Since it’s inception 18 years ago, Pulse 101.7FM has been funded largely by people just like you, who know that positive music sharing truth in an accessible way to a younger audience is vital to our community.
This month, we ask once again for your help. It costs $300,000 per year to fund the Pulse 101.7FM mission (and that’s a tight budget!). About 1/3 of our financing comes from loyal advertisers, and the rest is from people throughout the Des Moines and Central Iowa community.
When you give a dollar a day at $30 per month, it may not feel like a lot. But when you join with hundreds of others who do the same, you’re truly making a difference in the lives of thousands!
There are almost half a million people living in the Greater Des Moines area. Only about 500 support your station. Our need is greater. Will you stand with Pulse 101.7FM and make your pledge? Your monthly gift matters!
As we continue our April fundraising efforts, we currently have just over half of our needed funding already pledged through donations and advertising. But we have $145,000 left to go, and we can’t do it without you!
If Pulse music matters to you, click here to pledge your support. Thank you for making a difference!
Having a family Bible gathering dust on a bookshelf is not a very good way to mature in faith. One of the more common complaints I hear from my fellow Christian friends is that they “don’t read the Bible enough”. This is a situation most of us can relate to. Oftentimes, it is simply because sometimes the Bible can seem difficult to interpret or understand without guidance from a pastor, minister, teacher, etc.
Study Bibles offer an in depth look into the Scriptures and most offer questions for critical thinking, to help better absorb what you are reading. You’d be surprised the difference a good Study Bible would make in your life. They are so easy to understand and helpful for large and small groups as well!
