Access Sacramento could not be prouder of the significant impact it has on bringing our area's diversity of voices onto cable television and radio. With 29 years in the community, we are recognized for the significant in-kind donations we make to area non-profits through our Hometown TV and Game of the Week broadcasts. We were recognized in 2014 by the National Association of Community Arts Centers as the only representative west of the Mississippi and each year we win several Western Access Video Excellence (WAVE) awards for providing the best community access television productions across six western states.
Our top needs:
- Funding: Program - Sustainable support for non-commercial community radio KUBU-LP 96.5 FM at $8,000/year.
- Volunteers - Trained volunteers to help with television and radio productions.
- Funding: Program - Many 16-21 year old youth interested in gaining skills as a digital neighborhood correspondents are trained as reporters for our channel and for AccessLocal.TV.
- Funding: Program - Donation support for expansion of Hometown TV grants providing coverage of local community events on cable.
- Funding: Unrestricted - Every dollar goes a long way in keeping the doors open. While equipment dollars support members with restricted funding, keeping the doors open longer and providing extended services are directly linked to new unrestricted dollars. Please Help.
