CJSW Funding Drive

The dates for this fundraising drive have passed.

Ahoy, mateys! It’s time to set sail for CJSW 90.9 FM’s 2018 Funding Drive!

Get ready landlubbers! We’re launching the 2018 Funding Drive! This year’s campaign starts at 9:00am on Friday, October 19 and cruising until 6:00pm on Friday, October 26. This year, the Funding Drive celebrates CJSW 90.9 FM’s role as the flagship vessel of Calgary’s airwaves—your FM Anchor. We are the safe harbour, the beacon that guides listeners through the fog, the rising tide that lifts all boats.

We are looking to have our crew of supporters help us on our voyage to reach our goal of raising $200,000. Along the way, we’ll remind you why CJSW Radio happens to be the flagship among all Canadian campus stations. CJSW Radio is Calgary’s only non-commercial campus and community radio station, broadcasting to the world from our state-of-the-art studios at the University of Calgary.

With over 100 shows in more than 10 languages, seven staff and over 300 volunteers, we bring diverse voices from throughout the community to speak with passion about issues that are important to you each and every day. We increase the profile of local, independent artists and organizations by dropping their tracks, hosting them on our programs, and announcing their events. We tell stories that you won’t hear anywhere else, and we strengthen relationships among the arts, business, intellectual, and cultural communities and the audiences they are looking to reach.

We need support from our listeners to help us keep afloat and make great radio waves 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. All of the money raised during the Funding Drive is used for the sole purpose of making great radio, as well as maintaining and operating our state-of-the-art studios and listener-friendly website. Here are examples of the projects CJSW has completed over the years thanks to pledges from our listeners:

2010 — Moved into a brand new station space
2011 — Digitized our enormous music library
2012 — Wattage increased from 4,000 to 18,000 watts
2013 — Launch of the new website
2014 — All CJSW programs available through podcasting
2015 — Listeners can text directly to the on-air booth
2016 — McHugh House, our downtown venue for all-ages concerts
2017 — CJSW in the Wild live broadcast capabilities

In addition to helping with our operational costs, your support will help us invest in new equipment that will allow us to continue to make high quality radio both in our studios and out in the community. This includes digital DJ controllers for the on-air booth, upgraded backline gear for the 200+ acts that grace our studios with live sessions, and high fidelity audio recorders for more nuanced field recordings. We will also be upgrading our back-up transmitter in the unlikely event that our main 18,000-watt broadcast ship ever gets seasick.

So get out your semaphore flags and ring the ship’s bell. We’re calling upon our savvy listeners to help keep our ship afloat. Together, let’s dig up that buried treasure and use it to help with continuation of the highest quality radio waves ever to wash over this magnificent community of ours.

Sail on over to or @cjsw for more information, and keep following our SS WaveBreaker sailor’s quest for the buried treasure on the FM dial at 90.9 FM!
