Nonprofit partnerships

KUOW is proud to provide over 80 nonprofit organizations with in-kind support for events taking place in our broadcast region.

Selected events reflect KUOW's mission and expose listeners to a variety of cultural, artistic, civic, and community experiences that entertain, promote discourse, and increase participation in our community. Awarded events are selected through a competitive application process and must meet the Nonprofit Partnership Guidelines (PDF)
