We greatly appreciate all of our allies, partners and sponsors. It takes many supporters and friends to fulfil our mission.
We recognize grants and donations in many ways:
As you can see at http://ncra.ca/donors/our-funders, we want all our visitors to see who is supporting our mission! Thanks to all those appearing there, we couldn't do it without you.
We use our Annual Report, member newsletters, press releases, and other publications to publicize our funders and sponsors internally and to sector stakeholders.
At the annual National Campus and Community Radio Conference (to be held on Gabriola Island in 2010), we make sure to let our delegates know who is supporting the NCRA and deserves their patronage in return. As well, we accept sponsors specifically for conference events - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Funders who sponsor GroundWire are thanked on-air in the bi-weekly program, which airs on over 29 stations.
More details coming soon to http://ncra.ca/donors/friends-of-community-radio: this is a club of sustaining donors who give regularly by automated funds transfer. In return we acknowledge them in publications and on our website, and they receive some special goodies from time to time. FOCR members can earmark a portion of their donation to go straight back to the member station of their choice - it's a good way to keep in touch with your home station and stay connected to those awesome radio people!
And we're happy to work with funders to think of even more forms of recognition.
