Why does 98five have appeals?

As a sponsorship restricted community radio station, over 50% of our funding has to come from listeners and the community. Without it we can’t exist.

For more information, visit our About Us page.

How much does 98five need to raise for this month’s Stories of Hope June Appeal 2017?

To responsibly pay all of the bills we’ve budgeted for, we need to raise $410,000 this June.

How long does 98five’s June Appeal run for?

The actual appeal only runs for 5 days up to the end of the financial year — 6pm, Friday 30 June.

How can I donate?

1. Via our secure and safe website

2. EFT directly into our back account:

BSB, 306-042
Account No., 085 0932

3. Phone our friendly team on 9313 0985 during June Appeal Week, 6am-6pm, Monday 26 June to Friday 30 June. For outside of June Appeal week, phone 9313 0800 during regular office hours.

Where does my donation go?

Your donation goes directly to pay for transmission costs, music royalties and other daily expenses to keep broadcasting hope 24 hours a day.

Is my donation tax deductible?

It certainly is. Any gift above $2 will receive a tax deductible receipt from us via your preferred method to help you with your tax return.

Is my payment secure?

Yes. Our regulatory, approved and audited payment facilities ensure 100% safe transactions.

Can I drop my donation in next week?

You can drop any gifts into the station or continue to donate securely online after June 30  but it will be legally considered as given in the following financial year and your receipt will count for next year’s tax return.

A great way to help 98five budget responsibly month-to-month is by becoming a 98five Family Partner and giving a small manageable monthly gift.

How can I share ‘my story’ of how 98five has impacted my life/my family’s life?

We would love to hear your 98five Sonshine FM story. You can share it in the ‘comments’ section on our donation page. Or call one of our team during office hours on 9313 0800.
