KLCC’s Brian Bull Wins 2017 PRNDI/NEFE Financial Reporting Award

CONTRIBUTE TO KLCC NOW

KLCC is losing $200,000 in funding from Lane Community College for the coming fiscal year.  We've been told this is a one-year suspension and not a permanent cut. 

The next year will be a challenge, but KLCC is more committed than ever to its mission to engage the mind, enrich the spirit, and deepen understanding of our community and our world.  As we prepare for this sudden funding loss, we are asking listeners to please help fill the financial gap.
