There are many ways to support non-profit, listener powered KEXP: making a gift of financial support, purchasing tickets to KEXP benefit events like the KEXP Summer BBQ, purchasing limited edition Live at KEXP compilation CDs, and by volunteering your time to KEXP.

The KEXP volunteer program has expanded from just a handful of volunteers in 2001 to over two hundred active volunteers today. Dedicated KEXP supporters volunteer over a thousand hours per month in all aspects of the station’s operations from answering pledge drive phones to assisting DJs. Volunteers and interns play a integral role in KEXP’s ability to bring you great music each and every day.

Not only do they help the station function, but they also save the station hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
