KXSC Fall 2018 Fundraiser
The fall semester has flown by – but it’s not over yet! Over the past few months, KXSC has been evolving in a number of exciting ways, and we owe it to our incredible staff, DJs, and alumni for dedicating so much of their time and energy to ensuring KXSC’s continued growth.
Unfortunately, time and energy don’t pay the bills! Running a radio station is costly, and as we are run entirely by student volunteers, we depend on YOUR support to help us continue operating efficiently. Our budget is limited, and greatly depends on the amount of donations we receive each year from you!
What do we do?
This semester, we’ve made good on our promise to continue enriching students’ experiences both on-campus and off. Our Street Team works tirelessly, offering DJs every opportunity to perform in front of enthusiastic crowds, all while supporting local businesses and student-run organizations. Having access to quality equipment helps us provide the best experience possible for our DJs, Street Team, and amazing audiences.
Similarly, our Music Department has been committed to expanding the knowledge base of DJs and listeners by building an archive of unique, rare – and sometimes, just essential – music that is handpicked ourselves. This semester alone, with the help of eager interns, the Music Department has personally archived over 300 CD’s, records, and digital files. This unprecedented access to incredible music has improved our programming and introduced our community to new sounds that few other college radio stations can boast! Alas, since much of this invaluable work requires us to dig through dusty record crates and shelves of used CDs, we depend on your donations to continue building this impressive library!
Looking to the Future!
College radio is an integral part of many students’ university experiences, and KXSC offers an incomparable outlet for creativity, discourse, and skill-building. We firmly believe in the longevity of college radio, and are constantly fighting for the preservation of this unique medium. However, broadcast media is evolving at an incredibly rapid pace. KXSC is always looking for new avenues to magnify the reach of student voices, and supporting college radio is a great way for you to help us experiment with different forms of outreach – be it our open-forum blog, our numerous events throughout the year, or collaborating with educators, professionals, and organizations from a diversity of fields.
Thank You for Donating!
Anything is appreciated, and by donating to KXSC, you can sleep easily knowing that our humble student radio station can continue doing ambitious things!
