The Cortes Community Radio Society would like to correct a couple of “FACTS” as presented by The Community Coalition Against A Service Hall Tax. The CCRS is not a private enterprise, we are a Registered Non-Profit Society founded to provide a service to the Cortes Community.
The CCRS operates on a less then $10,000 a year budget. At this time roughly 30% of our annual budget goes to rent, maintenance and fees to the Manson’s Hall. A dedicated handful of volunteers raise approx. $5,000 in event based fundraising. The rest of budget comes in
sponsorships, memberships, donations, Grants in Aid and private foundation grants. Anyone interested in our annual financial reports just needs to attend our AGM or ask a Board member. No one from the CCASHT has done this. Once again, we would like to thank the Cortes Community for your continued support and participation in the Cortes Island community radio station.
