Why Give

Your partnership touches lives!

I woke up to my radio alarm today to hear you say the morning inspiration: 'GOD'S GOT YOUR BACK!' This past Monday, I had said I wanted to KNOW that God's Got My Back!!!! Thank you for giving me my answer! I am very grateful to hear God's Voice and answer to my prayer through you and this station. - Lin

As a community-supported station, the majority of our operating funds come from our listeners. We currently have about 35% of that need covered by faithful monthly donors who want to help touch lives like Lin's with the Hope and Love of Jesus.

Your monthly or single gifts make a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of listeners - in their cars, at home or at work listening on their radios, computers and smartphones. A gift of any amount will reap dividends in the lives of family, friends and neighbours throughout our area.
