Taunton’s 107.8 Tone FM is a community radio station licensed by Ofcom to serve Taunton and the surrounding areas and runs as a ‘not for profit’ business where everybody volunteers their time. As part of our license agreement, we are only allowed to raise a limited amount from commercial airtime & sponsorship and the rest of our income must be earned by way of grant funding, fund-raising events AND donations. Funding generated by Tone FM is simply invested back into the radio station, to help our volunteers learn real-world media skills and gain valuable experience in all areas of the business, from production, broadcasting, writing and interviewing, to administration and support roles. Your donation will go towards:
- Day to day running and premises costs
- The licenses that allow us to broadcast and play music on the radio
- Professional broadcast studio equipment and software systems
- Expenses which may be incurred by volunteers
- Investment into the training and development of volunteers
If you would like to make a donation, please use our secure on-line payment process below and of course, we will thank you for supporting us ON AIR!
