Please support SomaFM

It's a challenge to run a commercial-free, listener supported radio station in today's economic environment. It seems like we're always begging you for money, and that's because we have to: we rely entirely on you to keep us on the air. So please, make the effort to support SomaFM. We'll be there for you, but we need your financial help.

We hope that our music provides you with enjoyment, and we hope you'll offer a little something back our way to finance our continued operation. You can simply make a one-time donation, or sign up for an automatic monthly payment. Or if you want one of our premiums, choose from the links below.

SomaFM accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and Paypal online; or you can also send a check or money order drawn on US Dollars.

T-shirts, Mugs, CDs and other Premiums

We have several premiums available to our supporters:

One-time Donation

Don't want a premium and want all of your donation to go to running SomaFM? Use these links to make a quick donation to SomaFM with Paypal or Credit Cards:

Donate any amount!

Your support of any amount helps us stay on the air, providing commercial-free music that can't be found anywhere else. You can donate as little as $1 or as much as you'd like. Donating $10-$20 really, really helps us! We accept all major credit cards as well as Paypal. You do not have to create a Paypal account for a one-time donation.  

Automatic Monthly Subscription

A simple, effective way to support SomaFM is through an automatic monthly subscription. You can cancel it at any time, and you can support us with as little as $2.99 a month. Considering that satellite and other internet music services charge between $13-20 a month, don't you think SomaFM is worth it?

Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time (details), and there is no minimum subscription duration.

By Mail

You can also send us a donation in the mail. If you are sending a check, please make sure it is drawn on a US bank in US dollars. You can also send an international postal money order. (You can send cash at your own risk.)

Please be sure to include your address if you're requesting a shirt or stickers. For shirt orders, please include the size and color shirt you want. Send it to:

SomaFM
2180 Bryant Street
Suite 208
San Francisco, CA 94110 US

Monthly Fundraising Update

So far today we've raised $971, and for the month $26,614. We still are trying to raise $8,385 more by the end of the month.

We rely on you for support!

If you value SomaFM and the music we play, please support us. We operate on a voluntary subscription model to ensure that no one is left out: we don't want to exclude someone who wants to listen but can't afford to support us financially. But if you can afford to support us, we're counting on you to do just that.

Other internet radio stations make lots of money playing 5-10 minutes of annoying commercials each hour, but that really detracts from the music we play, and if we played all those commercials, we wouldn't want to listen to our own stations!

If you think about all the great music you get to hear on SomaFM, doesn't $4.20 a month or $50 a year seem like a great deal?

We have always and will continue to operate on a sustainable financial model with no outside investors or venture capitalists to answer to, allowing us to be truly independent internet radio. Making a great radio station that you can count on is more important to us than making money, not the other way around (like most other radio stations).

(Financial support of SomaFM is not tax-deductible.)

Thanks for your support,

Rusty Hodge
Program Director and General Manager
