Capital Campaign

Securing Our Future Capital Campaign  

A Once-in-a-Generation Opportunity

This is a very exciting time for KSUT Public Radio and for our community. For the first time in our 42-year history, KSUT is embarking on a three-phased capital campaign. Phase 1 consists of renovating an existing building in Ignacio to create our new home, named the Eddie Box Jr. Media Center; Phase II will establish a Local News and Public Affairs Tribal Media and Training Program; and Phase III will establish the Carlos Sena Legacy Fund, an endowment program to ensure KSUT remains strong and relevant for another 42 years and beyond. To date, we have raised over $4.0 million toward the goal of $5.5 million for our multi-phased capital campaign.

The Eddie Box Jr. Media Center and the $1 Million Matching Challenge

Through the generosity of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, we have been presented with the opportunity to repurpose a 5,000 sq. ft. building a few hundred feet from our current location in Ignacio. The new building will nearly quadruple our available space and will finally support the production, broadcasting, performance, and work spaces we have sorely needed for many years.

In addition to rent-free use of this building, Tribal Council has offered $1 million in matching funds to renovate the building on the condition that we raise an equal sum in community support. We are over half-way toward that goal and need to raise an additional $400,000 in new gifts and pledges by October 1 of this year. This is an all-or-nothing extraordinary opportunity for KSUT and our region!

We turn to you: Help us Meet the $1 Million Match

KSUT is now at a crossroads where we must invest in our infrastructure and equipment to remain strong, viable and relevant. We turn to you at this critical time for your additional support of KSUT’s Securing Our Future Capital Campaign. Please consider making an additional capital gift today.

The production and presentation of quality, in-depth and relevant regional news and public affairs programming is an important need in the Four Corners region. But, providing for this is a formidable task.

Capital Campaign Phase III: Carlos Sena Legacy Fund

Securing the Future of KSUT

In a climate where national media conglomerates have purchased many locally owned radio stations, the role of an independent public radio station such as KSUT is of critical importance to small and rural communities. Combined with threats to funding for public broadcasting and an unstable economic environment, it is vital that KSUT plan for its future through the creation of the Carlos Sena Legacy Fund.
