Support WAMU Without Making A Donation

We can never thank you enough for the financial support that makes our work possible. But if you really love what we do then you can do it too! Making WAMU a part of your life can be more rewarding than you ever thought - here's how:

  1. Listen without your radio. Attend a Community Dialogue at the station or come out to Kojo in Your Community with your family and friends.
  2. Get personal. Volunteer for one of our membership campaigns, community outreach events, on-site productions, or around the station and get to know us personally.
  3. Talk to us. Send us an e-mail to feedback@wamu.org when you hear something you don't like and, of course, especially when you hear something wonderful!
  4. Keep us in mind. Refer a business associate, a friend, a client, or a peer to WAMU for individual membership, program underwriting, or event and special program sponsorship.
  5. Exercise your rights. Contact your elected officials to voice your concern about the occasional crises and the sometimes uncertain future of public radio funding.
  6. Sing our praises. Or, actually, write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper when you want to say "thanks to WAMU." If it prints, send us a copy.
  7. Pass it on. Tell people about us. If you value our service others may as well. Pass this copy of our eNewsletter, Inside WAMU, along to someone else who enjoys the station.
  8. Stay tuned in. Keep your radio on 88.5 FM as much as you can. The more listeners, the better we are - you can even listen online while at work.
  9. Keep us informed. If there's an important event in your community - notify our Public Service Director by mail. Mark your envelope "PSA Enclosed," and mail it to WAMU, 4401 Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20008.
  10. Show your pride. Wear your WAMU apparel, use your WAMU MemberCard frequently, fill up your WAMU mug in the office, and display your WAMU car sunshade during the summer months.
