Sharathon

 

What is Sharathon? That is what we call our summer fundraising event when we dedicate several days of air time to raise the operating budget for KWFC.

What is the money used for? As a listener supported ministry, everything that you hear, every song that you love, our prayer line, our outreach and events, our programs, are made possible because people like you financially support the ministry of 89.1 KWFC.

 

Who are KWFC supporters? Individual and businesses who love Jesus and love KWFC GIVE generously to fuel this ministry.

What happens during Sharathon? We'll be sharing testimonies about how God is using KWFC to impact people in the Ozarks. And we'll be inviting people like you to join those who are already giving to keep KWFC on the air. People will call and give or go online and give. Some may even stop by. Those gifts will fund the ministry in the months ahead.

What will I hear?  In addition to amazing testimonies ... great music, lots of prayers, special guests sharing their passion for KWFC's ministry, invitations to give by phone and online, crazy sound effects, ringing phones and US saying thank you ALOT!

How long does it last? We are scheduled to go four days...but we'll wrap things up as soon as we hit the goal.

How much do I have to give? Every gift helps and there is no minimum or maximum. The average gift is $30 a month. But some give $1000 all at once and others give $10.  We ask that you pray and give as the Lord leads.

What is your goal? We're praying to hear from 383 people giving an average gift of $1 a day. That will raise $137,900. We call those giving $1 a day or more a MMMP - that's short for More Than Music Mission Partner.

What's in it for me? You'll be partnering with God and KWFC to impact the Ozarks for Christ. You'll have a stake in everything we do. You'll share hope and encouragement with thousands of people each week.  And you'll receive great benefits as a MMMP - early entrance to select concerts and 300,000 discounts for things like dining out, shopping, services, entertainment and travel. If you give before 6 p.m. on August 16th, we'll also put your name in a drawing to win a cabin for two on the Camp Meeting At Sea Cruise. Click here for details.

How can I help?  Pray for us and ask what God would have you give. Then click here to give now...or call us at 800-658-0353. You can make a one-time gift or sign up for monthly giving. You can give using your debit or credit card,  give automatically from your bank account. Or send a check to 2550 South Campbell Ave., Springfield MO 65807.

What is Listener Supported?

 

Thank you for your interest in supporting KWFC Radio. This ministry depends on God to provide through the support of generous people like you!


Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about supporting KWFC Radio:

  • What does "listener supported" mean?

 

People like you provide financially through contributions to help 88.3 The Wind share joy with all who listen. That means the funds that it takes to operate this ministry is provided through the gifts of individuals and businesses.  We are a non-profit radio ministry and we are delighted to partner with people like you. Would you pray today and ask what God would have you do to support 88.3 The Wind? Your prayers for this ministry are also very much appreciated.

  • How much do I have to give?

 

We are grateful for your contribution of any amount.

The average gift is about $30 per month or $360 annually. People who give at this level are called “More Than Music Ministry Partners”. Some give more – others give less. We suggest you pray and ask God what He would have you do. Whatever gift you give will be a blessing.

  • What is Automatic Giving?

 

You can make your gift automatically each month from your bank account, credit or debit card.  You say when.  You say how much.  You say how long.  It’s secure and it’s the easiest way to support KWFC Radio. Give $30 per month or more using Automatic Giving and you will receive a "MMMP" Benefits Card.  It will allow you early entrance to select concerts.  In addition, the benefits card entitles you to special discounts and exclusive online coupons at more than 100,000 merchants nationwide, including restaurants, shopping, recreation and automotive discounts.  We hope you’ll hear our THANK YOU every time you save.


  • Is my gift tax deductible?

 

Yes, minus the fair market value of any benefits received. (The IRS requires we let you know that!) 

The IRS requires that you deduct the Fair Market Value* of the Benefits Card ($20) that you will receive as a MMMP your contribution when determining the tax-deductible portion of your gift to 88.3 The Wind. If you wish to decline the gifts associated with your MMMP gift, please call us at 417.869.0891 as soon as possible so that we can honor your request. If you decline MMMP gifts, then the full amount of your contribution will be tax deductible. *The Fair Market Value of the items you receive is NOT what we paid for these items. We receive them at substantial discounts but are required by the IRS to report the FMV.

Tax receipts detailing this are sent in January to those who give $250 or more during the previous year.

  • What do I get when I give?

 

First, you’ll get our sincere thanks for your support!

You’ll receive a written thank you notice and receipt in the mail within just a few days.  We also mail a monthly letter with station information and to share how your gift is helping KWFC Radio touch lives.  If you give $250 or more within a calendar year, you will receive a tax receipt in January outlining the tax-deductibility of your gift.
