Asking For Donations?… Why?
A lot of radio stations like ours call it a “Share a Thon.” This is the Spring version of the on-air fundraising efforts for our great group of listener supported stations all ministering right here on the Carolina Coast.
It’s an exciting broadcast event in which we ask listeners to help support this ministry over the next 12 months. It is filled with fun, moving testimonies, and lots of great music. During Shar-a-thon, listeners from across the area, from across denominational lines, and from different traditions join together to show their support of Carolina Christian Radio.
Why do you have a Shar-a-thon?
Carolina Christian Radio’s group of stations… Life 90.5 FM, The Dove 89.7 FM, The Word 106.7 FM and The Edge 88.5 FM, are all supported by listeners. Even the great business sponsors you hear are dedicated to supporting the ministry that goes forward on the airwaves. If you asked any one of our business sponsors why they give to the ministry, they would tell you that they are excited to see God use their business to make a difference in people’s lives right here at home on the Carolina Coast.
But the reality is, over 75% of the ministry’s budget comes from individuals, churches, families and civic groups donating gifts of $5, $10 and $25 or more on a regular basis. We come to you for three days during the Spring and Fall, asking you to supply the funds we need to operate. For over 20 years, God has been faithful to provide through people just like you. The Stronger Together Simulcast is a time of Celebrating, Sharing God’s goodness, encouraging each other and asking you to get involved with the giving team.
What’s in it for me?
Lives are changed every day. Marriages are strengthened, people discover God’s unconditional love in Christ for the first time, songs and scriptures are like God’s healing balm to wounded souls, minds are renewed, lives are transformed. It’s a great feeling knowing you are involved in such a significant way.
What’s a pledge?
It is a commitment of what you would like to donate as God provides. It is a commitment made between you and God. Carolina Christian Radio is not a bill collector. We will not harass you if your pledge is delayed.
Do you only accept gifts and pledges during Share a Thons?
No! You may make your tax-deductible contributions at any time. We just realize that we humans need reminded from time to time. Share a Thon is also a great time to share the vision with new listeners.
Do I get a receipt?
A tax deductible receipt will be issued through the mail each time a gift is given via check. An electronic gift acknowledgement is issued each time you donate using a debit or credit card on our electronic donation page. If you donate via monthly ACH withdrawal through your checking, savings or credit card account, you will see the donation reflected on your account statement, and for everyone donating $250 or more, a year-end statement of your giving will be issued by the end of January. If you would like a year-end statement, and your donations for the year totaled less then $250, you may request one by calling us Monday through Friday during regular business hours at 910-763-2452 or toll free 888-860-9945.
