Year-End Giving at Radio Boise

Our 15th annual Practice New Year’s Eve Party is a hallowed non-holiday tradition here at Radio Boise, and is a key fundraiser for the station that celebrates music, the spirit of community radio and the people that sustain KRBX. Previous PNYE events have supported the station to the tune of $15,000 through admissions, drink sales and our online auction. It’s also known as a killer party with music that defies expectations. Due to the current situation, we’re keeping it simple with our online auction and a two-hour streaming holiday special, and we can’t wait until the in-person event returns. 

Here’s how you can sponsor Radio Boise programming with year-end support that will keep our programming strong in the first months of 2021.

• Online Auction: This year, we’ll be featuring 100 items from local businesses, artists and musicians who have generously supported us with an array of gifts for you to bid on. Auction will launch online on Tuesday, December 1 and run through Sunday, December 13.

Featured items include signed memorabilia, gift memberships, art and a guitar signed by Radio Boise DJs. Bid early and often to fund your community radio station while shopping local.

• Our Practice New Year’s Eve Streaming Non-Holiday Special will be held virtually Friday, December 11 from 7-9 PM. Join us for a virtual evening event including an Artist Performance Showcase featuring material created during the year. The event will feature volunteer awards, reflections from 2020 and hope for the future. No admission required, and the event will be available for viewing following the 11th.

• Matching Gifts: Already supported Radio Boise with a gift this year? Check this easy form to see if your employer offers matching gifts for financial contributions or volunteer time. 

• Year-End Contributions: Although we just had an incredible Radiothon, we know many of you choose to close the year out with year-end gifts to your favorite non-profits. If you are planning on making a year-end gift to Radio Boise, we’ll feature specific donation options through our online auction. You can also give anytime at, or by sending a check to 1020 W. Main Street, Suite 50, Boise, ID 83702. 

Need an additional incentive? Due to the CARES Act, taxpayers can deduct up to $300, even if they take the standard deduction.

• Car Donation: Donations of used vehicles to Radio Boise provides an average of $5,000 each year to the station. It’s quick, easy and a great way to fuel our people-power. If your vehicle no longer brings you joy, December is a great time to free up space and keep free-form radio alive.


Have an item you’d like to donate for our online auction? There’s still time to include your generous in-kind gift in this year’s offerings (we need info by Monday, November 30, items need to be at the station by close of auction on Sunday, December 13).

Radio Boise’s goal is to raise $30,000 between our online auction, PNYE virtual event and year-end contributions. Your support will ensure that our radio community can continue to provide a refuge for your ears, head and heart throughout the winter. We are humbled by the outpouring of your generosity this year, and all contributions are deeply appreciated!
