You know that JAZZ.FM91 broadcasts the music you love and the information you need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But did you know that JAZZ.FM91 is a registered charity, and does not receive any government funding to operate.

JAZZ.FM91 is independent, and not part of a media conglomerate. We run many essential community outreach programs to support emerging artists and local jazz legends, and to promote jazz among young people.

JAZZ.FM91 is a listener-supported station. Still, our donors account for only 2 per cent of our total listening audience. Become a donor today, and help keep jazz strong — on the air and in the community.
