Nonprofit partnerships

KUOW is proud to provide over 80 nonprofit organizations with in-kind support for events taking place in our broadcast region. Selected events reflect KUOW's mission and expose listeners to a variety of cultural, artistic, civic and community experiences that entertain, promote discourse and increase participation in our community. Awarded events are selected through a competitive application process and must meet the guidelines in the PDF below.


Awards consist of in-kind on-air messages and are granted to annual festivals, single museum or art exhibitions and other events. KUOW does not sponsor fundraising or advocacy events. Events within a series/season must be submitted as single events for consideration. Questions please email
