Resources for Nonprofits

Over the past 30 years, the Community Media Center (CMC) has evolved in many ways. But one thing that has never changed is our commitment to the nonprofit community. The CMC is, at its core, a multimedia and technology assistive organization.

We are here to help local nonprofits tell their stories and create the biggest impact within their communities.

We do this by providing access to equipment, media services and community venues - all at an affordable nonprofit rate. The CMC has many free services as well, like radio and television Public Service Announcements (PSAs) and The Rapidian, our platform for citizen journalism.
