The Price for KPFK

    The past few weeks have been eventful with the historic Impeachment trails, a rise in unsheltered Angelenos, the loss of Lila Garrett, and elections season is ramping up with the Iowa caucuses that KPFK and Pacifica covered. We know that you rely on KPFK and Pacifica for your source of analysis-focused coverage rather than concentrating on breaking news.

    Today we kick off our On-Air fundraising campaign. They are necessary to fund our operation. On average, it costs $225,910 a month to fund our operations. 107 programs heard on KPFK weekly rely on station resources to produce the content you appreciate and we rely on listeners like you, so we won't have to rely on special interest groups. Will you stand with us and support KPFK, LA's historic community media outlet?

    "Listening to KPFA and KPFK significantly improved and broadened my life.  My programming philosophy is simply to pass on the wisdom and intelligence of great people to current listeners. The overwhelming majority of radio is dedicated to hatred, manipulation, and lies. We are part of a few in search of truth and peace. Eleanor Roosevelt stated that 'it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness' so we work to keep the flame alive." - Roy of Hollywood


    We appreciate our members who consistently support KPFK, your continued support makes KPFK possible. I'm asking you to elect not to get a premium this time around so that your contribution is maximized. There are additional costs associated with premiums and thank you gifts that KPFK has traditionally paid for out of the funds we raise.

    KPFK can not survive unless listeners like you actively and consistently support KPFK. 

    Whether you contribute because of the diverse music you hear on KPFK, for the intelligent perspectives, or progressive content. Your support will ensure that KPFK can continue to make the improvements necessary to serve in a greater capacity in the coming year. Be a part of this vital service by contributing now at any level.

    Make a contribution now and help secure KPFK's immediate future

    Thank you for your support,
