The name of the Corporation is Boulder Community Broadcast Association, Incorporated (BCBA), doing business as KGNU Radio (KGNU). BCBA is organized as a private, non-governmental, nonprofit Corporation under the laws of the
State of Colorado and pursuant to IRS Section 501(c)(3), to furnish non-commercial broadcast, content distribution services, high-quality educational, cultural, music, news and public affairs programs.

To that end, BCBA is empowered, but is in no way limited, to obtain and hold appropriate authorizations from the Federal Communications Commission; to construct, operate, and maintain noncommercial educational broadcast stations; to obtain and to hold by contribution, deed, or lease real or personal property and funds to be used in connection with the operation

1.2 Purposes and Mission
KGNU Mission Statement
KGNU is an independent, noncommercial community radio station licensed in Boulder and Denver and dedicated to serving its listeners. We seek to stimulate, educate and entertain our audience, to reflect the diversity of the local and world community, and to provide a channel for individuals, groups, issues and music that have been overlooked, suppressed or underrepresented by other media.

KGNU depends on community Volunteers, coordinated by paid Staff, to produce quality programming. We rely on our audience for financial support. The Board of Directors of the Boulder Community Broadcast Association, Inc., is the licensee and is legally responsible for the conduct of station activities. The Board hires a Manager who is responsible for managing the Station and hiring other Staff. The Board, Staff and Volunteers are committed to collaboration
with each other.

The Station seeks to expand the listening audience through the excellence of its programming without compromising the principles stated here.
