Shareathon FAQs

In Not Shown, Just Linked To by Libby

 

What is Share-A-Thon?
It’s our bi-annual fundraiser, but it’s also a celebration! A time of sharing! LifeSongs is a non-profit, listener supported radio station. That means listeners just like you financially support this ministry! Your gifts today allow us to continue sharing Jesus with our community. Twice a year, we set aside our regular programming (for just a few days) to remind you how important you are to this ministry, and to give YOU an opportunity to give to LifeSongs, playing a huge role in reaching people for Jesus.

Why do you need me?
Nearly half of our operating budget comes directly from individual listener giving. Of all those who listen to Christian radio, only about 5% financially support it. Just think of how much could be accomplished if all who listened were to give! LifeSongs is listener-supported, which means we depend on your financial gifts to continue this ministry. When you support LifeSongs, you fund much more than our radio stations in New Orleans, White Castle-Baton Rouge, Houma, and Kentwood-McComb. Your support helps change lives every day for Jesus! You are making a difference.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” – Galatians 6:9-10

Why is my gift important?
Because we are a non-commercial, listener supported radio. That means a sense of shared ownership accompanies each gift of support. It’s confirmation that God is using LifeSongs to have an impact. Every call of support, every gift is an investment in what God is using LifeSongs to do.

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10

What’s in it for me?
We are so humbled that people voluntarily support LifeSongs. Our supporters are not consumers. They are active members of the LifeSongs team! Believers in the mission of LifeSongs! When you give a financial gift, you are investing in something that may not “feel” tangible, but has long-lasting benefits. Those benefits become tangible in efforts like Strike Out Hunger, the Back to School Project, partnership with the New Orleans Mission, the Love Drive for the Blood Center, the Mother’s Day Diaper Drive, Prayer Works, and more. These special community outreaches are realized only through our LifeSongs giving family, which includes YOU!

What if I can’t give very much?
Do what you can! Every gift, every amount truly makes a big difference!

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19

Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes! LifeSongs is a 501c 3 not-for-profit ministry.

Where does the money go?
Your contribution is impacting lives and families across the listening area. It literally keeps LifeSongs on the air, and has allowed us to expand our ministry reach! That support goes toward electricity, equipment, maintenance, towers, transmitters, translators, antennas, phone lines, bandwidth, music licensing, legal fees, salaries and more.
