Membership FAQ

What is a Sustaining Membership?

The easiest way to support KUNC is with a Sustaining Membership. As a Sustaining Member, you designate a monthly amount ($10/month minimum) to be transferred from your checking, savings, debit card, or credit card account. Your Sustaining Membership provides ongoing support and can be changed at anytime. Click here to join the family of KUNC Sustaining Members.

Oops! I made a mistake and need to request a refund for my donation.

If you have made an error in making your donation or change your mind about contributing to KUNC, we will honor your request for a refund made within 30 days of the original donation. Refunds are returned using the original method of payment. If you made your donation by credit card, your refund will be credited to that same credit card. Please contact us at or call us at 800-443-5862.

I heard about a sweepstakes, how do I enter?

Periodically, KUNC may announce a sweepstakes for various prizes.  You don't have to donate to be entered, but if you choose to give to KUNC during the stated time period we will enter you into the sweepstakes as well. If you are a current sustaining member, you can sit back and relax because you are automatically entered into the sweepstakes.  To enter the sweepstakes without giving a gift, just give us a call at 1-800-443-5862 during the sweepstakes period or email and we will add your name to the drawing. It really is that easy!  Take a look at our Complete Sweepstakes Rules if you want to know more.  Good luck!
