Celebrate our community this #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday started as an international response to Black Friday, celebrating nonprofits and their positive work in their communities.

We're starting our Membership Drive on #GivingTuesday. The dates are November 29th through December 1st.

With your help, we will raise $25,000 in 3 days
This is a time to connect with the radio community that supports you and supports each other. You are a part of the effort that will revolutionize media to be more inclusive, more courageous, and more informative.

Join KBOO as a member, and please come by the station! And, if you have the time, please join us in our phone bank.

Someone will match your first-time membership.
If you aren't a member yet, now's the time to join KBOO. Your membership will be matched 1 to 1 by The Collins Foundation and SSI Shredding Systems. Your first contribution will go twice as far, but this offer will only last until the end of the year. Don't delay - join today!
