At the top of each hour we say: "KFMG is a 'listener-supported’ service of The Des Moines Community Radio Foundation." That means that a significant portion of our income comes from people just like you. People who listen to KFMG and love what we do. People who don’t want us to go away again. It’s especially important this year, as it appears that, after crying “wolf” for years, finally, we’ll be moving from our home at the Hotel Fort Des Moines to new studios and offices at Mainframe Studios, 900 Keo, in the next couple of months. That’s the good news. The BAD news is that the bids for construction of the new studios and offices came in more than twice as much as our budget. That means we have to DOUBLE the average amount raised during this year’s Fun(d) Drive. Please consider helping KFMG to continue as "Your Community Voice" by providing financial assistance. You can easily do so by making a contribution by calling KFMG at 515-244-4145 or 244-4146, or by mailing a check or money order directly to KFMG at:
PO Box 41143
Des Moines, IA 50311
We DO have premium items available for donors; and we have some VERY interesting items to pass along to you to encourage you to donate AND to show our appreciation for your donation in a tangible manner. It really is an impressive list of stuff, and an equally impressive group of persons and entities donated all that stuff so that we can reward you for your support of KFMG-LP, 98.9 FM.
If you make a donation by mail, and you wish a premium, please indicate several options (as many of the premiums are in limited supply or are one-of-a-kind), and we’ll let you know what is available. Please send us a separate email if you contribute through Red Truck, and wish to have a premium item.
Thank you very much for your support.
Here is the amazing list of Premiums to choose from with a donation to KFMG:
