KPFA/Stu Steinhardt campaign update

Thursday, February 13th, 2020

Here’s the story, and you can of course still contribute!

The marathon happens on Saturday, 9am-1am Pacific!

Honoring Stu at KPFA: update

Tuesday, February 4th, 2020

Our campaign to raise $10,000 for KPFA in Stu Steinhardt’s name is coming along nicely. As of this afternoon, our total is $7,490.00!

Please add your contribution. Any amount is appreciated! Here’s a link to the story.

You can make a check payable to KPFA and send it to me –

David Gans
484 Lake Park Ave #102
Oakland CA 94610-2730

Or you can contribute via PayPal to david@trufun.com – make sure you mark it FRIENDS AND FAMILY so we don’t have to pay a fee – and include a note stating that it is a contribution to Stuart’s memorial fund.

We’re gonna “pay it forward” and give KPFA several years’ worth of the donations that Stu is no longer able to make. Nothing will replace the hours he gave to the station, nor the PIE he so generously baked for our music jocks. But this plaque will keep his memory alive at the station forever.

And please tune in for the KPFA Grateful Dead Marathon on Saturday, February 15, 9am to 1am pacific time.

Honoring Stu: current total!

Sunday, February 2nd, 2020

As of this morning, we have raised $6,205.00 toward our goal of $10,000. Here is the original post with all the info! Please read it, and please contribute!

Honoring Stu: update

Thursday, January 30th, 2020

This is a repost of the original announcement. Our total to date is $5,419. Keep the contributions coming, please!

Also: We’re auctioning a painting by my wife, Rita Hurault. Take a look and place your bid!

Everybody should have a friend who brings you pie.

Stuart Steinhardt was that friend, to many of us. He loved to bake, and he was wise enough not to consume his entire output – so he SHARED.

Among the beneficiaries of his sweet largesse were the hosts of Stu’s favorite music programs on KPFA, Berkeley’s pioneering listener-sponsored free speech radio station. He brought pies to many of us on countless occasions.

In addition to copious carbs, Stuart also gave generously to KPFA in both time and cash. I co-host a 16-hour Grateful Dead fund-raiser every winter, and Stu was a godsend on that day, year after year. He’d hang out for all or most of the day and night, helping out by answering phones, picking up food, etc. And he invariably wrote a check before leaving the building.

A group of us who were the beneficiaries of Stu’s kindness have come up with a plan to honor his memory at the station: we’d like to raise $10,000 by February 15, the day of the 2020 KPFA Grateful Dead marathon. KPFA has agreed to put up a plaque over the door of the phone room, honoring our dear friend’s lifetime of support.

To that end, we’d like to ask you to contribute. You can make a check payable to KPFA and send it to me –

David Gans
484 Lake Park Ave #102
Oakland CA 94610-2730

Or you can contribute via PayPal to david@trufun.com – make sure you mark it FRIENDS AND FAMILY so we don’t have to pay a fee – and include a note stating that it is a contribution to Stuart’s memorial fund.

NOTE FROM SANDY SONNENFELT:

Stuart and I had a love of radio in common. He was a fervent supporter of public radio and especially of KPFA. I am deeply moved that a group of his favorite volunteer music jocks have arranged to name the phone room after him.

KPFA depends on our donations to survive as one of the very few truly independent listener- supported radio stations. In honor of Stuart, I hope you will join us in donating to the station. No amount is too small. Thanks in advance for your generosity.

P.S. Stuart is wearing KPFA Marathon t-shirts in both of these photos!
