Pledge Your Support For Great Radio In Winnipeg!
on October 10,2017 by jared

Since returning to Winnipeg's airwaves in 1998, UMFM has been providing a diverse range of music and talk programming to Winnipeg. As with any organization, we have changed and evolved over the years but at its core, UMFM has maintained a mandate to provide our listeners a forum for music and voices that may otherwise go unheard.

Since 1998, the station's core funding has been fairly steady with student fees and a small amount of advertising revenue ensuring UMFM could continue operating year in and year out. However, some of the costs associated with running a radio station outpace core funding and so we raise funds through an annual funding drive that helps pay for some of our fixed costs including radio tower rent, monthly technical support and computer network maintenance and utilities. Additionally we direct these funds toward larger, exciting capital projects.

Pledge-O-Rama 2017 is right around the corner, and this year, 100% of funds raised during Pledge-O-Rama will go towards 4 key projects: building a new, digitizing our music library, replacing our core broadcast computers and installing new UMFM listening hotspots on the U of M Campus!

All pledges, big or small make a difference!  You can pre-pledge now by visiting our website and clicking on the donate link, or you can call us at 204-474-6610 starting October 13th at 6:30, and running until 8PM on October 20th - please dig deep and donate generously!

Plainly stated, during Pledge-O-Rama this year, our goal is to raise is $34,000.  Starting at 6:30PM on October 13th and running through to 8PM on October 20th, all of our hardworking showhosts and volunteers will be hitting the airwaves and taking your calls in in an effort to reach our goal. $34,000 isn't an arbitrary number to us, it represents roughly 15% of our operating budget and would go a long want towards assisting in the day to day maintenance and operation of UMFM. 

After Pledge-O-Rama kicks off, we'll be answering those phones daily from 6AM until 3AM.  However, if you miss during our prime pledge hours, you can just leave us a message at 204-474-6610 or drop us a line at and one of our Smooth Phone Operators will get back to you ASAP!  Or if you want to come down to the station during Pledge-O-Rama to pledge your support in person, we'd love to see you.

Once again, we’ve got fantastic limited-edition merch or tax receipts to reward you for your donation to the station!  Plus, individual shows are cooking up some great surprise rewards for their listeners so donate or give us a call during Pledge-O-Rama.

For more information visit our Pledge-O-Rama page and please help UMFM continue to provide a home for alternative voices, inquisitive minds and adventurous ears!

Half Pints Prize Packages

Once again, thanks to the generous support of the folks who make great beer over at Half Pints Brewing Co., we've got some killer prizes for giveaway to all our donors.

We've got a daily draw for a package that includes a pint glass, a toque or hoodie (supplies limited), coasters, stickers, buttons and best of all your very own Half Pints growler that you can head on down to 550 Roseberry and fill with some Half Pints goodness at their filling station for every donor who pledges $75 or more, that's EIGHT prize packages in all!!!
PLUS every donation over $75 will also be entered in the grand prize draw that includes a private brewery tour and tasting for you and up to 20 friends after which you'll leave with a gift cerfiticate good for a keg of your choice of one of Half Pints tasty wares.

Golden Ticket Draws

Another key returnee to Pledge-O-Rama is the amazing prize we call the Golden Ticket! Everyone who pledges $150 win gain one entry into our draw to win one of eight (!!!) prizes that will allow you and a guest to attend as many shows at the Park Theatre, the West End Cultural Centre, the Pyramid Cabaret, the Good Will Social Club and the Handsome Daughter as you want over the next year.  In addition, our festival friends are getting in on the act as well! Jazz Winnipeg are offering up a golden ticket to the 2018 TD Jazz Winnipeg Festival, which will allow you and a guest to attend every show that the festival throws at you next June and The Winnipeg Folk Festival are offering up 2 full weekend passes with camping passes for the 2018 festival, which takes place over 4 beautiful days next July in Bird's Hill Park!

So yeah, you read that right - you and a guest can get into a years' worth of shows at five of the best venues in town. Local acts, touring bands, punk, hip-hop, bluegrass - you name it, if it's on the Upcoming Shows calendar (*with some exceptions) at the Park Theatre, the West End Cultural Centre, the Pyramid Cabaret, the Good Will Social Club and the Handsome Daughter - you and a guest can waltz right in with this special pass that you can only get if you pledge starting at $150 or more during Pledge-O-Rama. And this is in addition to the tax receipt or package of incentives we're already giving out for pledges.

Incentive Levels

Finally, all of our supporters will get a big THANK YOU and the satisfaction of knowing that they have supported something as worthwhile as UMFM. However, there are a few extra tokens of our appreciation available. Of course, all pledges, big or small will make a difference! We plan to shower gifts on everyone who takes the time to call us and show us their support by donating to UMFM. Remember, plegees can chose between a tax receipt or the one of these great incentive packages, corresponding with the amount donated:

Here's a complete list of our great incentive packages, tax receipts are also available:

Please be aware that we cannot set aside specific t-shirt sizes during Pledge-O-Rama. All of our shirts will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

Pre-pledge to UMFM and not only we will guarantee you your desired shirt size, but one of our fine hosts will deliver it to your door or your mailbox! 

We're pretty easy going folks at UMFM, always willing to listen to offers on putting together your own custom incentive package, provided you've pledged at least $101.50!
