Eastern and central North Carolina’s 100% listener supported Catholic radio station, Catholic 540-AM Divine Mercy Radio, will host its next Live On-Air Pledge Drive Wednesday, April 14th through Friday April 16th. This will be the volunteer-run radio station’s first Live On-Air Pledge Drive of 2021.
The theme of this Spring Pledge Drive is “Our Daily Bread”.
The fundraising focus is to raise money specifically and importantly for the Raleigh-based Catholic broadcaster’s significant monthly bills for normal operations. For example, 10,000/4,400 watt radio stations that operate 24 hours a day use a lot of electricity – monthly operational bills like that add up for Divine Mercy Radio.
Because Catholic 540-AM is completely independent and not financially supported by any Diocese, Divine Mercy Radio relies on the generosity of its listener-donors to pay the station’s bills for normal operations and critical projects. Businesses can also support the radio station through advertising/underwriting programs that feature on-air and website announcement for the businesses.
None of the fundraising for this Spring’s “Our Daily Bread” fundraising campaign for Divine Mercy Radio will go towards the station business loan it took out when the 501(c)(3) corporation bought WETC-AM two years ago.
To donate, supporters can make their tax deductible donation by calling 919-300-5400 or by visiting the website catholic540am.org.
Donations can also be made via Divine Mercy Radio app for iPhone and Android; available via the Apple App Store or Google Play, the Divine Mercy Radio FREE app can be found by searching "Divine Mercy Radio NC".
Catholic 540-AM Divine Mercy Radio is North Carolina’s largest Catholic radio station.
