RTRFM week-long Donor Drive seeks your support now

Fundraising

Perth community radio station RTRFM is holding a week-long Donor Drive, concluding at 9am on Friday 12 June.

The 2015 Donor Drive will fund the renovation of the station’s well-worn kitchen and green room facilities, creating a comfortable and inviting space for presenters, volunteers, staff and station guests. The fundraising target is only $5,000 and the renovation project is expected to take 1-3 months to complete.

Funds raised will allow RTRFM to install more storage and bench space, purchase some new furniture and kitchen fittings, get Wi-Fi and give the whole room a lick of paint – and perhaps even splurge on a commissioned mural by a local visual artist!

RTRFM currently has over 250 volunteer presenters, approximately 50 office volunteers and nine staff members – plus countless guests who appear on air daily – all of whom use the station’s existing kitchen and green room facilities.

Donor Drives are undertaken intermittently at RTRFM to raise funds for a specific infrastructure project that the station would not otherwise be able to afford. The station’s last Donor Drive in June 2013 raised just over $10,000 for the installation of solar panels, which are being installed over the next 8-12 weeks at RTRFM’s Mount Lawley premises.

The 2015 Donor Drive and renovation project will make a significant difference to the lives of the staff and volunteers that are the heart of RTRFM. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible, and these can be made online at rtrfm.com.au, in person at Level 1, 642 Beaufort Street Mount Lawley, or by calling (08) 9260 9200.

Plus, everyone that donates $25 or more will automatically go into the draw to win a party in your kitchen, with local band Kitchen People, a mystery RTRFM DJ and some tasty beverages!
