KBCS Sustainability Campaign and Fiscal Year are Coming to a Close
KBCS’s Sustainability Campaign and fiscal year are coming to a close on June 30th. Please help KBCS reach our goal of 1,000 new sustainers within the fiscal year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021) by signing up as a monthly sustaining donor today! (Click Here to Become a Sustainer!)
History of the KBCS Sustainability Campaign
Just before the start of KBCS’s fiscal year on July 1, 2020, Bellevue College announced it would no longer provide annual funding to supplement the station’s budget. (See Original Announcement)
In response, we kicked off our year-long Sustainability Campaign that would coincide with our fiscal year and include a goal of making up for the $150,000 loss in funding from the college within the fiscal year and gaining 1,000 new monthly sustaining donors, so KBCS would start the new fiscal year with firm financial footing.
We’re humbled to announce that thanks to our generous donors, we’ve met our first goal of raising the additional $150,000 needed in order to have a balanced budget at the end of our fiscal year on June 30th. Thank you to all of our amazing donors and sustaining donors who have helped KBCS through this trying time, and kept our programming going strong over the past fiscal year.
With only a few weeks to go, we still need to add 250 sustaining members to help KBCS start the new fiscal year strong and reach our 1,000 new sustainer goal before the end of the sustainability campaign and our fiscal year on June 30th.
If you’ve yet to do so, please become a sustaining member today to help KBCS reach our Sustainability Campaign and Fiscal Year-End goals by June 30th. You can sign up to become a sustaining member on our website here, and thank you in advance.
Again, thank you so much to all of our amazing listener-contributors who have made financial contributions or become sustaining members. We couldn’t do any of this without you, and look forward to continuing to serve you with diverse music and quality news and public affairs programs.
Some Matters of Relative Significance
Dear Friends and Supporters of KBCS,
I hope my message this month finds everyone safe and doing as well as can be expected during these difficult times. We are still processing and collating the donations and comments from well over a thousand KBCS true believers that were made during our “virtual” fall fundraising campaign.
