    The Air1 Difference

    Most radio stations play an average of 18 commercials an hour. Not Air1!
    This means we play more songs every hour than most radio stations.

    Air1 is supported by your monthly donation and a few select businesses.
    Air1 is not supported by a small group of large donors, a giant corporation, or some big church. Most people like you support Air1 with $40.00 per month.

    What Does My Monthly Support Pay For?

    • Keeping The Station On The Air

      Programming, business expenses, maintenance, processing, etc.

    • Music

      Air1 is an outlet for music like none other. While playing music on the radio sounds simple it's actually quite costly due to publishing rights, royalties, streaming fees, etc. Watch Kim's story of how the music on Air1 has had a positive impact on her life.

    • 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.

    • Other Ministries

      Air1 also supports other ministries by providing free airtime, web and social media exposure—all free of charge.

    • Expansion

      Air1 continues to grow into great communities, such as Philadelphia and Minneapolis in the last year!

    What's an EZ Gift?

    The EZ Gift is basically a monthly "auto-pay" using a credit or debit card. This actually saves Air1 money and makes your gift go even further!

    What is a Challenge Gift?

    This is when Air1 listeners are "challenged" to meet various conditions during pledge drive (ex: if 100 people make a $40 EZ Gift during 1 song, a $10,000 gift will be given to Air1). The challenge fund is built by generous donors whose gifts are used to inspire other listeners to give. The Challenge Gift is only added to the pledge drive goal if the condition of the challenge is met.

    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.

    One Mission: HOPE!
