Ways to Support WWNO

Become a Member now - Individual listeners are WWNO’s largest single source of funding, accounting for more than a third of our annual budget.

Become a Sustaining Member now  – Ongoing monthly donations through secure, automatic charges to your credit card.  No renewal reminders! Less mail!

Underwriting and Program Sponsorships – Public radio’s approach to “advertising.”

Volunteer – Support WWNO with your time, energy and talent.

Corporate Matching Gifts – Many companies have programs that will match your investment in organizations like WWNO. Some companies will even double your investment!

Honor or Memorialize a Friend or Family Member - You can donate a tax-deductible gift to WWNO in memory of, or in honor of, a loved one, friend or colleague.

Donate Your Vehicle – Donate your used car, truck, motor home or boat to WWNO through the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program. You receive a tax deduction, and WWNO receives the net proceeds from the sale of your vehicle.

Support Through Your Will - A bequest is a gift, made through your will, that recipients receive after your death, and is one the simplest ways for people to make a substantial, lasting gift to support WWNO in the future.

Name WWNO as a Beneficiary - If you have a life insurance policy, you have named a beneficiary—usually a family member who will receive a payment based on the life insurance policy after your death. Charities, including WWNO, may also be named as beneficiaries!

Donate Stock - A gift of appreciated securities, either publicly traded or from a private company, may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash.
