What is a Sustaining Membership?

Sustaining members donate to KUT month after month, year after year. KUT will charge your debit or credit card the amount you tell us, until you notify us to stop. There’s no need to ever wonder if your membership is current! As a sustaining member, your membership is always up-to-date. To find out more specifically about sustaining members, please click here to join, call (512) 475-6100 or email sustainer@kut.org.

Can I update or make changes to my Sustaining Membership?

Absolutely! To make a change to your personal information (address, contact info), credit card, monthly gift amount, etc, or to request an annual Thank You gift, please visit our Sustaining Member Page at kut.org/sustainer, call (512) 475-6100, or email sustainer@kut.org.

How long does my membership last?

Memberships (with the exception of Sustaining Membership) to KUT are for one year. If a person makes a gift to KUT in October, the membership will remain current until the following October.

At times KUT will ask members if they are able to make an additional gift. These additional gifts are a valuable revenue stream for the station.  Giving an additional gift does not extend a donor’s membership, unless the member requests it.

If you would like to renew your membership, please click here or mail a check to PO Box 7600, Austin, TX 78713.

When will I receive the thank you gift I requested?

KUT does not order thank you gifts until after the membership drive is over to save money. It ordinarily takes between 6-8 weeks for thank you gifts to be shipped once the drive is over. If you are curious about your thank you gift, please call 512-475-6100 or e-mail membership@kut.org.

How do I get my company to match my gift to KUT?

Matching gifts are a great way of enabling KUT to receive more money without having to send in an extra dime! In order to utilize your company’s matching program, go to the HR department for your company. There they will have the matching gift form. Just fill out the form and mail it to KUT at PO Box 7600, Austin, TX 78713. We’ll take care of the rest!

To see if your company matches gifts, click here. You will be redirected to a University of Texas Web site. Since KUT is licensed to the University of Texas they assist KUT with processing matching gifts.

Thanks so much for helping KUT raise additional funds. The matching money that we receive goes directly to the programming that you enjoy.

I want to give through my Charitable Organization but KUT Radio is not listed. What should I do?

KUT is part of The University of Texas at Austin and many organizations have consolidated their listing to only reflect The University, or sometimes, the UT Foundation. Please pick either and designate your gift to KUT Radio. UT’s Development Office will ensure that the funds are deposited into our accounts. If you are able to designate the gift directly to us, please use this address: 300 W Dean Keeton A0704, Austin, TX 78712. It can be a time consuming process for us to acknowledge your gift, however we appreciate your support and will notify you as quickly as possible.

You might be asked for KUT’s EIN; it is 74-6000203. However, if the donation must go to a 501c3, it will be directed through the UT Foundation whose EIN is 74-1587488.

Can I give a KUT Membership as a gift?

KUT can send gift memberships to people. We must put the gift amount on the person’s record who actually paid for the gift. However, we will make the person who is receiving the gift a member of KUT in our system. We can also mail Thank You gift items directly to the person receiving the membership.

If you would like to make a gift membership please call 512-475-6100 or e-mail membership@kut.org.

Can I make a gift in memory of someone?

KUT and KUTX gratefully accept donations made in the memory of a loved one.

Checks can be mailed to PO Box 7600, Austin, TX 78713. Also, please notify us at 512-475-6100 or membership@kut.org that a request has been made to donate to KUT. KUT will keep track of the donations and also send a thank you letter those those we know are giving in honor of a loved one.

Thank you for thinking of KUT. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the station if you have any other questions.

What is KUT's and KUTX’s Privacy Policy?

It is KUT’s and KUTX's policy not to rent, sell, swap, exchange, or trade the names, email and mailing addresses, phone numbers, or any other submitted listener information with any other organization.

We consider the security of your information a top priority.

KUT and KUTX are units of The University of Texas at Austin. Learn more about the University’s privacy policies here.

Why does my return envelope go to San Antonio?

For efficiency and security, checks and credit cards are processed directly by our local bank whose processing center is in San Antonio. All gifts are deposited directly into KUT’s bank accounts.

What is KUT’s Tax ID Number?

KUT Radio’s Federal EIN (Tax ID #) is 74-6000203. This ID is shared with several University of Texas institutions, so it is important to include “KUT Radio” as a line item in any donations, matching gifts, or other submissions that include KUT’s Tax ID.

Some organizations who ask you to provide KUT's EIN may be seeking a 501c3 [the EIN we've listed above is a 170c]. In that case, please provide The UT Foundation's EIN – they accept gifts on behalf of The University of Texas at Austin, including KUT & KUTX Radio, and will ensure that the funds are deposited into our accounts. That EIN is 74-1587488.

When will I get my tax receipt?
