CBAA Webinars

WEBINAR: Fundraising at your station - 28 January

Danny Chifley, 21st December 2015

Raising funds and creating revenue is essential to ensuring that your station remains sustainable. To maximise the value of existing revenue sources and best explore new opportunities, stations need to have a clear understanding of best practices and develop a plan that includes a range of revenue streams, such as donations, grants and radiothons.

The 2016 series of CBAA Webinars begins with a look at a topic of perpetual interest to all community broadcasters, maximising the effectiveness of fundraising at your station.

Bring your station's success stories and questions - learn from each other and from our presenter.

Who this webinar is for:

Station volunteers, staff and management wishing to arm themselves with the tools to take station fundraising to the next level.

Presented by:

The largest pressure faced by community radio stations is financial. Stations constantly face the reality of how to ensure an adequate operating income in an increasingly competitive mediascape. Van Vuuren (2006c) argues that the extent of the contribution of community media to media democracy in Australia depends largely on how the sector manages commercial pressures. There is a need to ensure more financial stability to allow stations to focus on their primary community-orientated and participatory goals.
