How can I purchase WXPN merchandise (t-shirts, CDs, mugs, etc.)?

WXPN merchandise is usually only available as a gift to members to thank them for making all the WXPN music discovery and community service possible. Because we are a nonprofit, it is not fiscally responsible for us to sell merchandise. Current members can make an additional donation and receive additional thank-you gifts. If you are not a current member, please join us today and select your gift!

When will I receive the thank-you gift(s) I selected?

Thank-you gifts are mailed based on their availability and receipt of your payment. Expect your gift(s) to be mailed within 4-8 weeks of your full payment or first installment. Due to packaging and availability, some gifts are mailed separately, and may arrive as far apart as 10 days. If you do not receive all of your gifts by 8 weeks after we received your payment, please contact WXPN Member Services at 1-800-565-9976 or

Is my donation to WXPN tax-deductible? When will I receive my tax letter?

Yes, as part of the University of Pennsylvania, WXPN is legally designated as a nonprofit, so donations are tax-deductible. Tax letters are emailed to all donors in January every year. If you need a copy of your tax letter mailed to you, please contact WXPN Member Services at 1-800-565-9976 or NOTE: Your tax-deductible amount may be impacted by total value of thank-you gifts and benefits you receive.
