The KISS FM Community Airtime Award is granted semi-annually, where KISS FM – In partnership with Lake City Casino and Vernon Dodge – will grant a non profit group or charitable organization with an advertising grant of $35,000, to be used over a 6-month period.
“Non-profit groups are some of the hardest working people in the world – and unfortunately most groups don’t have the funding to ‘get the word out’, or to launch a fundraising campaign as almost all funds go to operating costs” says Bryan Ford, General Sales Manager of 107.5 KISS FM. “They are just like most other businesses… they have goals and aspirations for their organization, and our hope is that the Community Airtime Award will help these organizations take things to the next level”.
“We take great pride in connecting our listeners with local organizations, and the Community Airtime Award will do that for 2 non-profit groups a year” says Shawn McCleary, Program Director for 107.5 KISS FM.
The first recipient of the KISS FM Community Airtime Award is the North Okanagan Neurological Association or NONA Child Development Centre.
