After much prayer and many hours invested in the budget process, we’ve determined the listener portion of our budget for 2018 to be $1,200,000.
We’re anticipating the need to hold two on-air fundraisers to reach our annual listener budget need. The first is happening March 13-16th during KLRC’s "All In" Spring Fundraiser. Our goal for this specific event is $810,000. That will leave us with a funding need this fall of about $390,000.
Thanks to many faithful ongoing monthly supporters of the ministry, we're starting the Spring Fundraiser already around 55% of the way towards that $810,000 goal!
All dollars raised above and beyond the $810,000 goal this spring will be applied to the overall annual need of $1,200,000. For example, if listeners pledge a total of $850,000 this spring, then we could reduce the amount we need to raise in the fall to only $350,000. See how that works? You may already be wondering what would happen if the full $1,200,000 is pledged this March? Let me assure you, there would be much celebration! And, because we would be fully funded, we would not need to host a second fundraiser this fall.
Our team is aware every day that this ministry exists only through the gifts and prayers of some very special listeners and friends. Many give sacrificially to be a part of what God is doing in and through the ministry of KLRC. We’re ever mindful of and grateful for those sacrifices. We hope this is evident in our fundraising and budgeting process. Every effort is made to operate this ministry with the transparency and integrity that your support and our Lord require.
If you have any questions about KLRC funding or operations not answered here, I encourage you to reach out any time. I’d love to tell you more about how God has used your support to grow a little campus-only radio station to a ministry that impacts more than 100,000 lives each week!
