Make a donation!

Keep CHLY 101.7FM on-air and online by sustaining it with a recurring donation, or one time donation. We have great incentives to make it worth your while too.

What does my donation do?

Your donation pays for the day-to-day costs of keeping CHLY operating, improvements to the station and studio, as well as funding our on and off air projects. Without your donation, CHLY would not be possible no matter how hard our volunteers worked. 

Until the membership policy changes, your donation does NOT grant you membership. To become a member, please click here.

What does my donation get me?

Your donation gets you access to some nice CHLY swag, as well as entries into our Fund Drive prize draw. If you care not for material possessions, you can decline the incentive swag or prize draw, comfortable in the knowledge that all your donation dollars go towards supporting our station and mission.
