CJNU 3rd Annual Pledge Weekend
Celebrating 10 years of giving voice to the community
This weekend, Thursday, October 27th to Sunday, October 30th
live from our home studio/office in the Richardson Building, at the very heart of our community.
It’s CJNU’s annual opportunity to reach out to all listeners – to encourage memberships and donations and thank those who already support the station. Our Pledge Weekend is a concentrated 4 day only event (in contrast to one and two week Pledge Drives staged by other stations). The Pledge Weekend provides funds equal to approximately 10% of our annual costs in just four days!
Although mainly volunteer run, costs of a full time licensed station are substantial. The last three years have been a time of great progress at community, listener supported CJNU. After being licensed by the CRTC in 2013, CJNU was able to increase power and move to our permanent spot on the dial at 93.7FM.
CJNU members and supporters have generously backed the station every step of the way. In 2014, during our first ever Pledge Weekend, 230 supporters committed $15,000, growing to $22,500 from 260 supporters last year. We promise the 3nd Annual CJNU Pledge Weekend will be entertaining with many special guests joining our regular CJNU announcers and volunteers.
The money from this Pledge Weekend has a special purpose: helping us meet operating costs of a licensed community non-profit station that operates 24/7, 365 days a year with limited commercials – often less than 1/3 of the advertising carried by commercial stations. We also commit a portion of the proceeds to a “rainy day” fund to cover unexpected operating costs and future needs. We all want to be certain that CJNU can continue its programming and service to the community for many years to come.
CJNU Pledge Weekend donations can be made through our website using a credit card. Or telephone our Weekend Pledge line 204-410-2700, open 8am Thursday Oct 27th through 6pm Sunday October 30th, or send us a cheque by mail to CJNU, 1350A – 1 Lombard Place, Winnipeg R3B 0X3. And this year, you can choose to make a one-time donation, or spread out your commitment over 12 months.
Any amount is sincerely appreciated.
We assure you that every cent will be carefully used to further the work of your Community Station, CJNU
Your dollar is worth more during the Weekend Pledge Drive:
Through the support of James Richardson and Sons Limited and other enthusiastic supporters of CJNU, the first $5,000 received is DOUBLED with matching dollars. $5,000 becomes $10,000 very quickly!
Peak of the Market provides 25 pounds of potatoes to Winnipeg Harvest for each of the first 200 weekend pledge donations. That’s 2 ½ tons of nourishing food to help sustain Winnipeg families in need while you sustain your favourite radio station.
