Why should I give to KMSU?

A tax-deductible donation* to KMSU radio provides your community with a voice that would not otherwise exist. This voice is an alternative perspective on local, state and national issues. It's music you can't hear elsewhere. It's vital health and welfare information delivered to the Latino community. It's the opportunity for a university student to have a meaningful experience in a dynamic media environment. It's the vibrant voices of 50 community volunteers sharing their passion for meaningful programming.

* Please consult your tax advisor regarding tax-deductibility.

Doesn't the University support KMSU Radio?

Yes it does, but the University rightfully expects KMSU to derive support from its listener-members. We hope you feel that KMSU is worthy of your support.

What has the station done to improve listener support?

There are a number of technical improvements we've made to the station, but the most significant improvement has been the addition of a number of new community volunteer program hosts. The richness and variety of programming has never been this rewarding for listeners. We will continue to develop new programming opportunities to give listeners more to choose from. 

If I own or manage a business, can I advertise on KMSU?

Advertising is prohibited on any public radio station. However, if you wish to make a tax-deductible contribution to KMSU, we can air what are called "underwriting credits" on your behalf. These announcements identify your business, the products or services you provide, your location, and reference items like your phone number or web site address to allow listeners to obtain more details. While these announcements don't build traffic like commercial radio, they do create an affinity with our listeners.Contact Jim Gullickson, Station Manager, for more information (507) 389-5678, or (800) 456-7810. Or e-mail.

Can I make a charitable bequest to KMSU?

Absolutely. There are several ways to make a charitable bequest to KMSU through your will or trust. To make sure all legal requirements are met, it is important that you have an attorney draft or revise your will or trust. Charitable bequests are fully deductible in your estate since the IRS recognizes KMSU as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. If you would like to name KMSU in your will, please consult with your attorney, and contact Jim Gullickson, Station Manager, at (507) 389-5678, or 1-800-456-7810.
