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? No. 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? Some items may be available for purchase. Please use our contact form or call Membership Services at (907)586-1670 to find out the most current availability.
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.
Do I get anything more for my sustaining membership?

What does it mean to be a sustaining member?
Becoming a sustainer means your monthly or yearly pledge will automatically roll over every 12 months. If you pay by credit card, your card will automatically be charged and your membership will automatically renew.
Can I be a sustainer if I only donate once annually or does this option only apply to monthly pledges?
You may select monthly or the option of automatically renewing a once-per-year pledge. Please remember that when you auto-renew a once-per-year pledge using your credit card, your card will automatically be charged every 12 months.
What if I want to increase my contribution?
You are welcome to change your contribution amount or frequency at any time, simply give us a call! You are also welcome to make an additional gift at any time. The same procedures apply if your financial circumstances change and you need to reduce your gift.
What if my credit card expires or changes?
If your credit card expires or changes please call the Membership Department at 907-586-1670 or update your information here.
Is my contribution still tax-deductible?
Yes! You will receive an annual thank you letter on the anniversary of your initial gift to use for tax purposes.
Will I still receive a thank you gift?
Absolutely! When you set up your pledge to automatically renew, you are still eligible for thank you gifts. When you hear of a gift you would like during our on-air pledge drives, please call the Membership Department at 907-586-1670. You are eligible to receive thank-you gifts offered at a pledge level equal to your total donations for your membership year. (e.g. If you pledge $10 monthly, you are eligible for a thank you gift offered at the $120 pledge level.)
How do I stop my auto payments?
To stop your sustaining membership, simply call our membership office at 907-586-1670, or send us your request in writing. You DO NOT need to notify your bank or credit card company.
