On Tuesday, December 3rd KOPN will join organizations across the globe to celebrate Giving Tuesday, an international day of giving.

As a listener-supported, volunteer-driven community radio station, we have always depended on the generosity of our community. KOPN simply wouldn’t be possible without the listeners and volunteers who donate their talent, time, and financial support to keep us going.

Next week, we’ll give you the opportunity to make your generosity go twice as far when you donate to KOPN’s Giving Tuesday Campaign.

On Tuesday, December 3rd, the first $2,500 donated to KOPN will be matched by anonymous donors! 

Donations made over the phone and online will count towards the match. You may donate by visiting us at kopn.org/donate, calling 573-874-5676, or the old fashioned way at 915 E Broadway.

And be sure to tune in from 3-5pm that afternoon for a special feature highlighting local organizations that are doing great work enriching our communities!

Since 2012, Giving Tuesday has offered an alternative to the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The idea is simple: instead of splurging on these consumerist holidays, we can take a step towards building a more just and generous world by encouraging giving and generosity. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue you care about, or supporting your local nonprofits, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
