What is Sharathon?
So glad you asked! Sharathon is the fall pledge drive that fuels ALL the ministry and music on SOS Radio. This radio station is completely listener supported. Every dollar in the budget is personally given by listeners like you! This year, Sharathon is Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, October 18 - 20!
How does Sharathon keep SOS Radio commercial free?
Most radio stations play 12-15 minutes of commercials every hour to generate revenue. SOS is not a business, it's a non profit ministry set up to serve our cities! You’ll never hear a paid ad on SOS Radio because we’re financially supported by our listeners. Families like yours make a financial gifts during Sharathon to cover the expenses behind SOS Radio. Your gifts make this ministry thrive! 100% of SOS Radio's finances come directly from listeners like you! The average gift is $40 per month.
So what does my monthly support impact?
Your gift fuels the life change that takes place in between the songs! Your gift ensures that all the music and messages continue to play on the air, and through your speakers. In short, your gifts cover the operating expenses of running this Christian radio ministry. There are expenses that come with radio technology, streaming royalties and broadcast innovation - but you make the ministry possible!
Your monthly support changes lives through real encounters with God’s love. When you join the SOS Support Team, you bring hope and encouragement to local people who are searching. It impacts our friends and neighbors locally, regionally, and around the globe.
What’s an Easy EFT?
The Easy EFT is a lot like an electronic check. It's simply a monthly “auto-pay” for your gift, using a direct deduction from your checking account. This option ensures the maximum amount of your gift reaches the ministry. Credit card companies charge fees, and take 3% or 4% out of every transaction. However, the Easy EFT is only 19 cents per transaction. It really is the best way to give, because it has the smallest processing fee. Learn more and click here. (You can sign up to give by grabbing your bank and routing number from the bottom of one of your checks.)
Are my donations Tax Deductible?
Yes! SOS Radio is actually a non profit organization called Faith Communications.
I have other questions – can I call and ask?
Yes, absolutely! Just call us at 800.804.5452. Our office is open between 9am & 5pm Pacific time.
We hope you'll listen in October 18-20 and celebrate with us! We'll share so many stories about how God is tangibly working in our cities!
