Coast Community Radio awarded grant from Templin Foundation
February 27, 2020
Coast Community Radio (CCR), the nonprofit radio station in the Columbia-Pacific region, has received a $7000 grant from The Templin Foundation of Pacific County, WA. Station Manager Graham Nystrom wrote the grant for money toward the Radio For Good (RFG) campaign. The foundation awarded CCR $7000 toward phase two of RFG project to repair, replace, and update all of their broadcast equipment from microphone to transmitter.
The Templin Foundation has once again come through for CCR's Radio for Good campaign. Templin Foundation funds are for projects in Pacific County, which is where their main transmitter site is located. For three years in a row, the Templin Foundation has helped them replace critical equipment at the transmitter site on Megler Mountain including a broadcast equipment monitor and remote control, KCPB's transmitter, the new KMUN transmitter, and now they are upgrading their Studio-Transmitter Links (STL's) which will help guarantee Coast Community Radio is on the air. The Templin Foundation was initiated by an endowment from Russell Templin, a citizen and businessman in Pacific County in the 1950's. Since the 1990's, when the Foundation starting awarding grants, it has distributed over $4,000,000 to a host of causes in south Pacific County.
Coast Community radio is a member-supported, volunteer-operated radio station, serving a diverse listening audience along the North Oregon and SW Washington coasts, from Raymond, Washington to Pacific City, Oregon.
