Fundraising Update

We still need to raise $31,221 this month (or $2,840 a day for the next 11 days) to meet our monthly budget.

2016 Music Royalty Increase

For 2016, music royalties are increasing drastically. We will need to raise at least $10,000 a month more to pay them. And because the way they're calculated, we don't know exactly what they're going to be until the end of each month, and could be as high as $20,000 a month more than we pay now (a 10x increase).

It's a challenge to run a commercial-free, listener supported radio station in today's economic environment. It seems like we're always begging you for money, and that's because we have to: we rely entirely on you to keep us on the air. So please, make the effort to support SomaFM. We'll be there for you, but we need your financial help.

We hope that our music provides you with enjoyment, and we hope you'll offer a little something back our way to finance our continued operation.

To meet our budget, we need to raise $2,840 a day for the next 11 days. So far today we've raised $733, and for the month $23,778. We still are trying to raise $31,221 more by the end of the month.
