Thanks to the incredible response from listeners during the Fall Membership Campaign, KALW now has nearly 12,500 active members.   As 77% of Local Public Radio’s budget comes directly from listeners, a growing base of individual supporters is critical to the station’s future.  

The commitment and generosity of KALW listeners has significantly improved the station's financial standing over the past two years.  At the end of  FY2012 on June 30th, KALW's cash reserves stood at $343,272, up more than $200,000 from a year earlier.
