KBCS Sustainability Campaign

The KBCS Sustainability Campaign is underway. The goal of this campaign is to add 1,000 new monthly sustaining donors to the KBCS family of supporters over the next year (July 2020 – June 2021) and make the station financially sustainable.

The funding KBCS receives from individual donor-listeners make up the largest and most important portion of KBCS’s operating budget. It’s how we remain non-commercial and independent.
