The annual on-air pledge CKUW Fundrive pledge campaign begins today and ends on Friday, February 13, 2015. This FUNdrive celebrates ad free community radio with a week of special programming.

Listeners are encouraged to call 204-774-6877 and pledge their support for listener driven radio. Listener donations are critical for maintaining and growing CKUW’s radio service.In addition to the good feeling of supporting ad free, democratic media, many donors will be thanked with special CKUW Fundrive incentives including T-shirts, toques and the CKUW Friends discount card.

Special this year, donors contributing $95.90 or more can get a handmade CKUW coffee mug. Last year’s Fundrive raised more than $46,000 for CKUW and set a new station record of $62,000 pledged. Fundrive 2015’s exclusive T-Shirts were designed by local artist Suzie Smith. Check out FUNdrive photos.

This year’s Fundrive continues a tradition started with the FM launch of CKUW in 1999. Since then, the station’s listeners have donated more than $480,000 to Winnipeg’s ‘Downtown Underground’ radio. Unlike private radio, 95.9 FM CKUW doesn’t rely on any advertising to keep the station going.
