HELP YOUR Q STATION CLOSE OUT 2018 STRONG!
Be 1 of 100 Friends to give a $100 one-time gift or more.
Maybe you've got Christmas shopping on your mind right now. The average household will spend $1,500+ on gifts this year. Before you hit the mall, consider giving back to your community! Of course this is the season of giving, so would you consider giving an extra single gift to help THE Q90.1 and The All-New Q91.5 close out strong.
Your gift, ANY SIZE, will help fund some special year-end needs.
Here are some of the immediate needs your Q90.1 / Q91.5 has and how your one-time, single gift will help!
(3) Air Conditioning / Heater Units for Q91.5
The outdoor cabinet that stores all of our broadcasting equipment in Rhode Island needs additional climate control units. We've discovered the equipment is overheating during the hot summer months and needs to stay at a warmer temperature during the winter months. The A/C & heating units installed are not doing the trick as it has caused several instances of equipment failure over the last several months. We have been tasked by our engineers to add 3 units to our cabinet to properly keep the equipment at optimum temperatures.
We want to be excellent stewards of the equipment we have purchased with your generous support!
(3) Studio & Office Computer Upgrades
1.) Our on-air computer for THE Q90.1 has been running 24/7 for over 6 years! It's been a huge blessing how we've seen this computer run this long all day, every day! We are noticing signs of wear and want to make sure your Q90.1 station doesn't get interrupted with equipment failure.
2.) Our 2nd studio computer used for production, show prep & research and recording has been running since the previous owners had 90.1. This computer is running Windows XP. Gives you an idea how old it is! We're thankful it's been running for us for this long, but it is definitely challenging to keep up with the day to day demands!
3.) As the needs in our office continues to show itself, we are looking to add an additional office computer for donor devleopment, special projects, creating newsletters, etc.
Paying off Q91.5 Expansion
We are so thankful The Q91.5 is here! This past year has been exciting for the ministry of THE Q because we've been able to expand this message of hope for those in Northern Rhode Island and throughout the Blackstone Valley!
Since we've been able to purchase all the necessary equipment to launch THE Q91.5, there are some outstanding balances to take care of.
- Paying our lawyer firm who has been incredible and gracious to assist THE Q to work through the legal side.
- It costs $2,940 a month to run THE Q91.5. Most of this is still unfulfilled due to continuing to build a support base in Rhode Island. If 100 friends in RI gave $30 a month, it would fully sustain itself at a bare minimum.
