• Why Do We Ask For Money?

    HOPE Matters

    Air1’s focus is to encourage you to have a meaningful relationship with Christ! When you give, you are funding the ministry of Air1 for you and impacting others!

    The Air1 Difference is...

    Most radio stations play an average of 19 Commercials an hour. Not at Air1.This means we can play more songs every hour than most radio stations.

    Air1 is supported by your monthly donation.

    Air1 is not supported by a group of large donors, a giant corporation, or some big church. The majority of donors support Air1 at the $40.00 per month level.

    So what does my monthly support pay for?

    • Keeping the station on the air

      Programming, business expenses, maintenance, publishing and streaming fees, etc.

    • Music

      Air1 is music. While playing music on the radio sounds simple it's actually quite costly due to publishing rights, royalties, streaming fees, etc.

    • Christ-centered – Clean entertainment

      For you and your family. We are literally drowning in a sea of social and moral decline. Air1 is giving you an alternative to all that other stuff.

    • News

      From a Christian point of view. At Air1, you’ll always know what’s going on, AND we’ll also tell you what’s going right!

    • Spiritual elements

      Between the songs that keep you focused on God and help you grow spiritually.

    • The daily encouraging word

      Throughout the day, we share the verses of the day to help you stay close to God.

    • Concerts and events

      Where you can not only have fun with your family, but also be built up in your faith.

    • Pastors

      We have 10 full-time Pastors on staff who are on call 24/7/365. These are not volunteer Pastors...they are full-time staff members. Our Pastors field more than 4,500 calls per month ranging from simple needs to life threatening issues, including suicide.

    • Expansion

      Air1 continues to grow into new areas like Nashville, plus improve current signals like in Los Angeles!

    • A Refuge

      For the single mom who is struggling to make ends meet, for the person thinking about taking their life, for the family in deep financial debt, someone who needs to hear from God and the right song comes on … Air1 is a refuge from the stresses of life – but so much more than that – Air1 is about YOU, pointing towards the truth in God’s Word

    What's an EZ Gift?

    This is an automatic, monthly payment from your credit or debit card. It saves the ministry money, which means we can put your gift to even better use!

    What's a Challenge Gift?

    This is when Air1 listeners are "challenged" by another generous donor’s gift (ex: if 100 people to make a $40EZ gift during 1 song, a $10,000 gift will be added to the total for Air1). The challenge fund gifts are used to inspire other listeners to give.

    If you are interested in making a Challenge Gift, please call 888-937-2471.

    Are My Donations Tax Deductible?

    Yes! Air1 is governed by the Educational Media Foundation (EMF), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit ministry. We also have a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest rating a non-profit can receive.

    I Have Other Questions, Can I Call And Ask?

    Yes! Anytime, day or night... 888-937-2471.

    We're here to serve you, your family, and your community in any way possible.
