Crowdfund UC Davis thanks all of the donors who gave to this important project in October. This campaign has closed, but you can still support us by making a donation.
Keep On-Campus Radio alive and support Independent Radio
KDVS is a student-run, freeform radio station that broadcasts music, talk shows, sports, and news to the greater Sacramento area from our Davis studio. We are proudly a part of the media units of ASUCD. We have been preparing to move to a different location on campus due to the demolition of Lower Freeborn Hall, which has housed our station since 1967. Our current home has met all our needs and more. It keeps our extensive record and music ephemera library preserved, spanning the generations of underground subgenres and progressive artistry.
While KDVS alumni have made their mark on the station, the station ebbs and flows with the times, yet still captures a familiar ethos established by its predecessors.
Our goal for a successful relocation is to support the creative endeavors of radio hosts, while maintaining the community engagement and alternative charm that makes KDVS unique. To make this vision a reality, the station depends on community support and donations. These contributions help us purchase essential radio equipment, such as headphones, microphones, turntable needles, and more.
Your gift will help facilitate KDVS’s move to a new home, allowing our students and community members alike to continue broadcasting and creating freely. Your gift will also enable staff to pursue exciting projects for KDVS, such as our ongoing archive plan, which strives to document and maintain the station’s rich history. With a new studio space, we will be able to undertake all this and more.
Please consider giving to KDVS to ensure the livelihood of broadcast media in our community.
