KING FM is worthy of a strong community of philanthropic leaders who help shape the future of classical music in our community in a more meaningful way.

Members who join at the Performance Circle levels are donors able to make a deeper investment in making classical music available for all. With a gift of $1,000 or more, this leadership giving circle provides essential support to keep the station going and the music you love on the air. As a Performance Circle member, you will contribute to everything from helping fund larger station initiatives to building audiences for over 160 performing ensembles each year, and so much more for KING FM and the Puget Sound music community.

We are grateful to the members of Classical KING FM’s Performance Circle who have demonstrated their commitment to classical music programming with their annual and monthly sustaining support.

To learn more about matching your passion for classical music to your philanthropy, please email or call 206-691-2961.

KING FM is grateful to the foundations and public funders that support its mission.
