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).
An annual KGNU membership starts at $5/month or $60/year, but we appreciate any donation.
Many KGNU supporters want to do more. Call us at 303 449-4885 or contact our membership department about a challenge grant to encourage others to donate 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.
  • Access to membership data is restricted.

Payment options

  • Monthly SOLR (Sustainer of Local Radio) membership starting at $5 / month by checking account or credit card; call or email for more information about recurring memberships.
  • Credit or debit card: online or by phone
  • Check or Cash

  • CDs of talks by KGNU favorite speakers or music compilations!
These are typical thank you gifts - others may be available and certain items may require higher membership levels.
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.
