WBAI Needs Your Help!

WBAI is radio for the 99%! Unlike commercial radio, we have no rich corporations as sponsors, no deep well of corporate support to keep us on the air.

What we have is better - you, the listeners and members of WBAI!

You are our primary sponsors. You provide the bulk of the funding to keep the signal on the air, bringing you the unique content that's not found anywhere else on the radio dial. We can't do it without you.

Check the icons below to explore the wealth of different options we offer for you to support WBAI. Pick the one that suits you best - you can donate and receive a premium of your choice, make a recurring donation, or give in the name of your favorite show. Whatever you decide, donate today and help keep this honored and beloved institution on the air!

And remember, anyone who donates $25 (or more) to WBAI becomes a member, eligible to stand for, and vote for the Local Station Board, which helps determine the future direction of WBAI!
