Partnerships and Event Support
We at CFRU Radio recognize that our station includes a talented and diverse community of volunteers, many of whom are involved in promoting events in the Guelph area.

We welcome the opportunity to support any events that reflect our mandate, and we encourage all volunteers to bring forward ideas for shared promotions and presentations.

Please note that all events co-sponsored by CFRU must receive approval from the station. All volunteers who wish to use the station’s logo for an event or project must first receive permission from CFRU staff or the board of directors.
