Amplify KXCI! Capital Campaign

Website-Amplify-LogoThank you so much for your consideration in support of our campaign to Amplify KXCI! Your commitment and generosity are appreciated. Together, we will carry on as a truly indispensable resource for the entire community.

KXCI Community Radio began as a vision shared by people who yearned to have a radio station that would share the great music and information missing in our community. That dream came to fruition through the tireless efforts of passionate community members coming together and in December 1983 KXCI began its first legendary broadcast of the history of sound. Since 1983, KXCI Community Radio has been a vital part of the fabric of Southern Arizona. Nearly 2,800 members make financial contributions to our annual budget and 30,000 listeners tune in each week! We started the Amplify KXCI campaign in November 2012 to be able to serve more listeners with a higher level of service.

 As of April 16, 2015  we have raised more than $650,000 towards our goal of $750,000 from our Board, Staff, Campaign Committee and key community investors like you. This has allowed us to order and install our new auxiliary transmitter and antenna to expand our signal area and strength- although we admittedly still have more work to do to better synchronize our two transmitters

To build upon our expanded signal, we now focus on advancing our capacity  to improve KXCI’s sound quality and broadcast chain integrity through updates to current technology in our physical studios which is long overdue. We also intend to make necessary building improvements which will protect our cultural, material and human assets. We plan to install a new roof, efficient heating/cooling, and create a space which is greener and more accessible while retaining its historic character.

We are working now to raise the necessary funds to move the campaign forward because we are dedicated to our long term sustainability so that we can reach and serve more of Tucson and Southern Arizona.

With our expanded capacity, we look forward to strengthening our existing community relationships and cultivating exciting new partnerships so that we can grow together to help preserve Tucson and Southern Arizona’s unique heritage and cultural treasures.

Thank you again! If you have any questions about the Amplify KXCI! campaign please do not hesitate to call our Community Engagement/Development Director  Amanda Shauger at 520-623-1000 x 17 or

Amplify logoWe are honored to serve as Honorary Chairs of the Amplify KXCI Capital Campaign. It is a privilege to support our community radio station – the station that has provided so much to support so many for three decades.

For many years the KXCI Board of Directors and many KXCI members have worked toward the vision of signal expansion. This would reach those areas currently not served (the Catalina Foothills, parts of Marana and Oro Valley) and enhance the signal in areas currently served. This would in turn mean more of the community can be engaged with our local musicians, nonprofits and events.

We invite you and your family to become involved. When you consider a gift, please think of the numerous contributions KXCI Community Radio makes to the quality of life in Southern Arizona and give generously to ensure KXCI’s improvement and continued good health. Thank you for your commitment to Southern Arizona’s community radio.

Joey & Nova Burns, Honorary Co-Chairs
