donate!   raffle!   events!   music!

From October 15th to 28th, CJLO 1690AM is once again hosting our annual Funding Drive! This year’s drive is a special one, as the station turns 25 years old. By hosting a Funding Drive, we don’t only get the opportunity to bring funds into the station, but we also get to spend this time highlighting the incredible programming and DJs we’ve had over this past quarter century!

There are two ways to donate: you can donate to receive gifts, or you can donate to receive a charitable gift certificate!


Also, every person who donates to CJLO will be entered into a raffle, to be drawn once the Funding Drive is over. For every $5 donated, one ballot will be placed in the raffle. For example, $50 donated will equal 10 entries.

We have several prizes from our incredible sponsors this year, which includes:

$250 train voucher from ViaRail

VIP pass to RIDM, worth $150

2 x $100 gift certificates to Crossover Comics

2 x $100 gift certificates to Poulet Rouge
