Each summer, Spirit Catholic Radio hosts three special days of on-air fun to raise funds for expenses that are above our typical operating expenses. Your support for these special projects is key. Why? Because we are a listener-funded, non-profit radio apostolate. In other words, we’re YOUR Catholic radio station! And we’re extremely grateful and humbled by your support.
How can you help?
You can make a tax-deductible gift to Spirit Catholic Radio to help meet our goal of raising $75,000 during the Three Days of Summer Fun. A gift of any amount is appreciated.

Summer 2018 Special Project List
- Additional computer server – $22,000
We currently have computer programs (including our billing system for underwriting) and specific work that should be server-based and backed up. The need for an additional server for these reasons is driven by the growth of the radio network (praise God!). Being able to add an additional server will ensure the safety and security of important, valuable work that has been done.
- New website – $28,000
Spirit Catholic Radio is excited to announce the upcoming arrival of a brand new website. Unfortunately, in 2017, Spirit Catholic Radio lost its website entirely and unexpectedly. Years worth of work was gone in mere seconds. The old website was created using obsolete technology. We were able to put together a temporary website, which is what you currently see at spiritcatholicradio.com. In today’s web-focused world, a website is an organization’s first impression and often the first opportunity to capture a new listener. Daily, spiritcatholicradio.com receives hundreds of visits. Our new website will be easier to navigate, feature a beautiful visual design, will have improved functionality and provide visitors with resources and more opportunities to encounter Jesus. The new website will utilize professional features and design, and is being created by a web development and design group. We know our current and potential listeners alike with be positively affected by the new spiritcatholicradio.com.
- 20th Anniversary Celebration evangelization – $25,000
In 2019, Spirit Catholic Radio will celebrate 20 years of broadcasting the Gospel message. We have BIG things planned for this 20-Year Celebration, which we will kick off in July 2018. Each of the things we have planned are designed to do two things: 1.Engage our current friends and listeners and help them grow in their faith and 2. Evangelize–bring in new listeners and help spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible. We can’t think of anything better than to give thanks to God for the last 20 years by bringing more people to Him! Some of the exciting things happening between July 2018 and December 2019 include billboards to attract new listeners; speakers such as Steve Ray, Jason Evert, Dr. Ray Guarendi, Fr. Wade Menezes and more; special events and promotions; and a fun passport program to encourage listenership and promote family unity.
Total Goal: $75,000
