When we started our fall fundraiser last week, it was with an ambitious goal and a message: We Make It Together.
Over the past few days, you have proven that. Whether it was the many volunteers and artists that gave their time, the sponsors who donated prizes, or the generous donors who helped us reach — AND beat — our final goal, raising: $639,251. You’ve proven that CKUA is more than just a radio station. It is an incredible community made up of passionate, dedicated people on both sides of the radio.
Not only did we reach our fundraising goal, but we broke records for the highest number of donors during a campaign: 4300. And we beat out new donor goal with 1133 new additions to the CKUA family.
With the fundraiser over, we now turn to using the money raised to continue doing what we do — helping foster and promote talented musicians, celebrate Alberta’s incredible cultural community and bring you one-of-a-kind radio.
We also wanted to congratulate the winners of our various prizes over the fundraiser — we’re still getting things ready to pick our grand prize, as well as our first-time donor and new monthly donor/increased monthly donor prize. We’ll be announcing those winners later this week.
