1. How can I become a Member of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee?

You can become a Member of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee by completing our secure online donation page or by calling Cynthia at (414) 892-7928. You will receive an email confirmation within 24 hours of joining online. A formal acknowledgement letter will be sent within two weeks of contributing. Please note that it may take extra time for this process during our Fund Drives.

2. How much do I have to donate to become a Member of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee?

We’re all about inclusion rather than exclusion, which means your gift in any amount matters. However, we do have some pretty great thank you gifts and other benefits that come with higher levels of Membership. We believe our Members will give what they can because they believe in the mission of the station.

3. When can I expect to receive my thank you gifts?

If you give during a Fund Drive, please allow six to eight weeks for all of your gifts to arrive. We work with a dedicated team of volunteers to fill every thank you package as soon as possible. Outside of Fund Drives, we will get your acknowledgement letter and gifts to you within two weeks of contributing.

4. Is my contribution tax-deductible?

Yes, your donation to 88Nine is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

5. When will my Membership be up for renewal?

Your Membership is up for renewal 12 months from your initial contribution. We’ll send you a renewal notice before that.  If you are a Sustaining (monthly) Member, your contribution is automatically set to roll over after your 12 months are up. The sooner you respond to a renewal request, the more money it saves Radio Milwaukee, so please consider responding as soon as possible. If you have questions, please call Cynthia at(414) 892-7928 or email membership@radiomilwaukee.org.

6. Why did I receive a renewal reminder when I already sent in a contribution?

There are a couple of reasons why this could happen. Usually it’s because your gift and our renewal process have crossed in transport. If you are concerned please call(414) 892-7928 or email membership@radiomilwaukee.org.

7. What is a Sustaining Membership?

A Sustaining Membership is a convenient and easy ongoing monthly contribution to Radio Milwaukee. You tell us a designated amount you would like to contribute, and we securely and automatically charge that amount to your credit or debit card each month until you tell us to stop, or change it. Sustaining Memberships start at $5 a month ($60 a year).

8. How can I change or update my credit card information?

Simply call Cynthia at(414) 892-7928 or click here to securely update your credit card information. For your protection, please do not email your credit card number to us.

9. What happens if I miss a couple months of my monthly giving due to credit card issues?

After you update your credit card information with us, you can either pay the amount you missed during those months or simply pick up where you left off. Cynthia will work with you individually to make sure you are giving exactly what, and how, you want.

10. Will Radio Milwaukee give out my address, phone number or email address?

88Nine Radio Milwaukee is committed to ensuring your happiness and security during the donation process. As a result, we will not give, sell, or trade any of your information with anyone ever!
