Calling all Volunteers!

August 28, 2014, 2:23 pm

CKUA receives 64% of its revenue from donations. When we start a relationship with a donor we want to make sure the relationship lasts a lifetime! But as you know, life sometimes gets in the way of making regular donations to your favourite radio station, and it helps to have a friendly reminder from a dedicated volunteer who also loves CKUA.

Please contact us if you are interested in helping make phone calls to lapsed donors. These are CKUA supporters who have given in the past, but not in the previous two fundraisers. We'll be asking them to consider starting to donate to CKUA once again, and even to consider becoming a monthly donor. Any donations made during this blitz will be doubled by our leadership pool of funds!

We’ll be making the calls from Studio A, on the 2nd floor beside Main Control. You can sign up for more than one shift (we hope to have 8-10 volunteers for each shift). There will be a light snack and refreshments, and the volunteer who signs up the most monthly donors will get a pair of one day passes to next year’s Edmonton Folk Music Festival!

Dates & Times:
Tuesday, September 23 (6-9pm):  Mandatory Volunteer Orientation for new volunteers

Monday, September 29 to Thursday, October 2, (9am-Noon AND 6pm-9pm daily)

Did You Know? (data from our Fall 2013 blitz)
Total raised was $4,800, totaling $9,600 when matched)
Average gift amount was $100

Get Started!
For questions or to volunteer, please email Tira Mills, Development Associate.
