Be the Difference

CKUA is made possible by YOU!

As a donor-supported radio station, CKUA can only exist when our listeners choose to donate. We are fundraising right now because 70% of the CKUA operational budget is funded through donations by listeners just like you. Today, we are asking you to give, so you can directly make a difference in the life of musicians, in the musical discovery our hosts provide through their curated programming, and in the community you make better by supporting music, arts, and culture.
