We have a special program for you today for a couple of reasons: I'm joined live and in-studio by a pair of my favourite fellow primates, Victoria-based activist and CFUV Radio broadcaster at-large, Janine Bandcroft is here, as is local greentrepreneur and horticulturalist extraordinaire, Christina Nikolic.
If you listen regularly, you already know, Janine and Christina bring us the Left Coast Events Bulletin, your vital guide to some of the good things to get up to in and around Victoria week in and week out.
Today we three together form the Lean Green Gorilla Radio Funding Drive Money Raising Team - and we've got a beastly hunger for your figurative banana dreams!!!! See below for more...but suffice to say, you can begin by dialing 250-721-8700 NOW...
CFUV’s ANNUAL Funding Drive is here!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. FUNDING DRIVE is here from March 16th-23rd!
Every year CFUV programs our hearts out to raise money for our beloved little radio station.
For this period of annual fundraising you can be sure to hear captivating radio, live performances, and passionate volunteers over CFUV’s airwaves. During Funding Drive, donations are taken in person or over the phone so we can continue to do what we do best – making innovative radio for Victoria and beyond!
Since 1984, CFUV has been a quintessential aspect to the Victoria community, providing alternative airwaves for everyone on Vancouver Island to connect with. Not only do we make unique radio, we teach people how to program, we advocate for marginalized/unrepresented voices, we provide accessible airwaves to those with disabilities, and we contribute to the Victoria community by sponsoring shows, hosting concerts, and supporting local. Whether it’s becoming a programmer for your own radio show, creating podcasts, or just wanting to discover great Canadian artists, CFUV aims to provide listeners and volunteers with a fresher and alternative form of radio broadcasting.
Donations received during Funding Drive go towards keeping what makes CFUV so great, and continues to provide a space for students and Victoria residents alike to come together and develop their creative talents. This year’s Funding Drive will run from March 16th to the 23rd, so get PUMPED!
