Donate to WCBN!

WCBN’s annual fundraiser is running until February 21. Your support during these ten days puts new music on the shelf and fixes broken turntables; we need you for our day to day. We ask now that you “resubscribe” to the freeform radio that you love, and support the continued education and cultural enrichment of students at the University of Michigan.

Give us a call or donate online, and keep listening.

Support student-run, freeform radio at the University of Michigan

After you donate at the University’s giving portal, please forward your gift receipt to our development director: dd@wcbn.org. If you'd like to dedicate your donation to a particular show, please tell us in that email.

To show our appreciation for your generous donation, we'd love to send you one of our artistic WCBN gifts. This year, we asked students and listeners like you to send in their WCBN-inspired artwork. We chose a few designs to turn into t-shirts and tote bags, so if you see anything below that you'd like, be sure to mention it when you forward us your gift receipt!

Justine likes to listen to WCBN on a bench in the park under the stars. She submitted this design, which we'll print on a black, American-made tee.

This design, by John, is universally understood to signify excellent music played by real humans. Printed in white ink on a royal blue American-made T-shirt.

Sonja painted this design with actual sparkly gold paint, but we’re going to screenprint it on a light blue American-made tee.

Olivia’s sister Mia won our contest this year with this awesome polaroid camera drawing.  We’re gonna print it on a tote bag—and don’t worry, we made sure it’s big enough for LPs.

Responding to significant demand, WCBN is offering sweatpants this year, in classic drawstring waistband/elastic leg style, with the letters WCBN emblazoned down the left leg.  (They’re flatulence-retardant!)

$75

Responding to significant demand, WCBN is offering an embroidered polo shirt this year.  Featuring our classic logo in white, on navy blue, this shirt is a classy way to show you’ve got great musical taste.

Olivia (age 6) sent us her drawing, and we think it embodies WCBN perfectly. Simultaneously listening and summoning music from thin air, this fellow is clearly deep in thought.

This cool cat is doing the DJ thing, like, on the radio, you know?  Misha Swisher sketched this one for us, and we've got ladies sizes in addition to unisex shirts.

Erin Norris is a member of the local band Casual Sweethearts, and this is their freeform-ready pedal board! You've got your re-re-reverb, your pitch shift slider, and be sure to loop.

Darby Walsh’s design, this cute bunny holding balloons made of teeth, inspired questions like “what animal did those teeth come from?” “how are they floating?” and “when can I put that drawing on my torso?”
