CJLO's 2022 Funding Drive is Upon Us

We are well into October, and that means we’re about to kick off our annual Funding Drive! As we ramp up for that, here’s a quick overview of the incentive tiers from the station.

There are one-time donations ranging from $5-$250, and recurring donations ranging from $3/month-$25/month. You can find more information and donate here. (Check back for a list of show-specific donation incentives, coming soon!). 

We’re hoping to raise $1,200 before October 20th, which is when the Funding Drive officially starts.

The exciting events you can expect from this year's drive: 

Introduction to DJing for Gender Minorities 
Learn the basics to DJing and get some hands-on experience spinning tracks with this in-person workshop. Open to women or anyone who identifies as a gender minority. Instructors Lady Oracle and Sugarface Belfo will be bringing their consoles and equipment, and each participant will be given time to experiment with music on their own.

When: Saturday October 22nd, 11am-4pm

Trivia Night 

Show off your smarts as CJLO teams up with the Monday night trivia held every week at Ye Olde Orchard, to present a special edition for CJLO's Funding Drive. Form teams with up to 6 people and compete to win cool prizes, including passes to RIDM and Eastern Bloc, as well as vouchers for Chef On Call and Nilufar, and merch bundles from local record labels!”

On top of all these events, there’s also the option to show support with CJLO exclusive merch showcasing this year’s Funding Drive theme of “Livin’ for the City”.
