What is the difference between WBEZ and Chicago Public Media?
WBEZ are the call letters for our radio station, 91.5 FM Chicago (simulcast on 90.7 FM, Morris), as well as our website WBEZ.org. Chicago Public Media is the parent organization that owns WBEZ, Sound Opinions and Vocalo.

When I become a member of WBEZ what does my donation support?
Donations pay for all costs to acquire, produce and deliver content on WBEZ and WBEZ.org including NPR programming such as Morning Edition and All Things Considered and locally produced programs such as The Morning Shift and Worldview. WBEZ membership also supports other Chicago Public Media initiatives such as Sound Opinions and Vocalo. Check out our Charity Navigator rating on how well we manage your donation (hint: we do a good job!).

Can I give you a donation but restrict it to be spent on a certain program, such as Morning Edition? 
No. All individual donations to Chicago Public Media are unrestricted. Your donation supports our general operating budget, which includes all Chicago Public Media expenses. 

Do you share (or rent, trade, etc.) donor information with other organizations?
