Why Radio Heritage Foundation needs your donations
……….Every year we save more collections of Pacific wide radio
memorabilia from the trash can or the fireplace, find more forgotten
hours of audio, search out and rescue old magazines, books and
memorabilia that hold treasures of their time, save oral histories
and stories from radio pioneers, research historic features and
articles and bring you a taste of what’s in our collections for free
at our global website www.radioheritage.net……..
………..We’re a registered non-profit organization and our total
income in 2008-2009 was just US$6300. This covers only a small
proportion of our operational costs [such as office overheads, power,
broadband, consumables, travel etc] and we can’t afford to pay wages
so our full time volunteers have mortgaged their own home to
underwrite operational costs and their living expenses for 5
……….. That’s why your financial support, partnerships and
volunteer time is so important to us, because what you see at
www.radioheritage.net is only the tip of an iceberg of Pacific wide
heritage you’re entitled to share. We’re regulated by the Charities
Commission in New Zealand with whom we file annual and financial
reports although we operate globally.
