Underwrite and Support WUMD

Why Underwrite?

WUMD FM 89.3 is a non -commercial, educational radio station whose license is held by the University of Massachusetts. WUMD FM 89.3 is owned by the University of Massachusetts and located at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. The University is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization; all your donations including program underwriting are tax-deductible. As an alternative to advertising, underwriting is a way for you or your business to gain community-wide recognition for your support of WUMD and it’s commitment to quality and diverse programming. In addition, the on-air acknowledgements enhance your image as participants in, and supporters of organizations in our community. Programming on WUMD addresses current issues relevant to the university and surrounding communities with an emphasis on voices and viewpoints which are underrepresented in the mainstream media. Jazz, Folk, Alternative Rock, World, Reggae, Blues, Metal, Roots, and Public Affairs programs are broadcast 24 hours a day, 365 days a year . WUMD’s current programming schedule can be found at 893wumd.org.
