Support public radio and non-profit journalism during KOSU's year-end fundraiser

KOSU is offering several thank you gifts this membership drive — the KOSU long sleeve shirt, the KOSU water bottle + throwback stickers, the Keep It Local OK discount card and subscriptions to Babbel and the New York Times!

Did you know that one-third of annual giving happens in December? Last year, Americans gave over $410 billion dollars to charities in the month of December alone.

KOSU exists in two worlds. It is a newsroom and a non-profit. And that means we rely on funds from individual donation, grants, state and federal dollars to pay for everything from staff salaries, to internet connection, to gas for travel, to batteries for microphones. Your donation pays for all of KOSU.

So during this season of giving, we invite you to join thousands of other listeners across the region and set up a monthly sustaining membership to the non-profit newsroom that you have relied on this past year. A sustaining membership is the best way to support KOSU. It provides a steady stream of funds for the station and it is economical for you.

We invite you to invest in the news source that's provided critical updates on the COVID pandemic, expert analysis on the economy, local stories on your community, plus so much more over the past year. Become a member of KOSU today!

Make a commitment to your #1 news source and become a member of KOSU today!

The best way you can support KOSU is by becoming a sustaining member of the station. That is when you pledge a certain amount, but pay it out in monthly installments. It's economical for you and provides a steady stream of revenue for the station. Here are some suggested monthly giving levels, and we have many thank you gifts as incentives to join today.

Get the 2022 Keep It Local card

Good for discounts all over the state of Oklahoma. Keep It Local OK cards help you discover the best spots in town by rewarding you with discounts and incentives at locally-owned businesses located in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Edmond, Norman, Guthrie, Moore, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Midwest City, Yukon, Stillwater, and across the state of Oklahoma. 2022 cards will be mailed out in late November.
Get a 1-year subscription to Babbel

Babbel is a language learning app that allows you to learn a new language at your own pace. You can choose from 14 different languages to learn, and the subscription is good for one year. Babbel is the shortest path to real-life conversations; 73% of users indicated that they’d be able to have a short, simple conversation in their new language within five hours of using Babbel.
