    Thank you to everyone who has supported CKUW so far during our Fundrive. Your donations have surpassed $17,000 and we are very grateful. If you haven’t made a contribution please call us now at 204-774-6877 or pledge online

    Listener donations ensure that CKUW can remain independent and ad-free. We want to continue providing the diverse high-quality radio service you enjoy at 95.9 FM but we can’t keep doing it without your support.

    In addition to keeping our broadcasts alive your donation can earn some great thank you gifts from CKUW. Go to our online pledge page ( Pledge Securely Online ) to see examples of these or call us now and our operators will walk you through the pledge process.
