We have met our $50,000 goal! Thanks to everyone that contributed to our Fall Fund Drive. Many of you love the new One Day Drive – and we do, too – it saves the station time and money, and allows staff and volunteers to spend more time making radio and less time fundraising! Because the drive is only one day long, we miss some folks that want to help, so it can take a little longer to reach the goal, but that’s ok, so long as we get there! If we missed you on this one day drive, please support our effort to streamline our fund drives by contributing now at kcaw.org. Thank you!
We Made It! Thank You!

Because of higher drinking water standards, Sitka has rented a temporary filtration plant -- at a cost of about $1-million per month. more
