FCC Offers Waivers For Noncomms To Raise Haiti Aid Funds
January 14, 2010 at 4:42 AM (PT)
The FCC has established procedures to allow noncommercial stations to raise funds for the rescue and aid efforts in HAITI.
Waivers of the rules banning noncommercial stations from fundraising for anyone other than the station itself will be granted if the stations file an informal request for a Section 73.503(d) or 73.621(e) waiver by e-mail to PETER DOYLE (email@example.com) and MICHAEL WAGNER (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The request should provide basic details of the fundraising activity, including the nature of the fundraising effort; the proposed duration of the fundraising effort; the organization(s) to which funds will be donated; and whether the fundraiser will be part of the licensee’s regularly scheduled pledge drive or fundraising effort.
