The A-Infos Radio Project was formed in 1996 by grassroots broadcasters, free radio journalists and cyber-activists to provide ourselves with the means to share our radio programs via the Internet. To our knowledge, the A-Infos Radio Project was the first grassroots media project of it's kind on the internet. Our goal is to support and expand the movement for democratic communications worldwide. We exist to be an alternative to the corporate and government media which do not serve struggles for liberty, justice and peace, nor enable the free expression of creativity. The archived material is available to anyone who wants it free of charge. We welcome submissions from all stations and independent contributors in the service of these goals.
As many people know, the radio project has had some performance issues due to a dearth of funding, which has forced us to curtail our bandwidth.
The A-Infos Radio project has always been a completely unpaid three person collective. As time has gone on, we've aquired a variety of responsibilites that have prevented us from effectively fundraising the the radio project and over the years some of our regular donors have stopped giving, for whatever reason.
We want to keep the project going strong, but we don't have the time to constantly ask for money. So this solution seemed like the most effective course of action. If we can raise this money, it will allow the project to forge ahead free of any pressures for funding for the next 5 years. And five years will give us enough time to build up more effective funding for the following 5 years.
What We Need & What You Get
We need $50,000 to fund the radio project's bandwidth and hardare costs for the next 5 years. What you get is a reliable service for disseminating grassroots audio content.
