Contribute and Volunteer!

While our mission is to “free” the airwaves, doing so is definitely not free. There are a whole host of operating costs required to realize our dream of true community media in our city, including rent, licensing fees, utilities, and equipment costs.  To achieve our goals, we need your help and the support of our entire community. Forward Radio asks you to contribute whatever you can.  Funding, time, energy, ideas — we need it all!

Now is the time to get involved in shaping and sustaining Forward Radio!

Please DONATE to help to keep us on the air! Since we have no corporate sponsors, advertising, or grant funding, your financial support is crucial. It costs a minimum of $600/month to keep Forward Radio on the air. For just $20, you could fund an entire day’s broadcast! For just $50, you could fund an hour/week for an entire year! Tax-deductible contributions of any amount are always welcome!
