I’m a member and need to report a change of address. Can I request the change by email?

Certainly. Simply email us at memberships@kcpw.org with your name, old address, new address and your telephone number.

Are my contributions to Wasatch Public Media tax deductible?

Yes. Effective September 12, 2007, Wasatch Public Media, dba KCPW, is a Utah non-profit corporation and qualified as a public charity pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as amended.

Per IRS requirements, contributions to KCPW are tax deductible to the extent that tangible personal benefits are not received in return. If you received thank you gifts and you contributed a total of $75 or greater during the calendar year, KCPW may be required to notify you of the estimated amount of your gift that remains eligible for tax deduction.

Contributions for which no thank you gift was requested or received are fully deductible for tax purposes.

When does my membership expire?

For first-time members, KCPW membership expires one year from the date your membership record is created. For renewing members, your membership expires one year from the date your record is updated.

Why does KCPW have membership drives?

KCPW relies on support from members in order to accomplish our mission. Our membership drives replenish our membership ranks, replacing those who have moved, passed away, or are no longer able to support us. This is one of the most effective methods we have of raising funds to continue providing you with the programs that meets your needs.

Membership contributions are KCPW’s most important source of support, because these donations account for more than 80% of KCPW’s annual operating costs.

I made a pledge, sent in my donation, but I haven’t received my thank you gift yet. What happened?

For most thank you gifts you should allow at least six weeks after your donation is received by KCPW. If eight weeks have passed and your gift has not yet arrived, please call us or email memberships@kcpw.org.

I made a contribution to KCPW, and did not request a thank you gift. Will you automatically send me a gift?

No. If you did not request a thank you gift, KCPW applies your entire contribution to help make the programs possible. We then make the thank-you gift you declined available for listeners who might not give otherwise.

What phone number can I call to make a contribution or pledge?

Our number is (801) 359-5279.

I’d like to volunteer at KCPW. Who can I call to inquire about the volunteer opportunities at KCPW?

Throughout the year volunteers help KCPW in many ways. Your experience, skills, knowledge and time are valuable to us. There are a variety of talents we seek and appreciate in a number of station operations – production, public relations, special events, fundraising, administrative and membership support to name a few.

During our membership drives our phone banks are staffed with community-minded individuals who help us meet our goals and thank new and returning KCPW members. It’s a chance to meet and work with friends and neighbors who all believe in public radio programs broadcast by KCPW. If you would like to be a volunteer for KCPW, call us or email volunteer@kcpw.org.
