Give KPOV a Shot in the Arm, Get a Silishot glass!

Donate to KPOV Before July 30 and get a cool KPOV Silishot glass as a reward.

As a listener-supported, volunteer-powered community radio station, KPOV depends on the generosity of people like you to keep our great programming and service to our community going.  We are grateful to everyone who donates during our Spring and Fall pledge drives.  And we could use a little boost over the Summer.
