I’m a member and need to report a change of address/name change. 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 its 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 meet your needs.

Membership contributions are KCPW’s most important source of support, accounting for the majority of KCPW’s annual operating costs and creating in the process this fiercely independent public radio station we all know and love.

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 three weeks after your donation is received by KCPW. If six 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?

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 am a sustaining member, how do I adjust my giving level?

If you would like to adjust your giving level, you can email members@kcpw.org, call our membership department at (801) 359-5279 ext. 211, or use the donate page to enter a new sustaining donation. Please note in the comments field that this is to replace your existing sustaining pledge, and our membership department will email you to confirm the change has been made.

I entered an incorrect amount when I made my donation, now what?

If you have made an error in making your donation, we will honor your request for a refund made within 15 days of your donation. To request a refund, email members@kcpw.org. Refunds are returned using the original method of payment. If you made your donation by credit card, your refund will be credited to that same credit card

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

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, email volunteer@kcpw.org or click here for additional information.
