Spring Pledge Drive – 2013

Thank You

Thanks to several hundred people who came together last week from the Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo Dioceses for three days of fun and fundraising! With the help of our chair couple, the many volunteers, guests and supporters, close to $122,000 was raised to keep this station going and growing! Every single gift is appreciated.

It’s not too late to make a pledge! We’re still shy of our goal, but we trust God will continue to provide what is needed. And with the excitement and flurry of calls during the last hour of the pledge drive, we know many listeners may still want to pledge their support. You can pledge by calling 616-956-1140 Monday – Friday 9am-4pm, or donate online anytime at www.HolyFamilyRadio.net.

Pledge Drive Audio Archives – Click on “Audio Archives” under the “Programming” drop-down menu and listen to the hours you missed during the pledge drive.

Check Out Holy Family Radio’s Facebook photo gallery for lots of great pledge drive photos!

The stories we heard during the pledge drive were most touching, from an unemployed person who sent in a generous gift, to the person who said this station helped save his life in a time of crisis. Thanks to everyone for your kind support as Together, We Can Make a Difference in the lives of those around us.


Join in the fun and fundraising and be part of the excitement for Christ and His Church!  Many local vibrant parishes, ministries and organizations will be highlighted during the 3 days and 33 hours of Holy Family Radio’s Spring Pledge Drive.  Tune in to hear your favorite priest and other guests you know and love.
