CJAM is having its annual pledge drive beginning October 20th until October 27th. The purpose of this pledge drive is to raise money for some much needed technical upgrades, as well as maintaining the station's daily operations.
CJAM is a non-profit campus-based community station. Most of our budget comes from annual fees by the students of the university which, despite inflation, hasn't seen an increase for nearly two decades. Very little money comes from advertising revenue. Therefore, we have no other option than to reach out to our listeners and fundraise to make up the additional 30% that is lost by inflation.
CJAM offers a wide variety of programming that you would not get from other stations. My show, not your boys club, is dedicated to giving space to womxn and non-binary musicians and artists to have their music heard and shared with the Windsor-Essex community.
Think of this donation as paying a $5-7 cover, or buying a $3-5 tape, or purchasing your favourite bands EP off of bandcamp for $5. Any small amount that you can donate will get you a handwritten and personalized letter from me as well as some CJAM stickers. Larger donations will get you CJAM merchandise (t-shirts, CDs, vinyl).
If you are unable to donate, that's okay, one way you can help is by sharing this page to your social media. Reach out to your friends and family. Help support campus and community radio.
