Ways to Keep theLight On:

98.5 theLight has been on air in the Wodonga area for almost 30 years. We are supported by local listeners and business that live here with us in Albury Wodonga. Our license to broadcast is only limited only by the amount of support we have by the Christian community in Albury Wodonga.

There are three three ways that you can help keep theLight on and can financially make ends meet.

In no particular order they are;

  • Membership, Becoming a member is the main way we prove the government the level of support we have in the community.
  • Monthly partnership. Unlike the membership payment, any donation over $2 can be claimed back on tax. This monthly support helps us with a steady cash-flow and can help supporter give a larger amount by spreading it across the year. For further information, click on Monthly Partner below
  • Sponsorship or Advertising is the final way we can receive the financial support we need.Business owners can partner with us to help keep theLight on. For more info go to our Contact page by Clicking Here

Volunteers do so much for our organization. They manage our newsletter mail-outs, look after membership, maintain our transmission equipment, and contribute in many other ways. Please let us know if you would like to join our team of volunteers. The most noticeable part of our team is the announcers. You don’t need a lot of time; as little as 2 hours a week, and we will train you to use the equipment. To inquire about becoming a volunteer, go to the Volunteers Page.
