Why support KFAI? We’re community-powered and funded, and that means we can’t do the work without YOU!

KFAI’s community-powered 24/7/365 broadcast is known for its eclectic entertainment and public affairs programming that features 89 programs in nine languages, with 84 programs produced locally and in-house. People of color, the LGBTQIA+ community, and many intersectional identities lead more than 50% of the programs on the broadcast schedule, making KFAI one of Minnesota’s most culturally, generationally, and socio-economically diverse broadcast media outlets.

Beyond the broadcast, KFAI supports community building through developing, hosting, presenting, and sponsoring arts, entertainment, and cultural events across the Twin Cities.
