What is Fund Drive? 

During the 10 days of KCSB’s Fund Drive, our DJ’s will be spinning special programs to celebrate our listeners, our history, and all that makes KCSB special! We receive no state funding, so the generosity of students and the greater community during the drive is essential to keeping the station up and running.

During the drive, from February 14 to 23, you can call or donate online to help us reach our goals. Keep a look out for a full list of donation gifts we have available this year, ranging from CDs, concert tickets, and gift cards to mugs, tote bags, and our newest KCSB T-shirts. You give back and we’ll gift right back to you.

This year’s theme is “Dial-In: Live and Electric.” KCSB is 91.9 on your radio dial, but we’re also “dialed in!” We’re committed to staying in the know and bringing you everything you need to know about music, sports, history, and news. It’s our job to be tuned into the world around us and report back live on the air, 24/7. So, dial in and support the station that supports you!

Donations of $25 for students and $50 for non-students will be eligible for thank you gifts.
