The start of a beautiful relationship with WZUM and you

The Future of jazz on public radio in Pittsburgh is now in your hands. Before the end of 2018, we will need to raise another $50,000 for operating costs. With our core audience and thousands of new listeners, we know this can be a success!

Please make a new, renewing or additional gift, today. With your help, we are becoming a vital voice for a growing community of people who share your passion and care for this music and the people who create it.

We have a wonderful group of music thank-you gifts, all with a Pittsburgh connection, here!

Your gift by credit card or check will be a big help. Contribute online through the “Donate Now” button

or send a check to: WZUM; PO Box 456; South Park, PA, 15129

A membership in WZUM can fit into just about anyone’s budget. One of the easiest ways is to make a RECURRING Gift of a monthly, recurring, amount that can be automatically deducted from your credit or debit card. There’s an option for monthly, recurring, sustaining gifts on the website, or just inform our operator you’d like to make a sustaining gift.  

Your monthly, recurring gift of $10, $20, $50 or more can build up to a great ongoing foundation for supporting the Pittsburgh Jazz Channel. The annual total gift also qualifies you for any thank-you gifts that your donation would entitle you to, too!

Make a Challenge

We also suggest a “Challenge” gift, one which can be either a conditional gift or an additional gift, based on matching a fundraising goal met by others. Challenges by ongoing supporters like you can generate more financial support by helping prompt other, first-time contributors to follow year lead and support WZUM. Put a note in the comments section of your pledge, or send an email to to help make a magic public radio jazz moment!
