WLCQ/Springfield, MA (The Q 99.7) Pres/GM Nate Thomas tells HisAir, ‘We reached 102% of our Listener Support Month goal! Just about 50% of the support that came in over the last 3 days of the Fall Fundraiser were brand new givers! We are so grateful to God for his provision and to our amazing listeners that stepped up to give and support this local ministry for Greater Springfield.”

WEMI/Appleton, WI (The Family Radio Network) blew the doors off of their Fall Fundraiser, reaching 114% of the goal.

“Vidare Creative is blessed to be a fundraising partner with The Family to help reach their mission to ‘win a million souls for Jesus Christ.’ The listeners have caught the vision and responded in a massive way,” says Bill Scott, Vidare’s Chief Client Officer.
