Why Your Contribution Matters.
When you contribute to KSER, you make a difference in your community.
KSER plays a vital role in our community, educating the public on important issues and connecting you to the wider community.
KSER shines a light on the work of numerous other service, educational, governmental and arts organizations that enhance the quality of life in here in the Snohomish, Island, Jefferson, and North King Counties.
When you support KSER, you amplify the reach and impact of other people making a difference in our community.
The music you hear on KSER is unlike any found elsewhere on the dial. It's free of commercials and inspired by a passion for the unique, the exceptional. And KSER connects you to the local music scene and local artists not often heard elsewhere on the dial.
When you support KSER, you support arts, entertainment, musicians and culture in your own community.
KSER is listener-supported, independent public radio. We are a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, and rely on individual listener contributions for over 50% of our income.
With YOUR support, the service that makes a difference in your life, and in our community, grows and thrives.
There are a number of ways to contribute: donating money, services, and your time.
Every contribution makes a difference!

Contribute to our Challenge Fund
The KSER Challenge Fund has a profound impact on our ability to raise money during our membership drives. Your donation demonstrates your commitment to the community and motivates others to step up to the plate.
During our on-air drive, listeners are offered a challenge: meet a particular goal within a particular time frame, and our challenge fund donor (you) match all contributions up to a specific amount (set by you).
Your gift provides an incentive for many new listeners to join you in supporting KSER.
A Challenge Fund donor is a leader in rallying community support for KSER's valuable public service.
Donations to the Challenge Fund are tax-deductable and may be made in one payment, or on an installment plan. Contact our Development Director, Shayne Kraemer, for more information.
