Become a Member

WRKF members help make your favorite programs possible. In fact, membership combined with local business sponsorship makes up about 88% of WRKF's operating budget. To become a member, simply donate the amount that works best for you on either an annual or monthly basis.  


Becoming a Sustaining Member is a way to put more of your dollars into independent news and cultural programming on WRKF. As a Sustaining Member, you will help to…

  • Save thousands of dollars in postage, paper and administrative costs.
  • Invest more of your contribution into the programs you value.
  • Help keep the number of days of on air drives to a minimum.

It's convenient. Your contribution is deducted automatically from the account of your choice (until you tell us to stop) which means no reminders from us. So, we spend less of your contribution on postage and paper. Plus, all the benefits that come with being a member remain yours to enjoy including access to special events and offers.

It's powerful. By eliminating administrative expenses, more of your contribution goes into the programming. Plus, when enough members become Sustainers, we'll be able to create shorter on-air drives. Imagine how good you will feel about that.

It's enduring. Spreading your support over time is easier on your budget. Plus it gives WRKF the security of a steady, reliable stream of program support. You'll feel good knowing that you're continuing to support WRKF's vital service to our community.

Sustaining Member Benefits:

  • Guaranteed uninterrupted WRKF Member status;
  • Satisfaction of providing continuous support for independent news, vibrant music and innovative content and streaming;
  • Environmentally friendly because it decreases paper use;
  • Opportunity to request a special members-only thank you gift;
