Wave Farm has secured 50 percent of the funds needed to go solar and acquire a new FM transmitter.

Big news from Wave Farm!

As the annual calendar winds down, we are reflecting back on a year of extraordinarily powerful and productive programs and looking forward to the year ahead. 2022 will not only mark Wave Farm's 25th Anniversary, but will also frame a renewed investment in and commitment to future experimentation with broadcast media and the airwaves.

We are thrilled to announce a year-end Capital Campaign to support Wave Farm operations, including electrical service at the WGXC 90.7-FM tower site, going solar in 2022. In conjunction, this campaign will also support the acquisition of a new WGXC-FM transmitter.

The price tag for the entire effort is $100,000. Thanks to a longtime supporter of WGXC in Western MA., who wishes to remain anonymous, we are already 50 percent of the way there.

We are now starting the permitting process with the Town of Cairo, and with your committed year-end support we will be able to move forward, dramatically cutting utility costs in the long term, and doing our part to reduce Wave Farm's carbon footprint.

Contributions are fully tax-deductible and are encouraged in a variety of ways:
  • Donate online at wavefarm.org/support 
  • Send a check to Wave Farm PO Box 13, Acra, NY 12405
  • Gift stock (your tax-deductible gift will reflect the stock's value at the time of the donation, with zero capital gains) by contacting galen@wavefarm.org for details.
  • Or, you can pledge your support now and contribute in 2022. Please contact galen@wavefarm.org to make arrangements.

Working with SunCommon (Rhinebeck, NY) solar panels installed on the Wave Farm Study Center roof (see rendering above and schematic below) will offset 100% of the Study Center usage including the WGXC Acra studio and property installations, as well as offset the electrical draw related to 90.7-FM at our leased American Tower site, thanks to remote net metering.

Your charitable contributions to Wave Farm make a world of difference, now more than ever!

 

Wave Farm remains tirelessly committed to making the airwaves a participatory medium. A pioneer of the Transmission Arts genre, Wave Farm programs provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form.

These activities are made possible, in part, from state and federal art grants, foundation support, earned income derived from studio rentals and special curatorial/consulting engagements, and from private, tax-deductible, support from individuals like you.

Support from listeners, attendees, and collaborators provide a critical piece to keeping Wave Farm programs afloat, especially WGXC 90.7-FM Radio for Open Ears, and we are grateful to the many individuals who have shown their generosity past, present, and future.
