Member Generosity Helps KSUT Meet Fund Drive Goals

Mar 20, 2019

Blues musician Kirk James was one of several local artists to perform and pitch during the KSUT Spring Membership Drive.

Thanks to hundreds of KSUT listeners and members, our spring fund drive was a great success!  We reached our goal of a total of 1,200 sustaining members, and we nearly doubled the challenge match of $3,750 from the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado.
 
We’re close, but still short of our $60,000 overall goal for the drive, and you could help put us over the top. Pledge now here, or return your membership mailer.
 
Today, KSUT is stronger and more resilient due to the very generous and loyal support of thousands of listener-members from the Four Corners region and around the world.
