Kootenay Co-op Radio’s fundraising campaign runs from June 1 until June 30.

Kootenay Co-op Radio’s fundraising drive is on

Campaign runs for the month of June

For the entire month of June, Kootenay Coop Radio will be asking listeners and supporters to step up and show us that they value the work we do in the community.

As one of the only community radio stations in the Kootenays, both Creston and Salmo have folded in the last few years, it is vital that people recognize the importance of truly local media – media that is not controlled by corporations or advertising dollars but is beholden to community members. Kootenay Co-op Radio works under the 7 Co-op Principles and each of these principles influences how decisions are made at the station.

This Fundraising and Membership Drive month will see KCR hosting live music events at The Royal on Baker (on Saturday, June 16th) and Hall Street Plaza (on Friday, June 29th). Our annual ‘All Things Music’ record swap will once again take place at the station. We’ll also have numerous booths around the area where we’ll be talking to our listeners and supporters, answering questions, handing out program schedules and of course selling memberships.

Membership income makes up approximately one-third of our operational budget so our annual drive is very important when it comes to maintaining the quality of broadcasting at the station. Everything from equipment purchases to the number of staff hours we can afford is influenced by this drive.

Please consider renewing or becoming a member of Kootenay Coop Radio. If you’re already a member, consider becoming a monthly member.
