Family Partners

98five has been affected by recent increases to the cost of living, just like all families! And, just like every family, we’re better able to weather the storms of times like these when we all pitch in and help each other out.

As a listener-supported community radio station, 98five relies on the help of our Family Partners, who support us by making a manageable donation each month from their nominated credit card or bank account.

Our Family Partners are vital in enabling us to meet the ongoing expenses of providing life-changing radio 24 hours a day, seven days a week to Perth and beyond.

Donations to 98five Sonshine FM are fully tax-deductible.

What is a Family Partner?

Family Partners are people who decide up-front on an annual amount they wish to donate to 98five, and then spread their gift out, usually over monthly instalments. Their donation is made via credit card or direct debit on a preferred day each month.

 

Do I Have to Give Monthly or Can I Give More or Less Often?

You can arrange whatever amount and frequency of giving best suits your circumstances. Many of our Family Partners choose to give monthly, but some give fortnightly, quarterly, half yearly and even annually.

 

Are Donations Tax Deductible?

Yes. All donations to 98five are fully tax deductible.

 

How and When Do I Receive my Donation Tax Receipt?

Family Partners receive written confirmation when their pledge is set up, then, in early July each year, all Family Partners receive a receipt with a total of their donations for the financial year. The receipt is sent to the preferred email or postal address. If a receipt is ever lost, it can be re-sent.

 

What If My Circumstances Change?

If circumstances change, the donation amount can be adjusted, suspended for a period of time, or stopped altogether. As always, giving to 98five is an invitation and never an obligation.

 

What is Your Money Used For?

As with all donations to 98five, funds are used exclusively to support the operations of the radio station. This enables 98five to continue to share the Christian message of hope with Perth and beyond, 24 hours day, every day of the year.

 

Why are Family Partners so Important for 98five?

98five has regular bills it needs to pay, just like any organisation. Having Family Partners pledge their commitment in advance, and pay that pledge in regular instalments, helps with our cash-flow and gives us confidence to better plan for the future.

 

How Are You Acknowledged?

All donors are acknowledged when first signed up, and automatically receive our regular communications, including newsletters, emails and their annual tax receipt. We thank Family Partners on air from time to time, using only their first name and suburb if they are comfortable to be acknowledged in this way. The pledge amount is never mentioned, because the amount people are able to give is different. Every gift is celebrated, no matter how big or small.
