3CR Community Radio

Community Radio Federations Donations Fund

3CR Community Radio provides a media space enabling progressive communities to voice ideas and build their power to create social change
2021 marks 45 years on the airwaves for 3CR—an incredible achievement and a testament to the thousands of volunteer hours and station supporters who have given to the station over the decades.
Increasingly, people are recognising the pitfalls and failings of corporate-owned media platforms that lack ethics or social purpose while they simultaneously manipulate, surveil and exploit communities.
Within this context, the work of community radio remains absolutely essential as we deliver a not-for-profit media model that champions communities expressing themselves and determining their own futures. History tells us that change is determined by political struggle.
3CR is part of that struggle—critiquing existing structures, amplifying new voices and visions and we need your help to keep going.
We rely on our listeners and supporters to financially keep the station on air.

What impact your donation can make:

  • $50 subsidises one volunteer programmer’s access to training in creating radio independent radio
  • $100 pays for one hour of your favourite show on air, supporting your programming passions.
  • $200 provides one month’s internet access so you can listen online to podcasts and on demand
