It’s Horizon Member Day & Applebee's Corporate Partner Day!

KCUR would like to thank Tuesday's corporate sponsor, Applebee's!

Today we turn the spotlight on KCUR’s Horizon Members. We celebrate their ongoing, long-term financial commitment to Kansas City’s public media and invite you to become a Horizon Member.

What is a KCUR Horizon Member?  These are members who make monthly contributions to KCUR through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) directly from their bank account, or for UMKC employees through payroll deduction.  It is the most convenient and cost efficient way to support Kansas City Public Media.

Horizon Membership benefits KCUR and you!  

A monthly gift of $5 or $10 may not seem significant, but these small monthly gifts add up in BIG way.  In fact, we have approximately 780 Horizon Members currently who contribute more than $12,000 each month to the station through EFT.  Annually our Horizon Members contribute 9-10 % of KCUR’s membership revenue.  This steady, dependable stream of income helps us project our cash flow and plan accordingly.  It also helps us reduce our costs for printing, mailing and fundraising administration.

For KCUR’s Horizon Members, membership never expires, so you always enjoy the benefits of membership.  Once the transfers are set up, it continues year to year, renewing automatically.  And by donating a little bit each month, your contribution is easier on your budget and you can plan for this donation each month.

And to our existing Horizon Members, thank you for helping to sustain KCUR now and in the future!
