Volunteer At Montana Public Radio

We are inviting volunteers to help out at the station this spring for our annual Spring Pledge Drive, April 15 - 22.

Join our staff and hosts in the studio to help answer pledge calls. Volunteer opportunities for the pledge drive are in Missoula. 

Sign up online today by clicking here!

Volunteer Opportunities we offer throughout the year:

Fold and Organize our Station Tees
Not a hard job at all, and is a HUGE help to us. Come help fold the hundreds of beautiful spring t-shirts before the drive so they are ready to pop in the mail right after the drive ends. You'll love using our nifty t-shirt folder!

Take Pledge Calls
Join us in the phone room to take pledge calls from Montana Public Radio listeners phoning in their pledge of support. When you volunteer this way, you will have the opportunity to see our on air hosts in action. We ask new phone room volunteers to please attend a one hour training session offered prior to our pledge drives.  Our on air pledge drives occur in October and March/April every year.

Watch: how to take a pledge call
Learn how to take a call and enter the caller's pledge into our live database. If it's your first time volunteering to answer phones, we highly recommend that you attend one of these in-person 1-hour (or less) training sessions. Several sessions are held in the KUFM studio, PARTV Building (Performing Arts & Radio/TV Center), the University of Montana campus, Missoula before the pledge drive. Reserve your spot on our online sign up calendar. Previous phone volunteers can get a refresher by watching this video.

Package Thank You Gifts
Spend a few hours in our fundraising office packing t-shirts, grocery bags, CDs, books, and many other wonderful items that were pledged for during the drive and getting them ready to mail.   

Poster Distribution
KUFM always needs help promoting our drives. Many businesses and community establishments are willing to hang our posters for a time before our pledge drives and we are always looking for volunteers willing to get them there. This can often be worked into your day as you stop in to the grocery store you frequent, or the library, or while on the University of Montana campus. If you happen to travel outside of Missoula, and still within our listening area, take some posters with you! There are many businesses around the state that support Montana Public Radio. Please call 243-4988 if you're interested in helping put up posters in your listening area!

If you've never volunteered before and would like to be contacted when future opportunities come up, please follow the link to our volunteer form and provide us with your contact information.

Thank you for donating your time to Montana Public Radio!  YOU make this station possible.

If you have questions about being a volunteer, please contact Membership and Volunteer Manager, Suzanne Grist, 406-243-4988.

Spring pledge week is April 15 - 22. Donate your thank-you gift or service today! The deadline is April 16.
