Join the Circle of Friends

In order to recognize significant annual support, WRKF has established the Circle of Friends, a growing group of our station's most generous donors that make leadership gifts totaling $1,000 or more annually.

WRKF's Circle of Friends share in the vision and commitment that Baton Rouge and south central Louisiana is a better place to live with a vibrant public radio station.

The WRKF Circle of Friends has special benefits that better connect you with the programs and services you help make possible. There are key recognition benefits Circle of Friends members are entitled to, which include on-air, print and the WRKF website. We plan to regularly communicate how Circle of Friends' dollars are making a difference.

Support at the Circle of Friends level helps affirm and invigorate WRKF's importance to our community.
