One Gift Impacts the Whole Community

640 320

Your gift today will reach thousands of people – building community through creativity and empathy through stories. How does your donation power Radio Milwaukee?

Your gift powers our on-air broadcast, providing the time and equipment our programming staff use to research and produce segments about new music and local stories. Your gift supports and develops local artists, allowing us to prioritize them on air and offer programs for youth and adults. Your gift makes it possible for us to bring people together at fun and meaningful community events. Whatever piece of Radio Milwaukee you enjoy, your gift can make it happen! 


Gear is back for our last drive of 2020! We have a critically important fundraising goal to reach, so we’re offering different gear every day! Join at  $10+/mo (or  $120+ one-time) to get today’s gift: a Radio Milwaukee T-shirt designed by FOURTHECITY! Please note that gear will ship in January, and is available while supplies last. 

And if you donate by December 31, your gift can support Milwaukee’s artists and creatives directly! We’re partnering with Imagine MKE’s Artist Relief fund this holiday season. All donors can choose donate 10% of your gift to Imagine MKE, where it will be used to help local artists stay afloat and keep creating. With your help, we can make 2021 a little more musical. Please note that if you choose this option we will donate the cost of physical gear, so you will not receive Radio Milwaukee gear. You will still get all the members-only invites and insider info!
