The Summit Club recognizes individuals who give $480 or more annually to the KTOO stations (KRNN, KTOO News, and KXLL) The KTOO Board of Directors developed the club in 2009 as a way to say “thank you” to the folks in our community who are major supporters of the stations. Since then, membership in the Summit Club has grown from fewer than 100 donors to almost 300. Summit Club membership offers exclusive benefits and privileges including invitations to special events and receptions, insider information updates and more. To join the Summit Club, click here!
Base Camp celebrates those who form the foundation of all major giving by contributing $480-$999 annually. For those who are ready to move up from Base Camp, the Ascent Team welcomes and congratulates those who contribute $1,000 – $4,999. And for those who have achieved a truly special level of giving, the Peak level recognizes contributions of $5,000 and above.
Summit Club members provide financial support for the stations that is both significant and powerful. The Summit Club is as diverse as our listeners and viewers. The tie that binds Summit Club members is an appreciation and commitment to the stations and the desire to sustain the valuable service KTOO provides our community.
