3CR Community Radio: Make Your Donation Political
In this federal election year, 3CR Community Radio will be asking you to make a political donation that matters. As the two major political parties slug it out – the choice is clear – a donation to 3CR is a vote for 3CR’s progressive alternative coverage of social, cultural and political issues.
Our broadcasting of diverse voices and programs is vital in the democratic process and a lifeline to communities excluded by the mainstream media. We are financially supported by the listening community who make donations at Radiothon – people like you.
The 3CR Radiothon runs from 3-16 June or click here to donate now!
