Member gifts

As a member of 89.1 WBOI, we want you to feel appreciated. We also want you to be able to wear your membership with pride. 

Our Spring Membership Drive has been suspended to prioritize updates and breaking news surrounding COVID-19 and America's response to it. Even though you won't hear us fundraising on-air, we are still offering our special limited-time gift options from the Spring Membership Drive. Once the drive is relaunched and finished, many of these gifts go away - so, don’t miss out!  Below are WBOI's current membership gift options:

Seeds for Little River Wetlands Project’s Seed to Marsh program ($5 per month / $60 per year minimum) - You can give the gift that keeps on growing. Instead a mug or a tote bag, you can choose to provide a local school or non-profit with native plant seeds to be used for community education on habitat restoration. After students or community members learn how to grow native plants, they'll plant your donation at Eagle Marsh to benefit local wildlife.
