Volunteer For MTPR

A special THANK YOU to everyone who donated their time during Pledge Week this year!  You make our fundraising weeks a true delight.

Although pledge week is over, there is still time to participate.  If you'd like to come in for an hour or two in the upcoming weeks to call some of our new members to extend gratitude for joining the MTPR family, please follow the link below to sign up.

THANK YOU so much for being a part of this wonderful community that is Montana Public Radio!

Volunteer Opportunities:

Call our members
Put in a friendly call of appreciation to our members and thank them for being a member.  These calling sessions happen twice a month during the evening hours, 5 - 7 p.m.

Answer Phones
Join us in the phone room to take pledge calls from Montana Public Radio listeners phoning in their pledge of support.  When you volunteer this way, you will have the opportunity to see our on air hosts in action.  We ask new phone room volunteers to please attend a one hour computer training session offered prior to our pledge drives.  Our on air pledge drives occur in October and April every year.

Computer Training
Learn how to take a call and enter the caller's pledge into our live database.  If it's your first time volunteering to answer phones, we highly recommend that you attend one of these 1-hour (or less) training sessions.  Several sessions are held in the KUFM studio, PARTV Building (Performing Arts & Radio/TV Center), the University of Montana campus, Missoula before the pledge drive.  Reserve your spot on our online sign up calendar.

Front Office Help
Greet visitors of the station while you lend your alphabetizing expertise to Sue in our front office by filing pledge forms. 

Food Runner
Be a food runner! It doesn't take much time, and is a huge help. This job involves picking up a meal from one of Missoula's great restaurants and delivering it to the station phone room. Breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Pre Packaging/Mailing Premiums (Thank you gifts)
During our annual Spring Pledge Drive, we offer hundreds of donated items as thank you gifts to our members who pledge their support during the drive.  We need volunteers before the drive to help organize these items, and then after the drive to help package and mail them to our supporters.

Poster Distribution
KUFM always needs help promoting our drives!  Many businesses and community establishments are willing to hang our posters for a time before our pledge drives and we are always looking for volunteers willing to get them there.  This can often be worked into your day as you stop in to the grocery store you frequent, or the library, or while on the University of Montana campus.  If you happen to travel outside of Missoula, and still within our listening area, take some posters with you!  There are many businesses around the state that support Montana Public Radio.  Please call 243-4988 if you're interested in helping put up posters in your listening area!

If you've never volunteered before and would like to be contacted when future opportunities come up, please follow the link to our volunteer form and provide us with your contact information.

Thank you for donating your time to Montana Public Radio!  YOU make this station possible.

If you have questions about being a volunteer, please contact Membership and Volunteer Coordinator, Suzanne Grist, 243-4988.
