Ways To Support

Sustaining Membership

As listener-supported public radio, Jazz 93.5 FM relies on a steady stream of financial support from the very people who love it—so we’re asking for your help to provide that stream by becoming a monthly Sustainer.

Sustaining Membership automatically renews — which means you pick an amount to give each month—$10, $20 or more–keeping your support current month after month, year after year.  It’s the easiest way to manage your support of Jazz 93.5 FM.

KCME sustaining donations can also be made by electronic funds transfers (EFT). EFT is the best way for both the station and for you. We don’t have to pay credit card fees and you don’t have to worry about expiring credit cards. Please give us a call at 719.578.5263 at your earliest convenience to update your information.

Single Gift

When you give to Jazz 93.5 FM, you join a community of supporters who ensure that jazz music is accessible to everyone here in our region. You support worthwhile radio. You support a service that’s integral to our community’s thriving cultural scene.

No matter the size of your gift, you make a difference. Join, renew, or make a special additional gift!

An investment in Jazz 93.5 as a Major Donor with a very special gift of $1,200 or more means you have the resources and the passion to help build a solid foundation of classical music for our community but also for the next generation.
