Thank you for considering JOY to promote your cause!  There are different ways we can help you spread your message.

Community Service Announcement

JOY 94.9 is the diverse voice of the LGBTQIA+ community.

We are proud of the support we have given to not-for-profit groups via our community service announcement (CSA) program over many years. Our free CSA program is available to small/micro organisations providing free services catering to the LGBTQIA+ community that do not receive significant levels of government funding.

Note: Proof of not-for-profit status may be requested; JOY 94.9 reserves the right to decline an application for a free CSA.

If you are a medium or larger sized charitable organisation, please see our Organisation Membership and Sponsorship information to see how JOY can work with you to create a promotional campaign at an affordable price. 

Types of CSA

Option 1 – General CSA

Promotion of your community service / group. This is to help promote your organisation or services more generally.

An ongoing announcement for up to 12 months, we require at least 2 weeks notice to prepare the on-air schedule.


Option 2 – One-off community event CSA

A short term CSA for one-off events, scheduled over 3 weeks in the lead-up to event. We require 5 weeks notice prior to the event start date, so our volunteer producers have sufficient time to produce and record the audio announcement, so the on-air promotion may commence 3 weeks before the event.

We do our very best to find room for all CSA requests, however we can’t always accommodate all requests received.

You may also consider sending an email to as there may be scope for promoting your event/service via interview on a JOY  program.

Discounted not-for-profit sponsorship advertising packages are available for those who fall outside the above guidelines and you still want to have your message heard on JOY, whilst financially supporting the work that we do. Learn more about sponsoring JOY here.

Finally, JOY 94.9 offers distribution of a CSA produced at JOY to stations across Victoria or Australia. If you wish to know more about this production service, let us know at the time of submitting your CSA application.
