YOUR support is now more important than ever. This spring, the University of Kansas cut KPR's budget by $216,571 as they braced for financial setbacks from the pandemic. This is in addition to a number of others cuts over the years, totaling $521,571 less annual support from the university since budget reductions began in FY15. That is why we come to you, our loyal listeners, for the support we need to keep this station running strong, because your contributions, along with underwriting, now make up more than 84% of our annual budget.
