ask you, the KGNU listener and supporter, to help pay for KGNU's day-to-day operating costs with your membership.
If you value KGNU, as an alternative to corporate media, as a source of independent views and music, as a resource to be cherished and cared for, it's up to you to make it grow.
Please do so with your membership.
Your contribution to KGNU supports programs like Democracy Now!, The Morning Sound Alternative, Alan Watts and Old Grass Gnu Grass, and helps us pay for the systems that deliver these programs: expanded websites ( and, increased server capacity, our source to shift to open source software and renewable energy to power it all.

So, Join now!
How much?
On the average, your fellow KGNU listeners pledge over $100 / year. Here's the data.
We encourage you to pledge $88.5 (that's our frequency - clever, eh?) or $120 ($10 / month with a SOLR membership).
But we'll gladly accept your membership at the basic level of $40 ($30 for students, single parents and starving artists).
Many KGNU supporters want to do more. Call us or email us about a challenge grant to encourage others to pledge by increasing their contribution with your match

We are fiercely protective of your privacy:

  • We ask you for permission to use your name to thank you on the air.
  • We don't share our mailing list with anyone.
  • Only three staff members have access to the membership data.
  • The membership data is on a computer that is not connected to any other computers, in any way.

Payment options
You can pay for your membership:

  • with a Credit card: securely online or by phone
  • with a check or cash
  • with SOLR (Sustainer of Local Radio) membership ($5 / month minimum); call or email for more info.
How do I join?
You can join KGNU:

For your membership, you get to help support a very unique radio station for one year. Also, if you you would like, we'd be glad to give you a thank you gift (a premium). This also gives you an opportunity to see our studios when you come to pick-up your premium. As a thank you for becoming a member, we'd like to offer you:

  • T-Shirts! Caps! Tote bags!
  • Concert tickets! Books!
  • CDs of talks by KGNU favorite speakers or music compilations on CD!
These are typical premiums, though other premiums may be available at other times, and certain high value premiums may require a higher level membership.
The premium level depends on your membership level.
Please understand that we may be out of your requested premium, in which case we will offer you an equivalent one.
