Give To The Max Day 2020
We're giving THANKS to the max!
Hold on to your chair—you know what time it is. It's GIVE TO THE MAX DAY, which means it's none other than KFAI's FUNKRAISER: 24 hours of FUNK on FA2.
We fell short of our Fall Drive goal and missed the entire run of our Summer Drive due to a signal drop caused by an outage at the IDS Center. So we're asking YOU to get FUNKY with us by shimmying your shoulders over to the donate button and dropping a donation in the FUNKY bucket for operational costs, building new community media educational offerings, and furthering the financial stability of KFAI.
Falling short of the fundraising goal is trending in many spaces. As a result, we're making financial decisions slowly and focusing on sustainable investments. More details about the FY23 budget and programming plans are just around the corner.
We are incredibly proud to have continued to amplify the voices of our community on our airwaves for the past 44 years. Constantly evolving, KFAI aims to deliver a unique radio experience that provides a platform, equipment, and training for community members who have been historically ignored or misrepresented by mainstream media. By providing programming in nine languages and broadcasting an eclectic blend of music, public affairs, and art & cultural programming, we connect communities, grow to understand, and produce a thriving democracy with intercultural dialogue.
KFAI is run for and by our community. Our hosts are community leaders, musicians, activists, change makers, and music lovers who work hard to give voice to communities. Our programming is primarily supported by folks in our community (like you!). Together, we'll keep KFAI here and growing for years to come. In the past year, your support has helped us with the following:
If what we've mentioned moves you, please consider making a donation to KFAI now.
Thank you for your support!! When you invest in KFAI, you're supporting vital voices lending to the growth of healthy, well-connected Twin Cities communities. THANK YOU!
