The incredible collective efforts of our community of volunteers meant that our February 2023 fundraiser raised £22,500. Since then, we’ve raised a further £15,000 in donations. However as the cost of living rises, so does the cost of running our charity, particularly at a time when Resonance needs to rapidly relocate its premises and deliver the next three years of activity. If Resonance cannot raise further funds before the end of the 2023, its future is at risk.
Raising a total of £100,000 before the end of 2023 would secure Resonance’s future for at least another year and enable us to:
Complete our relocation to our new, larger studio space near to Elephant & Castle, SE1.
Stay ad-free and independent and support the production of 12+ hours per day of original “industry-leading” audio content across Resonance FM and Resonance EXTRA - broadcast day and night to our 1.8 million + listeners.
Keep platforming our broadcasters as well as other emerging producers, musicians, artists, engineers, as well as guests, and of course - our listeners.
Keep rapidly-growing global experimental audio channel Resonance EXTRA on DAB in Brighton & Hove, Cambridge, Norwich and Greater London and online worldwide.
Preserve the more than 34,000 broadcasts archived on our Mixcloud pages, a nationally-important historical archive and a vital cultural resource.
Help maintain a bastion of independent media and a “thrillingly unpredictable racket” (Robin Ince, The Big Issue), free from outside interference and commercial influence, on DAB Digital Radio and FM - for many years to come!
With three years Arts Council England funding secure until 2026, Resonance plans to hit the ground running and raise £100,000 in 2023 to support our activities over the next three years.
To achieve that, monthly donations will be critical. Not only can monthly giving be more convenient for supporters, it also smooths our cash flow, allows us to budget more accurately and, critically, allows us to do better work overall, over a longer period, to support the Resonance community.
If you haven’t already joined us, please consider becoming a supporter with a monthly donation - starting at just £3 - today.
