Special Projects List

Special projects include equipment & software purchases that the station would like to acquire this year, and have not been included in the operating budget. The operating budget for equipment is minimal and usually is saved for smaller expenses and emergencies. Special projects are funded by members, foundations, and on occasion, community partners. If you are interested in helping support the following purchases, please contact Joe Garcia at 559-275-0764 x 15 or via email at jgarcia@kvpr.org.



Most of these 2015 special projects are dedicated to equipment and systems for the new facility. The station anticipates groundbreaking in early 2015 and would like to secure funding for many of these projects. Gifts that partially or fully fund a project are welcome. Thank you for your interest and consideration.
