Support KBOO Sponsors

KBOO is open to the public! To visit the station, contact your staff person or call 503-231-8032.

While we finish the online advertising program, why not consider supporting KBOO's sponsors?

Sponsors You Can Believe In

Don't forget that every day, progressive businesses and organizations support the KBOO programming you love through underwriting.  Our underwriters are lovers of KBOO just like you:  They support public access to public airwaves, the recruitment and training of community members from the most diverse backgrounds, and musical styles from all over the world.

Thank you, sponsors -- we are grateful for your vital support. Check out the complete list of KBOO Sponsors, with contact information and links

You can feel good about supporting those who support KBOO because we will never knowingly accept funds from individuals, organizations, or businesses which:

  • are involved in weapons manufacturing;
  • make investments in repressive governments (other than the United States);
  • have been shown to discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual preference, national origin, age, religion, marital status, or physical or mental disability;
  • have been shown to tolerate sexual harassment;
  • have been shown to use unfair labor practices;
  • have been shown to be environmentally irresponsible;
  • produce or distribute materials deemed offensive on the grounds listed above; or
  • KBOO’s Board of Directors determines would be detrimental to the social responsibilities of the station.
  • Additionally, KBOO shall not accept advertising from religious organizations or political candidates. 
  • Every underwriter agrees that Underwriter’s support of Station, regardless of level or duration, shall not give Underwriter any right to directly or indirectly influence program selection or content or Station policy on any matter. Any attempt by Underwriter to influence programming based on advertiser’s financial support shall be grounds for terminating underwriting agreement. 

Indeed, you can be proud that KBOO is famous throughout the nation for having some of the most very stringent guidelines regarding from whom it will accept donations, and I often consult with other stations about how they can be similarly discerning.  We are one of a special, and increasingly rare, breed of stations that continue to regularly decline underwriting contributions that are inconsistent with our values.
