KKFI Community Newsletter
Welcome to the MidCoastal!
Hello everyone,

These are trying times indeed. I would like to begin with a message, so that it is clear where KKFI stands... United.

"We here at KKFI 90.1 FM want all to know we stand together with our Black community in solidarity in support against racial violence and injustice. No one should continue to remain silent in regards to the racial violence and oppression the Black community has faced. We urge our community to educate and join us into actions against the unspeakable treatment our Black community has endured for far too long. We encourage your participation and involvement for us to stand in unity." ~ KKFI Board of Directors

Heavy times indeed, but if there is one silver lining it is that KKFI has hired Darryl Oliver as our Volunteer Coordinator! I am so excited to announce this as he is thrown straight into the Spring Fund Drive. He has hit the ground running with Ebony Johnson right by his side showing him the ropes.

We are also proud to announce our Spring 2020 Fund Drive will include some new gifts including the Day Sponsorship. If you giving exceeds $1200 annually, which is an average of $100 monthly, we will work with you to choose a specific day of the year that you sponsor. We will work with you to record a 30 second spot to celebrate your day and share it several times a day. We are also happy to share our new online gift shop. The KKFI Prize Closet is ready for you to choose form many gifts.

We know that giving is not an option for everyone right now, but if it is for you then we would be honored if you considered a gift to your community radio station.

Bill Sundahl,
Your friendly neighborhood Development Director. Stay Safe.
