Broadcasting since 1971, KPOO San Francisco gives voice to the concerns of low income communities in San Francisco. Founded by Poor People's Radio, Inc., KPOO's ongoing mission has been to open the airwaves to the disenfranchised and underserved. Our station broadcasts news, public meetings, election, live events, interviews. Public service announcements and music not heard on any other radio stations. As such, KPOO has continued to have a very loyal listening audience.
Due to the suspension of the redevelopment meetings, KPOO has lost a major source of funding and is in danger of going off the air. WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please help us to continue to provide thousands of our listeners with the most unque radio in the world. Your tax-deductible donation will ensure that KPOO radio stays on the air.
What Your Donation Supports
Your donation will help cover the cost of maintaining the transmitter, live feeds, broadcast equipment, and day-to-day running of the station. All of our DJs and staff are volunteer, so every cent goes toward keeping the station on the air.
Every contribution makes a difference. KPOO gives voice to those who would otherwise not have their voices aired by mainstream media.
