As students of The University of Tennessee Knoxville with a limited time to raise money for WUTK we have set a realistic expectation of raising $1,450 for our organization. This money will be put toward licensing for the on- air operating systems software. We feel this attainable with our hard work, marketing skills, and WUTK’s proven credibility to the Knoxville audience.
Who We Are
WUTK is a non-commercial radio station in Knoxville, Tennessee on 90.3 FM. The radio station is owned and located by The University of Tennessee in Andy Holt Tower. Despite this, WUTK depends on generous donations by fans and supporters to keep the radio station alive because the University of Tennessee provides the inclined donations of space and electricity; along with some equipment donations, provides no direct funding for operating costs. WUTK is unique to Knoxville because it provides the city with new, local, and independent music.
We are a group of students from UT who love and listen to WUTK and would love to give back to the radio station. Maintaining a radio station is a very expensive endeavor, especially if the radio station is non-profit, which is held to stringent FCC regulations that at times can hinder promotions. With your help, we can help give WUTK the money it deserves so the radio station can keep up the great things it is doing.
What We Need
We are looking to raise $1,450 for the organization to help pay licensing fees for the station’s on-air programming systems such as Maestro, Natural Log, and Selector. Funding to keep the on-air systems operational is vital to the organization, as all their funding comes primarily from donations.
How it Helps
Any contribution made to this organization is vital to WUTK and the radio community as a whole. This outlet is extremely important for any up and coming artist from the Knoxville area and is very popular around campus. Your money will be put towards licensing fees for on-air programs, which allow for roughly 100 students and volunteers each semester to get the real world experience of being on air. Every contribution counts!
