the project a 501(c)(3) non-profit?
No. It was decided not to convert the station
license to non-commercial status.
Why not switch to offical non-profit status?
There are a variety of reasons that the
broadcast license owners decided not to file to change the
station license from commercial to non-commercial status.
those revolves around that fact that once a station license is
converted to non-commercial status,
it severely limits the type
of announcements that can be aired on behalf of the station's
supporters, sponsors, and underwriters.
is, non-commercial radio stations are prevented from rewarding
their supporters/sponsors/underwriters with a "call to action"
like "come on
for Taco Tuesday" or "be sure and come by for our big close-out sale"
severely impacts the station's ability to provide something of value to
its underwriters in exchange for their support.
Can a private individual or business commit the use of
one of its assets to a charitable cause and/or community service?
Short answer...yes. A business or an individual
can designate some asset they own to be used for a charitable cause and/or community service.
How will the money be used?
sponsorship proceeds will be used firstly to offset monthly operational
costs. Secondly, sponsorship funding will be used for facilities repair. And thirdly, subject to remaining resources, funds will be used to acquire equipment to
launch the small FM that was recently licensed to the station.
collected funds will be used for these purposes as necessary week to
