The KBOO Fall Membership Drive is here!
Our total goal for this drive is $95,000. We're looking to raise that amount by September 18th. Thanks to everyone who donated early! We raised $15,000 before the drive, so we're able to eliminate one day of interrupted programming.
  • Donate to KBOO by dialing 877-500-KBOO (5266) between 6am - 10pm or going online at
  • Help during the drive! We're always looking for help with answering phones. Would you like to volunteer during the drive? Sign up for a shift or two here.
  • Tap into your network to get the word out and tell your friends to support our community radio station. Use #supportKBOO on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and join our Facebook Drive event.
We have some great specials for you from September 9th - 19th!
We love doing these specials. We rely on your support to remain a vibrant independent source for news, music, community information, & arts reporting.
