Day Sponsorships

With a contribution of $365, you can create a personal message that will be aired 8 times on a day of your choice. Day sponsorships are a great way to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, honor a friend or local community member, or donate your message for use by your favorite nonprofit - all while supporting KNAU and the outstanding public radio programming you enjoy!

Your announcement can be 40-45 words in length, (about 20 seconds long), and will be read by a KNAU host eight times, every other hour, beginning at 6:30 am a day of your choosing.  Your contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. 

Day sponsorships have become very popular and our calendar fills up fast.  Make your gift and reserve your date as far in advance as possible, or four weeks minimum, for best availability.

** PLEASE NOTE:  Day Sponsorships can not be used to promote for-profit businesses, political campaigns, year-end giving or special giving days. **

**The donor/purchaser must be credited as the Day Sponsor.**

**Date of sponsorship must be selected within one year of purchase.**

For more information email KNAU or make your online contribution today!
