Vancouver Co-op Radio’s 2020
Fall Fundraising Drive

Wednesday October 21st to Sunday November 1st, 2020

Mark your calendars for Vancouver Co-op Radio’s 2020 Fall Fundraising Drive.

 

DONATE NOW

 

Like all of you, we have been feeling the effects of COVID-19 on our station and on our community. In March we closed the station but continued to broadcast remotely. Thanks to the resilience of our amazing volunteers, we could continue to provide you with diverse and hyper-local programming.

Even though we have continued to broadcast, the additional cost of providing volunteers with at-home recording equipment ate into our budget. This Fall Fundraiser, we are hoping to raise more than we have ever raised before to help recoup those costs and have enough to continue supporting our programmers remotely. We are looking to purchase at least 10 of the Zoom Podtrak 4 devices that will help some of our programmers record high quality interviews from home:

Zoom Podtrak 4
Each costs approximately $270
We need at least 10 of them! 

If you can help us out, you can donate through our website, mail a cheque to us or send an e-transfer to admin@coopradio.org.

*Please note that the station is closed due to the pandemic. For the safety of our community in the DTES, please do not drop cash/cheques off at the station. Please donate online or mail a cash/cheque to us at 370 Columbia St, Vancouver BC V6A 4J1.
