Now we're almost 6 months into a new financial year, we have to do something about the dreaded 20/80 ratio... basically we have 80% of the funds needed until September 30 but we must bridge the missing 20% gap otherwise we'll record another loss for the year!

Popularity and Use are UP!

Compared to this exact time a year ago visitor sessions are up 3.4%, users are up 2.1%, pageviews are up 1.7% and new users are slightly down at 81% while 19% are returning to enjoy us again.

China now Visitor Source #5

People come visit us from over 100 countries and the top 5 are now New Zealand, Australia, USA, UK and China replacing India from a year ago.

Donations this time last year covered all our costs but this year we're running almost 20% less. Please help us find the $A2,322 we still need by September 30 and so we can continue bringing you more stories and free services.

93 Regular Donations of $25

Just 93 people of the thousands who visit here each month donating $25 each will bridge the gap. Will you please be one of those 93? We'll add you to the Supporter Roll of Honor and thousands of people will thank you for keeping the project on track!

The 2080 Campaign is now underway and your donation via our Paypal donate button will be acknowledged with thanks. All funds are used to meet our regular monthly overhead costs such as storage, utiliities and office service expenses. These are fixed for 5 years.

Our volunteers maintain the website, research and prepare the features and radio guides and continue their work on the new website and the Collective Access database projects for release later this year/early 2016. After more than 10 years we're still small and personal enough that each individual supporter is known by name!

You can make sure we continue keeping the radio memories safe..... thank you in advance for your donation to bridge the 2080 gap!

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
