FM-Phasis 2023 was an overwhelming success! With the gracious support of the Community (and beyond), we have exceeded our fundraising goal with $76,782.18 pledged. Simply incredible!

We are SO thankful for everyone who supported us during our annual fundraising drive. Whether it be via a donation or if you helped spread the word, it does NOT go unnoticed. 

We would also like to take a moment to thank all of the local businesses that donated prizes to help sweeten the deal for some lucky FM-Phasis donors, Gabrielle Giroux for the amazing "Radio Re-Wired" graphic design, and CFCR volunteer hosts for keeping the station alive and on-air throughout the year. 

We will continue to work hard to bring you top-quality, volunteer-powered radio here in Saskatoon. Thank you - times a zillion!


CFCR is proud to present the FM-Phasis fundraising drive for 2023 - "Radio Re-Wired" taking place from Saturday, September 16th to Friday, September 29th, 2023. This year marks our 32nd year of volunteer broadcasting at 90.5FM in Saskatoon! 

FM-Phasis is essential to CFCR’s existence and accounts for 15-20% of our annual operating budget. We are hopeful with the support of the Community that we can reach a goal of $75,000 this year.

The funds raised during past FM-Phasis campaigns have been directed towards continued improvements and upgrades for the station, including New Studio Equipment (we purchased a new Board for our On-Air Studio in 2021!), Remote Recording Equipment (ie: USB Microphones, etc), Production Studio Upgrades, Transmitter Upgrades, Security System, Webcasting and the CFCR Mobile App. 

One of the current projects we are working hard on is developing an on-demand Public Archive of our content, and upgrading our Computer/Server System to better Archiving and Digitization capabilities for the future.
The funds raised from the “Radio Re-Wired” FM-Phasis campaign will go towards:
- Developing an On-Demand Public Archive of our content
- Working towards moving the station to a more accessible space
- Upgrading our Computer/Server System 
- New Production Studio Equipment 
- New On-Air Studio Equipment 
- And so much more
