What is Fund Drive?

During the 10 days of KCSB’s Annual Fund Drive, we broadcast special programs in the hopes of gaining listener support and contributions. KCSB receives no state funding. Money donated during Fund Drive is necessary to fund day to day station operations as well as putting on events, workshops, & more in the local community.
