98five’s Vote for Hope appeal is on now!
We are a listener-supported community radio station whose mission is to impact more WA lives for the better with a positive message of HOPE and we can’t do it without your generous donations.

Tune in between June Appeal week, Friday 24 June to Thursday 30 June, to hear your 98five family’s
Vote for Hope message being broadcast throughout Perth and WA.
At a time when Australians are inundated with rarely-kept election promises, 98five has been campaigning throughout June to tackle today’s loneliness epidemic by getting out into the local community in order to have a greater reach into the lives of those West Australians feeling isolated.
Last Friday’s All You Can Greet Street Party, partnered with local Perth cafes joining the Station’s Pay It Forward Friday initiative is just one example of 98five putting ‘a greater reach’ action plan into place.
98five believes we can go where others can’t — we can broadcast straight into WA cars and homes.
And with more than half of our operational costs funded by listeners, 98five relies on YOU to continue to broadcast a positive message of hope.
This year we need your help to raise $405,000.
Through listener-donations, having a greater reach into thousands of more WA cars and homes and having a positive impact on WA families and individuals is a promise 98five believes we can keep.
Here are just two of many listener stories of how 98five has impacted their lives.
“98five means a lot to me because about 15 years ago I was in a really bad place. My life was pretty painful and pretty dark. I ended up going to prison for a while and when I came out I had no hope. I was walking around late at night with the earphones in and I came across a song which I liked so I left it on that station and as the song finished it was 98five. I was crying and tears were running down my eyes and I found myself in the middle of this oval and I dropped to my knees and looked up and said ‘please, help me, help me’. 98five has played a pivotal role in my life.” ~Shane, 2015
“I’ve been going through a tough time lately myself. The songs you put on I felt went straight to me and I actually got home that night and just felt a lot of peace come over me for what I’m going through. It’s just an honour to have you doing what the Lord has got planned there,” ~Chris
