CIOE-97.5 FM Needs Your Support
Jim Robson, Chairman

 I take great pride in the more than 97.5 hours of East Coast Music played along with our original musical and spoken-word programs produced weekly by our talented team of community volunteers in their efforts to inform, educate, and entertain listeners of all ages throughout the HRM and beyond.

CIOE, as a not-for-profit community radio station, is dependent on a variety of revenue streams including local advertising, semi-annual  radio-thons, sponsorships, and grants. Another key financial component that is vital to CIOE in continuing and enhancing its local community programming initiatives is public donations.

As a CIOE listener, you can play an important role in supporting and maintaining this unique, one-of-a-kind local community radio station by personally donating to the station. You can make a secure donation online through the button below, either through a one time gift of any amount, or pledge an affordable amount each month over a period of one year or more on your credit card.

It is through your generosity and support that CIOE-97.5 FM will continue its invaluable local broadcasting service throughout HRM and discover and promote East Coast artists and performers by giving them the on-air exposure they deserve.
