Membership FAQs

KTOO is membership supported! Your financial contribution makes public radio possible, and we thank you for your support.

How do I fix a membership problem? Use our contact form or call Membership Services at 907-586-1670.  Let us know right away if we’ve made a mistake regarding your membership: a misspelled name, wrong address, duplicate mailing or billing error. It helps speed up the process if you send us the mailing label. If it’s a billing error, include a copy of your statement and an explanation of the problem. Or, call and give your name, address and membership number as it appears on your statement. We’ll take care of the problem as soon as we hear from you!

Do you sell your membership list? Please be assured that we never sell or exchange our mailing list.

How do I get my thank you gift? The membership office will mail thank you gifts, or you can come to the station to pick it up. Please note: you must pay half of your pledge before any gift will be mailed! Occasionally we will run out of a particular item. In most cases we will re-order it, but this does cause a delay. Sometimes, a re-order is not possible, so we will contact you to see if a substitute gift can be arranged.

Can I purchase a thank you gift? Please remember that the gift is just one of the ways we thank you for your support. Programs are what your dollars really buy. It is our policy not to sell current gifts because such sales decrease the value of the gifts to our members. For more information, give us a call!

Is my gift tax deductible? If you itemize on your federal tax returns, your membership pledge or other donation to KTOO is tax deductible to the full extent of the tax code. IRS regulations now require that we acknowledge, in writing, most gifts to us, and that we send you a statement which shows your donation minus the fair market value of any gifts we send you. In most cases, this is far more than we actually pay for the gift, but the regulations require that we calculate the “fair market” value. We send this information directly to you — we are not required to report contributions to the IRS.

Who can be a member? Voting members of CCBI must be at least 16 years of age; have paid membership dues, and receive our one or more of our signals. You must be a voting member for 90 days prior to a membership meeting in order to vote at that meeting. Each member is entitled to one vote. No voting by proxy is permitted at membership meetings. However, proxies may be used to establish a quorum.

What’s the minimum gift to be a member? Dues are part of your membership payment. Minimum dues which establish membership are $15 per year or $10 per year for students and seniors.
