Hi I’m Sonali Kolhatkar, host of Rising Up With Sonali. The program that I host is created and produced every single day by KPFK Pacifica Radio. Because of generous donations from KPFK’s listeners our show airs on community radio stations throughout the country and on cable television stations through Free Speech TV like Dish Network, DirecTV, Roku. Pretty amazing for a low-budget station like KPFK, right?

You can support KPFK’s work and the work that my producer every day by going online to and making a donation. Just pick the amount you want to donate, and remember to dedicate your donation to Rising Up With Sonali.

Making online donations to KPFK without thank you gifts saves the stations a lot of overhead funds and staff time. So, again, go to and make a donation.

Now, you can get your name permanently etched into the KPFK Community Tree which can be found in the front reception area of the station. Any donation of $1000 or more will earn you a pride of place on the Community Tree. Just go to and make a $1000 donation and we’ll put your name on one of the leaves of the community tree, permanently.

Thank you SO much for your support.
