KXSC Spring 2019 Fundraiser
Another school year has come and gone, and KXSC has continued to grow tremendously thanks to the hard work of our DJs, staff, and alumni! Those of us graduating must now pass the torch onto the next generation of KXSC, while others will be returning dead-set on expanding our horizons and boldly conquering whatever challenges might come our way.
But running a radio station is costly! Since we are managed entirely by student volunteers, KXSC relies on YOUR help to continue operating efficiently. Our budget is limited, and greatly depends on the amount of donations we receive each year from our incredible supporters. To ensure that KXSC’s hardworking community has all the resources it needs to thrive, it’s time once again for our annual Spring Fundraiser!
What have we been up to?
This semester, our programming schedule has seen incredible growth both in the diversity of content as well as the sheer number of DJs broadcasting each day. From celebrating Black History Month, to hosting live bands in our office each Friday afternoon, our airwaves are rarely given a moment's rest - and that's the way we like it! However, our studio is in constant need of maintenance, and simple amenities such as cables and batteries are often in short supply. Furthermore, giving DJs the unique opportunity to experiment with gear they might not otherwise have access to - like our Pioneer CDJs and Technics turntables - is a high priority for KXSC, where we believe we have a responsibility to share as many of our resources with our community as possible. More experiences like these, as well as covering the basic operating costs of running a radio station almost 24/7, would be an incredible way to continue ensuring that KXSC remains a distinct space of discovery and creativity on USC's campus.
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!
