How are we funded?
- CitrusTV is a recognized student organization on the Syracuse University campus. It does not receive any funding from the University or any of the colleges on campus.
- The annual operating budget is funded by an a portion of the student fee, which the Student Association allocates to a line-item budget. Each member of CitrusTV pays just a few dollars a year to use real-world, industry-standard equipment.
- CitrusTV relies on donations from outside sources to cover promotional and travel expenses, which the Student Association does not fund. Donations also cover the purchase of any item the Student Association chooses to remove from the annual budget, and they fund long-term projects such as CitrusTV’s ongoing upgrades to ensure students are using the most cutting-edge production equipment to prepare them for the real world.
- Because CitrusTV is a recognized student organization, it falls under the umbrella of the University’s 501(c)3 status. All donations to CitrusTV are tax deductible, and proof of tax exemption is available upon request.
How else can I help?
CitrusTV offers advertising on air and on our Web site for businesses interested in making a sponsorship donation. Aside from monetary donations, we also always can use in-kind donations of services or goods to help our operations and productions. Donations may also be earmarked by the donor for large-scale projects named after the donor. Please call us to work something out – (315) 443-2041.
