FAQs

Why donate?

KWNK broadcasts thanks to the generous support of donors.

Noncommercial/Community radio can’t exist without the support of listeners and local businesses. Freeform community radio stations like ours champion diversity, and strive to give a platform to voices in our community.

How can I donate?

You can become a member for as little as $5 a month, or for a whole year with an annual donation of $60 dollars. You can become a member here.

How are the funds used?

Community radio is free-form and free to listen to, but definitely not free to run. Membership ensures that we have a reliable stream of income every month to cover our costs. Funds from membership go toward our FM transmitter ($3500), Antenna ($2000), Broadcast Interface ($3500), Tower Space ($4800), Music Licensing ($1000) and our operating costs and studio space.

What are the benefits?

First & foremost, you get to support Reno’s only community radio station! You’ll also get discounts from local businesses that support KWNK, so you can get a sweet deal while supporting businesses with the same values that you do. You’ll also get access to member exclusive events and giveaways, and our newsletter.

Is my pledge tax deductible?

Yes. Our station has 501(c)(3) status, which means the IRS classifies us as a charitable organization. Any donation made to KWNK is tax-deductible, less the amount of any goodies you receive in exchange for your pledge. The IRS does not require a receipt except for donations of $250 or more, in which case KWNK will mail you a receipt next January if you request it.

Discounted Rates

If you cannot currently afford a KWNK membership, drop us an email. There’s plenty of work to do around the station, and if you are willing to volunteer we would be happy to provide you with a membership.

Duration

If you make a one-time donation at or above $60, your membership will be current for 1 year with the option to renew. If you sign up with a recurring monthly donation, your membership will renew automatically each monthly without any interruption in payments.

Gift Memberships
