Your financial support is so important for a couple of reasons; Firstly, it helps keep 96five on air and continues supporting families with positive, healthy programming and programs like The Family Show School Excursions in Primary Schools and our Street Machines. 96five also provides an essential platform for other like-minded community organisations such as CBM’s Miracles Day and Operation Christmas Child.
Secondly, it tells us that our convictions are supported and shared by individuals in our community.
We are extremely grateful for your support whether you have given us a one off gift or donated multiple times. If you would like to officially join the 96five family we offer three simple ways as listed below.
