Desi Radio & the Panjabi Centre is responsible for raising funding from various sources both public and private. The competition for funding is fierce, particularly in the current economic climate. We welcome any initiaitives from our friends in raising funds on our behalf. If you enjoy or have benefitted from the service we provide, or regularly tune into Desi Radio why not help us to raise more funds?
Additional funding will allow us to do more for our community. Below are two methods where you can help us.
Donating through PayPal
We have reviewed several web based fundraising methods by various groups serving the charitable sector. Many of them have high monthly service fees and also take a percentage of funds donated. For this reason we have chosen to open an account with PayPal and use this as the primary method of raising funds through our website.
You can send your donation securely using PayPal either by using your credit or debit card (you do not need a PayPal account), or if you have your own PayPal account then you can transfer donations to our account.
Follow this link to learn about PayPal.

Donating through EasyFundraising.org.uk
“Shop online and raise money for Desi Radio. So easy, so why not?”
Did you know that over 85% of UK households are connected to the internet? As with previous years more and more people will be shopping on line, which often saves money and adds convenience. Did you know that you can help to raise funds for Desi Radio through your internet purchases and it will not cost you a penny?
We have an account with EasyFundRaising.org.uk who act as an agent to over 2000 online retail companies including Tesco, Amazon and many high street names. If you do your Christmas shopping online through EasyFundRaising.org.uk you can help make a Big Difference for Desi Radio.
You are still buying from your favourite eRetailers, you are paying the same prices as going direct, and you may even save money with special offers. But you are also raising funds for Desi Radio while you are shopping online.

If you either work in a business that is looking for good causes, or are a leader in a business and you are looking for ways to give something back to the community through charitable giving why not consider featuring Desi Radio and the Panjabi Centre in Southall as your nominated charity.
We also welcome those that may be able to donate services and equipment to us to help us to serve the community through training and other initiatives.
We can provide you with information on how we help to promote Panjabi Culture and support the Panjabi Community not just in Southall, but across the UK with our radio station.
If this is something you could do to help us then we would very much like you to contact us. Please use our contact form.
We would not be here without the help of many sponsors that have both continuously extended their support through funding and other initiatives, and provided single donations. We would like to take this opportunity to recognise those organisations below.
