Not only was the goal for Air’s October fundraiser met, but listeners continued to give towards the ministry’s stretch goal in support of the station that has reminded them to worship through it.

The ministry of Air1 is continuing to strategically prioritize their connection with listeners year round, across all platforms, including fundraising events. And the overwhelming listener response from on-air, major gifts, direct mail and digital helped ensure Air1 stays financially strong as God continues to multiply each investment.  

Dunham+Company is proud to serve the Air1 network team and their amazing listeners.  Congratulations, Air1!
