Your response to the ‘Be The Spark’ June Appeal 2014 was quite simply astonishing. At $790,000 it was the largest target we have set in our 35-year history, but it wasn’t overly ambitious or unrealistic.
It was built around last year’s result factoring in the ever-increasing costs associated with keeping the ministry going. This is very much a ‘pay the bills’ appeal for your not-for-profit community radio station.
What You Achieved!
– $790,000 June Budget PLUS
– over $120,000 Hear Hope Outdoor Advertising Campaign
Praise God, you reached the target just before 8 am on the final day of June!
The live tally room was buzzing with volunteers and staff, tremendously encouraged after a week of hearing the inspiring testimonies of so many Hope 103.2 listeners. You shared what Hope 103.2 means to you, and you gave fellow listeners so many reasons to climb on board to support the ministry. We hope you got a sense of the excitement inside the tally room. Thank you!
But it didn’t end there.
With a full day before the close of the financial year, we asked you the question, what if we could try something different? Something we’ve thought about many times, but haven’t had the resources to explore. We hear so many stories of people finding Hope 103.2 by accident, and we hear too many stories of people who don’t know we exist – and haven’t experienced the hope found in Christ. We want to change that. We need to change that. So we asked for your support to launch Hope’s very first outdoor advertising campaign. By the end of the day, you had raised just over $120,000 to get this campaign off the ground! An incredible effort – your generosity will introduce millions of people around this city to your favourite radio station.
“Thank you for your amazing inspirational presence. I LOVE your marketing plans, as people need to know where to turn and tune in. Friends in my car often ask what station I have on, but have not heard of it before!”
“I already donated this month, but this morning when I found out about the marketing campaign, I decided to donate again for such a wonderful idea. My family used to think I was boring listening to this station, but now my teen girls sing along to songs they know from going to Youth Group. Thanks for such a wonderful station at all times of the day and night.”
Thank you for partnering with Hope 103.2 to share real hope with the people of Sydney and beyond.Thank you, thank you, thank you!
