Wow, what an incredible week last week was. Our November Appeal target was to raise $50,000 in three days, and you did it! Together we raised a total of $50,676, and signed up three new monthly partners. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who gave during this time, or called up with a pledge. You’re amazing. We can’t express enough our gratitude to you.
A listener-supported station
We’ve said time and time again that ultra106.5fm wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for your generosity, and it’s completely true. Your donations make up nearly 45% of our annual income (the other 55% comes from sponsorship, and there are strict laws limiting how many sponsorship spots we’re allowed to play each day). One of the reasons for this is to ensure that community radio stations continue to stay relevant to the community they’re serving, and the overwhelming message we got from our listeners is that WE ARE!
“Brilliant, family-friendly, uplifting radio”
We had the incredible privilege the other day of speaking to a lady about how ultra106.5fm has been instrumental in bringing hope for the future to her family when they felt they were fractured beyond repair. They switched to the station and, little piece by little piece, found parenting tips, relationship advice, short spots on better communication, and, above all, a positive outlook and HOPE that transformed them. She told us, “We all get something out of it, it’s bringing the family unit back together, and being able to talk together, and talk about anything, has just strengthened the family unit, and really saved our relationship together.”
Stories like this are possible because of YOU. Never underestimate the difference you are making in people’s lives.
We’re proud to be serving the people of Hobart and Southern Tasmania. Thank you so much for making ultra106.5fm your station.
