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.


Give Back and We’ll Gift Back!

Tickets, albums, books, apparel, hand-made items and more will be available as thank you gifts to our donors. The minimum donation to qualify for a thank-you gift is $25 for students and $50 for non-students.

Some of the premiums available this year include:

– Event tickets such as Noname @ The Fremont Theater (SLO), Annie Leibovitz @ The Arlington etc..

– Over 300 different Vinyl, CDs, and tapes from artists such as Neutral Milk Hotel, Toro y MoiPalmJeff Rosenstock etc.. and labels such as Sub PopBurgerANTIMatador & more!

– Gift certificates to local businesses such as Woodstock’sSpudnutsSanta Barbara Museum of Natural HistorySanta Barbara Winery & more!
