You can support KUGR! Learn how!
The Stowell Excellence Fund for KUGR is an endowment fund that directly helps KUGR Cougar College Radio in updating aging equipment and traveling to major sporting events. Most recently, we sent a student-broadcaster to cover the WSU Women’s Soccer team’s trip through the 2019 NCAA tournament, and College Cup.
While KUGR receives funds from ASWSU’s financial committee, over half of that budget goes towards equipment upgrades and licensing of software. This leaves KUGR at a disadvantage for traveling to events – sports and music. That’s where alumni support comes into play.
While KUGR is not in any trouble financially whatsoever, your financial support helps future broadcasters expand their opportunities. Click here to support.
