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
For nearly 45 years 3CR has fought for change—through our program content we advocate and agitate for social and political justice, and through our organisational model we represent how radical, independent media can give power to communities.
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.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have already seen the tremendous response of local communities supporting each other, it’s being called a new kindness pandemic, but supporters of 3CR already know the transformative power of community action for a better world. With your help we are confident we can weather these hard times and continue to be Melbourne’s radical, independent and community-owned broadcaster.
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
