Fundraising ideas for schools, churches, and youth sports teams

It took a lot of heart for ordinary folks to fashion a radio station by the people and for the people out of commitment and nothing in the early 2000’s.

KPOV remains a radio station guided by the hearts of real people here in Central Oregon. You can visit our Bend studio to see the work of over 100 dedicated local volunteers.

It’s authentic, homegrown radio that depends on people just like you, people who are the true beating heart of KPOV.
