Steven Grady's Fundraising Page



Hi there!

Thank you so much for viewing my CHIRPradio Fall 2017 Fundraising page!

This is a very exciting time for me as I've just become a sub DJ on the station. More importantly, we are very excited to announce, after many years of preparation and anticipation, the launch of our brand new terrestrial radio frequency, 107.1 FM! Finally, beginning Saturday, October 21, 2017, at 12:00 noon, at last you will be able to hear CHIRPradio on your FM dial in addition to off the Internet (as has been the case now since 2010).

Getting to this point has been a labour of love for many of us volunteers at CHIRP, the vast majority who have served much longer than I. I am humbled to jump on board to satisfy a lifelong passion of spinning records at such a momentous time for the station.

Please note that because this station relies significantly on the generosity donations from friends such as yourselves, and especially now to defray the cost of the purchase and construction of the new transmitter which will be airing CHIRPradio on 107.1 FM, we really could use your financial support.

My goal for this fundraising drive is $300.  If you would be so kind and generous to donate an amount (ANY amount is greatly appreciated) to CHIRPradio, I and everyone at CHIRPradio would be very gracious.  

PLUS...Everyone who gives during the course of this drive will receive an automatic entry into a drawing for a Downtown Weekend Out: a two-night stay in an exclusive loft room at the brand new Ace Hotel, breakfast included, and dinner at City Mouse!

In order to get credit to meet my goal, please mention my name in the field, "TELL US HOW YOU HEARD ABOUT CHIRP!"

Thanks so much for your donation and enjoy and on 107.1 FM beginning Saturday, October 21 at noon!
