The Future of jazz on public radio in Pittsburgh is in your hands.

We are in the midst of a resurgence of creativity and community that jazz and people can support, together. WZUM is a key part of sharing the sounds and the story of this renaissance. To keep WZUM going, we face an important goal between now and June 30th - $50,000 in listener support.

The urgency in supporting this music and this public radio jazz service is real - with the changes in media and culture, this is not a spark of hope and growth to take for granted.  YOU have a chance, right now, to be a part of something remarkable. Please make a new, renewing or additional gift, today.

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!
