Ministry Mates

Life FM Gippsland is a listener-supported community radio station that relies on the ongoing generosity of its listeners to bring Gippsland a “positive” radio alternative.

Community radio stations are not permitted to rely solely on sponsorship advertising and are limited to only five minutes of sponsorship advertising per hour.

Life FM’s Ministry Mates program allows you to make regular monthly contributions to Life FM. Paying your contribution in smaller monthly instalments means it is less of a burden on your finances. And the regular income enables Life FM to budget more effectively.

All donations to Life FM are tax deductible.

So when Life FM Gippsland asks for your financial support it’s not always because something is wrong. It’s simply that we rely on your donations in order to remain on-air.

As a Ministry Mate you pledge a set amount to 1039 Life FM. We suggest a dollar a day, but you can pledge more or less depending on your circumstances. We will automatically deduct your pledge each month from your nominated account or you can sign up online.

How can I pay my donation?
You can pay by credit card here, or from your cheque or savings account via direct debit or by setting up a regular payment from your account to ours. Scroll to the bottom of this page for our direct deposit details.
