Membership Information

Membership from listeners is our largest and most important source of income. Donations from individuals (memberships) account for approximately 60 percent of KGOU's cash income.

Your membership dollars make it possible for KGOU to purchase national programs like Morning Edition, All Things Considered and This American Life, to produce local shows and online news content, and to maintain the delivery systems -- broadcast and online -- that bring it all to you. If you share in the experience of public radio, please share in the responsibility as well.

  • Donations are accepted in any amount, in one-time payments or installments. For donations at certain levels, a small thank-you gift may be available.
  • Donations may be made by credit card or check.
  • KGOU accepts donations of automobiles.
  • KGOU also accepts donations of publicly traded stock, appreciated real estate and bequests. (Contact Jolly Brown, Development Director)
  • Employees of the University of Oklahoma may donate through payroll deduction with the OU Campus Campaign.
Sustaining Membership
Donors may choose to give monthly by credit or debit card, until the expiration date of their card. When filling out our online card payment form, set the end date to the expiration date of your card.
To become a sustaining member while paying by check, please explore automatic bill payment options with your financial institution. We regret that we are not able to set up electronic fund transfers at this time.
Leadership Giving

KGOU also offers two major giving levels for philanthropic gifts to support operations:

  • Director's Society for gifts of $500 to $999
  • Leadership Circle for gifts of $1000 and above

Leadership Circle and Director's Society members receive invitations to special KGOU events and quarterly updates from the KGOU General Manager. For more information about the benefits of leadership giving to KGOU, contact Jolly Brown, Development Director by e-mail or by calling 325-1601.
