CKCU-FM is Canada’s oldest community and campus radio station. We officially hit the FM airwaves in November of 1975 and have been operating on the hard work and generosity of Ottawa’s radio loving community ever since. Our station finds its home on the campus of Carleton University in our nation’s capital, Ottawa.

In 1978 we launched our first ever Funding Drive, asking our listeners to show their support for community radio in their city. That year and each year following, not only the people of Ottawa, but listeners across the country and the world, have showed up to support CKCU.

This year we are aiming higher than ever before. With a goal of $250 000, we plan to fill the gap left by the Student Choice Initiative, offer more advanced volunteer training, update equipment and continue to bring you some of the best community programming in the country.

While we understand this is a big shift from our drives over the past years. This goal reflects a need to adapt to recent changes in student funding and government initiatives. We appreciate every penny that comes our way, we wouldn’t be the same CKCU without you. This year help us fight a choice where we had no option to choose. Here is to another year of funding CKCU!
