FUNdrive 2017 is HERE!
Looking to donate? Go Here!
With your help, we hope to reach our goal of $30000!
What’s FUNdrive? Well, allow us.
FUNdrive is CKXU’s annual fundraising initiative, a time when we ask our supporters to dig deep and pledge their support towards the station! As usual, in return for your hard earned donated dollars, we have items such as CKXU friend’s cards, t-shirts, hoodies, live in-CKXU performance compilations, and more! We throw fun events in the community, have great programming features, and generally have a barrel of monkeys worth of fun doing it!
This week of fundraising will be held *March 17 – 24th* with live broadcasting starting bright and early every morning at 7am and going until midnight!
Along with all of the great live programming during the week, we also have these amazing events to offer up:
