PBS needs your help to Make It Home as we move to The Collingwood Yards.

We are about to embark on a game-changing new venture - and we need your help!  The lease on our building is expiring, the landlord has sold the property and we need to move out and start again.  The good news is that we've been named the anchor tenant of the new not-for-profit Collingwood Yards - a place for organisations dedicated to music and other creative endeavours.

The challenge is that the move, renovations and studio build will cost us $1.5 million.  

You can get behind PBS by making a tax-deductible donation to our Make It Home appeal by clicking here, or calling 8415 1067.  Every donation will help, and below are some suggested levels of support.

  • $25,000 and above - Sky's the Limit*
  • $25,000 - Raising the Roof*
  • $10,000 - Higher Ground*
  • $5,000 - Build Me Up*
  • $1,067 - Good Vibrations*
  • $500 - Brick by Brick
  • $250 - Foundation
  • $2 to $249 - Basement Jams

* You'll be acknowledged on a plaque in our new home!

All donations over $2 to the station are tax deductible – so if you're already a member, that's extra incentive to donate and help minimise your bill at tax time.
