  • Fundrive Home Stretch!

    Posted by Rob on February 24th, 2022

    We are in the final 30 hours of Fundrive and just over 2/3 of the way to our goal with $40,773 pledged, thank you to everyone who has given so far.

    Every dollar counts in these final hours, a donation of $70 helps fund volunteer training and education while a gift of $160 covers about five days of our broadcast tower rent. You can split your pledge up over several payments and we’ll thank you with the Friends card, 2022 gifts and a chance to win one of the many bonus music gifts from our partners in the music industry. Donate today at fundrive.ckuw.ca

    CKUW is managed by the WCCRS an open and democratic non-profit, audited every year for the CRTC. If you have any questions about CKUW’s operation please get in touch, we want you to feel confident that your donation is supporting our volunteers and the community we reach through radio.

  • You Power Our Tower!

    Posted by Rob on February 21st, 2022

    From 1963 to our FM launch in 1999 our radio dream was kept alive by students and their belief in the power of music and communication! Today it is your contributions at Fundrive time that help keep our radio station on the air.

    We have raised $33,575 so far for CKUW, just past half of our goal of $60,000. Phones are open 8am-8pm for calls or you can pledge any time online at fundrive.ckuw.ca

    Without the dreams of students we wouldn’t have ever made it onto the FM dial, without the contributions of listeners like you we won’t be able to continue nurturing our dream of independent community radio in downtown Winnipeg. Please give today, for donations of $160 or more you can select the warm & stylish CKUW hoodie as your premium thank you gift. Go to fundrive.ckuw.ca to see all the options and make your donation today.

  • $21,573 and Counting…

    Posted by Rob on February 16th, 2022

    Thank you to everyone who has donated to CKUW so far during Fundrive. We’re a third of the way to our goal with nine days to go, lets keep it up!

    Community participation and support are fundamental to the nature of a station like CKUW. Without community volunteers we’d have no local programming, without community donors we would lack the budget necessary to survive. Donate today at ckuw.ca/donate to be a part of the community of like minded folks who value local, public, non-profit radio.

    Donors of $120 or more can be thanked with the gift of a CKUW steel mug from Miir . Ideal for hot or cold beverages this steel, insulated camp mug looks great and has a lifetime warranty. Mug for me please
