One Day for UK 2020 has ended! You can still support the University of Kentucky by clicking here!
WUKY

Independent, unbiased journalism is the backbone of American democracy. While other sources of vital news and information—particularly at the local level—are drying up, WUKY and NPR continue to expand and improve our coverage of the stories that matter to you and your community. That same independent spirit informs WUKY’s music programs, which offer unique and compelling music you simply can’t find anywhere else.

 

Your contribution today to the WUKY Listener Endowment Fund guarantees the future of the news and music programs you count on. Revenue from the endowment will flow directly into the station’s operating budget, enabling WUKY to support current programming and equipment costs, create new programs, and better serve Lexington and Central Kentucky.

 

Thanks to an anonymous WUKY listener, your gifts to the endowment on this One Day for UK will be matched, up to a total of $20,000. Please do your part now to ensure that WUKY remains your trusted source for news and music.
