Support KTRL!

You can donate now and use your credit or check card. Your donation at any level will help ensure public radio for the Cross Timbers area, but we’d like to suggest a donation of $40 or more.

We hope that if you listen to and value the station, you will pitch in and make a donation. If you’re on campus in Stephenville, you can drop by the Math building, Room 138, to say hello while you drop off your check or credit card information.

The KTRL Leadership Circle is a new group of dedicated listeners that make an annual commitment of $1,000 or more. You can make a $1,000 donation online or contact the Development Office at (254) 968-9769.

Your participation is essential. Tarleton State University must raise funds from you, the listener, in order to keep KTRL as a public radio station.
