In-Kind Donations

JOY 94.9 must continually invest in new and upgraded studio, IT and broadcast transmission equipment. The station only has access to limited funds and depends on the generosity of its members and friends to fund some of the more costly items of expenditure. Some donate cash; others donate services, labour and professional services; or working IT or broadcasting components.

Key areas of expenditure for funds or in-kind service donations include:

  • maintenance of existing broadcasting technology
  • replacement of aging studio equipment
  • upgrading of broadcast facilities as technology advances
  • upgrading of supporting IT facilities (servers, digital storage medium, software, etc.)
  • continual upgrade of equipment in our Transmission chain and transmission site
  • training for new IT applications
  • preparation for digital broadcasting
  • support of corporate business systems

JOY relies on your support to survive. By your donation, you can help us to ensure that JOY continues to provide a diverse range of relevant programs, arts and culture, music, and news that connects, informs and entertains our community. If you would like to contribute towards our wishlist please contact
