As we all know, the annual fund raising drive is underway. I just finished making my donation and I want to encourage everyone who loves this site to have a part! If we all do a little, it will be very easy to reach the goal!

Get on board! And thanks to everyone for your support of Celtic Radio!

Have a great day!

PS - If you donate, add your post to this thread and let's see how many donors we get.

Thank you Haynes!

We are off to a slow start this year in getting the fund raising page started, but I see that we already have 6 donations which is great. It really does not take that all many people to make our goal and anything above our goal will also help us on the hardware end as we are always trying to figure out how to have the site run more stable and faster.

So much appreciated to everyone that helps run this site and that goes to all of our founders too that help us meet our monthly expenses.

You can add me to the list of doners! This is the best place for everything Celtic!

Well, if you have not heard our yearly fund raising drive has started in earnest. Celtic Radio has a lot hanging on this fund raising event. The yearly fees to broadcast are very expensive, and the ability to generate funding for Celtic Music is not that great compared to other music genres.

But that is why it is so important that all of our music channels can stay online and available for free to introduce new people to the genre. Sure, we could just stream our channels to only paid listeners, but would we be doing a service to Celtic music and musicians by not introducing new people to the music and Culture?

Every year we think for sure this will be our last year and we will not meet the goal and we will have to close down most of our channels. But every year you folks come through and for that we are very grateful.

Check out our Fund Raising Video to see what we are all about and if you enjoy the music, the website and the people on the website then visit our donation page:

http://donate.celticradio.net

We have a wonderful selection of donation package and thank you gifts.

As always, thanks for your support!

Feeling less stressed that we are more than 50% there. Our biggest fear each year is we would have to turn off some of those live365 streams which brings in a lot of new listeners.

We will start processing the donation gifts probably beginning next week. Will be assembling a crew here to do this assembly style! biggrin.gif

We are more than 50% there so thank you all very much!

Just a quick note that we have reworked the premium upgrade coupon that donations receive for $20 and over. It is much easier and there is now a separate page that allows for trouble free coupon upgrade.

A really great deal in our fund raising event is the Sacred Celtic Sites wall calendar. Embark on a magical journey through the Celtic landscape each month. For a $25 donation you receive the calendar and a coupon upgrade code for a Celtic Radio Premium account (a $20 value). So basically you get the calendar for $5!

Thanks again to everyone that is choosing to support our site this year. This is our once a year fund raising, so you will only hear about this in January of each year and then it is just musical enjoyment thereafter!.

Very much so, for some reason we always believe we will fall short - but the community really shows us their support during this time of year.

Plus we don't like to be in a constant funding raising mode like some other radio stations, would rather do it once a year so we can then focus on the website and broadcasts.

The fund raising over our goal will be going towards a much needed second backup device. Believe it or not 3 terabytes of backup storage is not enough to hold all of the files from our servers - we recently maxed out and had to remove some backup files from our workstation. So we will probably be purchasing a 2nd backup device that holds 4 terabytes of data and then 2 of our servers will have a dedicated backup device just in case!

Thanks to everyone that donated or that financially supports us to stay online. We expect in a few days to start assembling the thank you gifts and based on the number we have to send out it could be 1-2 weeks!
