Please help us, help college radio! We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit charity dedicated to supporting college radio in all its forms!
WHY? Because college radio is one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming, free from the constrictions of having to be commercially viable, and a place where those involved in its programming believe passionately in its mission. College radio is the only free live medium brave enough to play unsigned, local, and independent artists on a regular basis. Indeed, many famous and successful bands today, owe their initial break to being played on college radio. Put simply, college radio is an important part of the media landscape because of its unique and fearless programming.
There are two ways you can directly support our work to help promote and support college radio.
1. You can kindly donate directly to the College Radio Fund – which provides station grants to those college stations that need them the most. We will be grateful for any size donation (anything over $250 is tax deductible):
2. You can join our ‘Friends of College Radio‘ – a society for anyone who passionately believes in the ongoing mission of college radio and wants to support its continued survival. The membership fee is just $5 per month. The membership dues are allocated between the College Radio Fund, supporting the annual College Radio Day and Vinylthon event and continuing operations of the College Radio Foundation:
Thanks again for your support! With your help we will continue to see college radio thrive and be an important training ground and educational experience for the next generation of broadcasters! Long live college radio!
