Giving Options

Holy Family Radio is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported by the prayerful and financial generosity of listeners.  There are a variety of ways to support Holy Family Radio, as varied as the people who have helped this lay apostolate grow to a network of four stations with streaming and mobile apps – in the Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo Dioceses.  Thank you in advance for your consideration and may God bless you for your generosity.

Direct Financial Donation – One Time / Special Gift or Monthly Recurring Gifts
Every donation is greatly appreciated and helps keep this station on the air.  Since Holy Family Radio is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your financial donations are tax deductible.  Selecting a recurring gift affords the opportunity to budget your financial support and the convenience of automatic donations.  These monthly gifts help sustain this station throughout the year, especially in the months between our fundraising appeals.

In-Kind Gifts
Gifts of personal property such as technology, equipment, furniture and other items relevant to the needs of the station and in good condition are welcome.  The acceptance of in-kind gifts is determined on a case by case basis.  The donor, through appraisal or record of purchase, determines the gift value.  With certain items, it is important that you transfer the ownership of these assets to Holy Family Radio instead of selling them and donating the proceeds of the sale to avoid capital gains taxes.  You may wish to consult a tax advisor for your particular situation.  Call our toll free number 844-337-2346 for more information.

Planned Giving
Planned gifts are those that are made today to be received in the future. They are very similar to financial investments. Among them are life insurance, appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, wills and bequests.  More often than not, planned gifts result in very specific tax benefits to the donor during his or her lifetime and may result in the ability to make a more significant gift than might have otherwise been possible. For more information, please contact your financial or tax advisor.
