  • You Power Our Tower!

    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

    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 to see all the options and make your donation today.

    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 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

  • Fundrive Artist - Allan Lorde

    Posted by Rob on February 12th, 2022

    Each year, CKUW asks a local artist for an original design to share on t-shirts and in our community. For 2022 we are grateful to have a design from Allan Lorde. Allans cats were first seen on the cover of the fall 2020 Stylus Magazine. A dedicated and enthusiastic music fan, Allan has given us many fun covers for Stylus as well as creating a great logo for our Radio Camp in 2011.
