Have fun volunteering for the Spring Membership Drive, and help KBOO too!
Have you been curious about how KBOO works? Do you have a little time to spend with us? If you want to check things out from the other side of your radio speakers, this is your time! KBOO's Spring Membership Drive begins Thursday, April 28th and runs through Saturday, May 14th, and we could really use your help!
KBOO’s existence depends on successful membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners--this is, in part, what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique. We ask that all volunteers at KBOO help with the drive, as we have more than 600 shifts to fill! With shifts available seven days a week, generally spanning the hours of 6 AM to 11 PM, there are shifts to fit anyone’s schedule!
The drive is very high energy, and volunteers work very closely together in teams to raise money for the station— it can be really fun to schedule a shift during a time that you listen, you can meet the volunteers that you hear on the radio and talk with others that share your interests. If you haven’t volunteered before, try answering phones & assisting our listeners to become members—it’s a great way to jump on in. There are other opportunities related to the drive, so contact me for more information.
Whether you are a brand new volunteer, or a seasoned pro, KBOO relies on your participation to keep us connected to the grass roots, and your help is very much appreciated.
