Get Involved

Our Get Involved series is just one of the ways that KUT and KUTX give back to our community. Each month we spotlight a local nonprofit that's in need of your help. In these stories we discover the purpose, motivation and the needs of the highlighted program. It's a way to connect our listeners, through volunteering or contributions, with charities that make an impact to Austinites. 

"Without volunteers, we could not help as many people as we do, but we always need more volunteers, both as individuals and groups. KUT listeners are people who care about their community and who can make time in their lives to help those less fortunate," Suellen Mills, Vice President for Volunteer Services of Meals on Wheel and More, said.

We began Get Involved back in 2006 and have shared the stories of more than 100 local nonprofits since then. 

Support for Get Involved comes from Thundercloud Subs. “Fresh, fast and healthy. Since 1975."

From Austin Angels, this month's Get Involved spotlight organization:  

Every child deserves love and consistency. But too many don’t receive it — especially those in our foster care system. Austin Angels is out to change that.

From Bike Austin, this month's Get Involved spotlight organization:

Bike Austin is the largest membership-based bicycle advocacy and education organization in central Texas. We are working to help transform the transportation landscape into a space that is safe and hospitable to people of all ages and abilities to move freely. Our aim is to see the number of people choosing to ride bicycles increase, especially for short trips, and it become a normal aspect of daily living for residents of Austin and the surrounding communities.

From Austin Bat Refuge, this month's Get Involved spotlight organization:

Austin Bat Refuge, at its core, is two long-time volunteer wildlife workers dedicated to promoting respect for bats and their place in the environment through education, conflict resolution, rehabilitation and release. We have been rehabilitating bats and assisting the community for 10 years; becoming a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in early 2016 has allowed us to fundraise to expand our education and rehabilitation capacities and to better assist local bats in trouble.

From Refugee Services of Texas, this month's Get Involved spotlight organization:

For 40 years, Refugee Services of Texas (RST) has proudly been serving refugees, asylees, survivors of human trafficking and other displaced or vulnerable men, women, and children in Texas.
