Member Clubs - WKAR Sound Vision Society

The WKAR Sound Vision Society is for individual and corporate donors to make a larger investment in the future of WKAR Radio and Television. This giving society is designed to make WKAR richer, not ultimately in dollars, but in essential resources that only dollars can provide.

MEMBERSHIP ELIGIBILITY in the Sound Vision Society is open to individuals, foundations and corporate donors who contribute a minimum of $1,000 annually to WKAR-AM/FM/TV. Gifts to WKAR Radio, TV and Radio Talking Book may also be combined to achieve the annual $1,000 gift level minimum necessary.

Your gift does something no other charitable contribution can do -- it not only speaks for you and your values, but it also speaks to the entire community.

Your gift touches every curious child, every grateful homebound senior citizen, every dedicated teacher, every public decision-maker, and every family like yours with a desire for personal enrichment and growth.

WKAR must rely on the support of those viewers and listeners who share its sound vision for innovation and excellence.

Funds raised through the Sound Vision Society will expand the possibilities of what is already an exciting and flourishing environment for educational and cultural programming in Michigan.
