Having cash reserves (money in the bank!) isn’t a not-for-profit no no. Rather, it protects your station from unexpected change, something that’s more frequent in an age of tightened purse strings and increasing need.


Small stations, especially those in regional, rural and remote areas, know intimately the challenges of running a community station — both financially and in terms of engaging their audience. However when new trials arise, these stations also exercise great flexibility and find highly inventive ways in which to move forward.


Join us as we explore a step-by-step guide to getting sponsorship sales going in your station, including access to resources, recommended tools, and a practical process to get you through the first 12 months of sponsorship sales.
