Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

CRMK is Milton Keynes'' oldest community radio station, formed in 1979.
Originally CRMK stood for Cable Radio Milton Keynes - the station's broadcasting medium was literally built into the fabric of the city via a network of underground cables - cutting edge stuff for the 80's!
Over the past 38 years, the station, which is run by volunteers, has broadcast a huge range of programmes from local interest, religion and arts to shows covering almost every style of music.
Nowadays CRMK broadcasts via the internet, and has been through a series of studio moves. But recently the dedicated group of broadcasters found their forever home - a disused former toilet block.
The small but perfectly formed building has acquired a lease and planning permission, so with the paperwork in place, our DJ's have used their other talents in building, plumbing, weeding etc to start the transformation from "restroom" into a facility which will benefit the whole community.
The windows and one of the doors have been bricked up, the roof has been mended, and the interior has been cleared, ready for new partitions, plastering and bringing in the radio equipment.
At this time we particularly need to raise funds for a security door and electronic key fobs.
All money raised will go towards launching the CRMK studio in its new home so that you can listen to the shows or get involved in this community station, sharing your favourite music and interests locally and worldwide!
The radio station already has a brand new website at crmk.co.uk

Huge thanks to all supporters of CRMK. Every penny is going towards the studio materials and equipment - we are on track to go live within the next few months. And as promised, when the studio has finished its conversion from a former toilet block, every donor will have their name written on the CRMK Donor Wall. Keep up-to-date on our progress via the website crmk.co.uk Pauline

About the fundraiser
Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
My husband is a DJ who has been with CRMK for 25 years. I have seen the determination of the team of presenters to give the radio station a permanent home so that it can be relaunched as a community resource. I also helped pull the huge ivy off the walls!
