Listener Appreciation

   For the past several years, KPFK and Pacifica Foundations membership model has primarily been based on financial transactions with its donors. The overreliance with our on-air fund drive model has become more disconnected from our mission nor has it adapted to the changes in the non-profit and public broadcast industry.  Our ongoing model of fundraising is not sustainable. For much of the past decade, KPFK has relied on antiquated tools to engage with our donors, develop strategies, and adopt best practices. Utilizing new tools to engage with our listeners and donors, that include additional opportunities to assist KPFK beyond financial means, create diverse experiences that resonate with our listeners, and further provide a platform to create more awareness for community organizations that serve the public is a priority of ours.

   It would be impossible to strengthen our station without the support of listeners nor can the changes happen overnight. We ask that you stand with fellow listeners that care about independent public media and make a pledge now  or become a sustaining member so KPFK doesn't have to operate from fund drive to fund drive, providing KPFK an opportunity to grow and bring you the diverse content that we are known for.
