What is CFUV’s Funding Drive?
CFUV is a non-profit, campus & community radio station. The great work of the station is powered by community volunteers and a small staff.
Every year we count on support from our community and listeners to raise money for the radio station. Fund raised go towards supporting the upkeep and operations of the radio station, which includes things like new equipment purchases, repairs, and growing web and technology costs among other expenses associated with operating a FM radio station.
This year our goal is to raise $35,000 – which would make it the most successful campaign in our 30+ year history.
When is Funding Drive 2017?
The on-air portion of funding drive runs from March 10th to 17th during which time we’ll be producing some great radio and asking for your support. We also accept donations year round. Radio never sleeps!
Besides feeling great about supporting a community arts and broadcasting organization that is dedicated to supporting the local community, we also have some great incentives for donors. Donors can choose between a charitable tax receipt or a station gift:
- $25+ for a mug
- $50+ for a mug & record bag
- $75+ for a mug, record bag & t-shirt
- $150+ for a mug, record bag, t-shirt & sweatshirt
There will also be some great spot prizes available, donated by local businesses, that will be available to donors who phone/text during the on-air campaign.
How to donate?
Donors can choose to donate monthly or make a one-time donation. You can phone or text our studio between March 10th and 17th at 250-721-8700
You can also donate online using UVic’s Secure Donation Page – just make sure you indicate in the comments what volunteer/program you’re supporting and whether you’d like a tax receipt or gift.
