Donate now to help KCRW secure $12,500

Written by Kim Ishikawa

Hi pals,

There’s something about the fall — the post-impressionist sunsets, that electric buzz that sets in as the days grow shorter — that signals us to get back to business. We just launched KCRW’s Fall Fundraiser and we need your support.

After 17 epic Summer Nights parties with iconic partners all across SoCal, we’re already planning for an exciting year to come. 

Become a monthly member to secure another year of the KCRW programming and parties you know and love. Not only that, but you’ll receive a special gift from our new “Wake Up and Smell the Flowers” collection, plus a whole year of member perks like exclusive events and partner presales and discounts.

Not able to donate monthly, but still want to show your support? Any donation makes you a member and makes a difference for KCRW. And when you give today, your donation will be doubled up to $12,500 by the KCRW Champion Fund,* thanks to Brooks and Julie McKinney, Julie Morris, and Lorena Gonda. $50 becomes $100, and $100 becomes $200, but only if you give by midnight.

But wait, there’s more! Everyone who donates by September 27th will be automatically entered to win our Iceland Airwaves Sweepstakes!** One winner and their guest will enjoy roundtrip airfare to Reykjavík, a three night hotel stay, entry to the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, and festival passes to see artists like Yard Act, Bombay Bicycle Club, Andy Shauf, trentemøller, Blondshell, DOMi & JD Beck, Daði Freyr, and more! 

Become a member today to ensure all your KCRW favorites are here to stay.

Thank you,
