Join KGNU’s ‘Post-COVID’ 2021 Spring Fund Drive: Spring Forward with KGNU, March 6-14

Boulder, CO., March 1, 2021–KGNU’s Spring 2021 Membership Drive, is scheduled for Saturday, March 6 through Sunday, March 14, with an invitation to Spring Forward with KGNU!

The spring membership campaign is one of two major fundraising drives held by the station each year and contributes to the resources that will help keep you informed.

In the year since the COVID-19 pandemic overtook the United States, we’re seeing signs of hope, yet we still have a long way to go. KGNU continues to double down on coverage, serving as your eyes and ears so you’ll know how to keep yourself and your family safe as you navigate these uncertain times. At the same time, we have served as your musical companion with the very best eclectic music from all over the world. 

During the drive, our committed hosts and DJs will feature special programming including exclusive interviews with authors like Tim Wise and his new book Dispatches from the Race War, music specials like several International Women’s Day specials like Women in Folk music, a Frank Zappa Special, The Grateful Dead Rare Tapes Special, and so much more.

All of this is being curated by our hardworking staff and volunteers for your listening enjoyment while we raise critical operating funds to sustain this vital community resource.

Make a contribution to KGNU anytime now through March 14 at 2:00 p.m. MT and we will automatically enter you into a drawing to win a two-night stay at one of two YMCA of the Rockies locations – Estes Park Center or Snow Mountain Ranch. Your stay can be redeemed at any time through March 15, 2022.

Every day KGNU Community Radio informs, enlightens, and deepens understanding of the day’s most critical events. For more than 42 years, KGNU Community Radio has been a beacon of trusted news and informed conversations upon which thousands of people rely.

KGNU works 24/7 to connect communities on and off-air highlighting overlooked or under-represented voices in the community through our diverse music and news programs and radio training programs for youth and adults.

Seventy-percent of KGNU’s funding comes from individual donors. We are currently seeking donations and community partners to participate in the Fall Membership Drive. To get involved go to “give.kgnu.org” or call 303-449-4885.
