A donation of any amount activates your membership with Classical King FM. Become a Sustaining Member with a recurring monthly gift, or make a one-time/annual gift.  With a $1000 donation, you’ll join KING FM’s Performance Circle and receive exclusive access to in-studio events and other benefits.

KING FM Sustaining Members make convenient, ongoing monthly contributions – which means less mail, no renewal notices and uninterrupted KING FM Membership status.

A Sustaining Membership is an easy and efficient way for you to support the classical music you love and rely on through secure, automatic monthly payments from your credit card, debit card or bank account. This means we’ll deduct your designated contribution from your account until you let us know to stop or change it.

You can increase, decrease, or stop your sustaining membership at any time by emailing us at or by calling our Member Services at 206-691-2981.

Sustainers have access to:

  • Exclusive behind-the-scenes information
  • The first to know about upcoming KING FM Events and special member-only offers
  • Automatic entry for all fund drive and year-round sweepstakes and other special offers
  • The satisfaction of knowing your contribution is going further – less paper, stamps and administrative costs means more of your contribution goes into the music you love.

A: A direct debit recurring gift from your bank account allows your donation to go the farthest by saving KING FM on credit card and debit card fees, and other processing and administrative costs.
