Where is this donation going?

GIVING TUESDAY fundraising efforts support our capacity to provide emergency information and services to the community.

We stay on the air during storms and blackouts due to our backup power sources.

This includes:

Generators!
We have two generators. A brand new Generac generator at our transmitter site on Megler mountain,
as well as our backup generator here at the Tillicum House studios. We exercise them weekly and tune them up once a year.
Please help us pay for a tune-up!

Propane!
Your donation helps us keep our propane tanks full and ready for long-term outages. We have 3 tanks in total, two at the Tillicum House and one on Megler Mountain.
Please help us fill our tanks with propane, and keep them full!

UPS’s
Our broadcast gear stays on long enough for the generators to kick on thanks to UPS’s. That stands for “Uninterruptible Power Supply”. There are basically a power strip with 4 large batteries inside that will keep our mixers, cd players, computers etc. turned on long enough for the generators to fire up.
These batteries work very hard and need to be replaced regularly. We use several dozen of them, and they are not cheap!
Please help us keep our battery back ups fresh and charged!

General Preparedness
Flood lights, flash lights, first-aid kits, bulbs, batteries, etc.

Your GIVING TUESDAY donation helps us prepare for the unexpected. Just last year we had to replace the sidewalk on 14th Street which just about emptied our contingency savings account. Please help us replenish our saving and be prepared for contingencies!

Thank you for supporting non-profits like ours on this GIVING TUESDAY!
