Development Department Update

Hi-I just wanted to touch base and give a little update from the development department. First off in case you don't know, I'm Sun Lee, KBOO's Interim Development Director. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have questions or please comment on my blog and I'll respond.

This is the newest department at KBOO and I am working on making it a successful one. My job is to put together new revenue streams for the station as well as doing outreach into communities and co-sponsoring events. This fiscal year we are up $11,000 from last year. Thank you for all your support at our events so far and stay tuned for more exciting things.

KBOO Raises Over $10,000 for Haiti

On February 18th, 2010, KBOO Community Radio in Portland, OR dedicated 13 hours of airtime to fundraise for Haiti relief efforts, due to a rare FCC waiver that allowed us to fundraise for organizations on-air. The last time the FCC allowed this was after Hurricane Katrina, when KBOO also raised funds on-air. 100% of the money raised during this time on-air and on-line is being contributed to four Haitian-led organizations.

Konbit pou Aiti (Working together for Haiti) - Working together for Haiti is a Haitian-American not-for-profit organization focused on building sustainable livelihoods for the communities in southeast Haiti (Creole name is Konbit pou Aiti). 

Thanks for helping Haiti

I wanted to say thank you to all those that contributed during our Haiti fundraiser yeseterday. It is a wonderful feeling to know that we can count on the KBOO community to step up and support Haiti in it's time of need. You helped raise $10,000 that will go to our four charities. I am proud to be a part of this organization and proud of our listeners.
