Ave Maria Radio's Online Only Membership Drive

Ave Maria Radio is conducting an online only membership drive this month aimed at raising much-needed funds and increasing its membership numbers. The goal is to get at least 250 new people to pledge their support and join a growing army of members who are making Ave Maria Radio a national powerhouse for the proclamation of the Gospel and the teachings of the Catholic Church. By becoming a new member, you can be a part of this spirited movement of faith that broadcasts the salvation of Christ to people around the globe each and every day.

If everyone visiting this website made a tax-deductible donation right now – and there are hundreds of thousands of you – Ave Maria Radio would certainly meet its financial goals for the year in just 29 days! Think about it – the more you’re able to give, the nearer Ave Maria Radio gets to achieving its goals.

So do it now. Let’s put more people on the pathway to heaven. Become a new member today! Just click the donate button and make a difference! Stay tuned to this page to see our progress as the Ave Maria Radio online-only membership drive continues.

Ave Maria Radio relies on private donations from supporters like you to assist in the work of the New Evangelization. That’s why the law permits a 100% charitable estate tax deduction when you make a bequest to us in your will.

How To Give Through Your Will

Specific Amount – You can name a specific amount to give to Ave Maria. Your gift can consist of cash, securities, real or personal property – anything from land to jewelry to an art collection.

Percentage – You can name a percentage of your estate as a gift. The size of your estate may change from the time you make your will and the time of your death, so giving a percentage may be more beneficial than giving a specific amount.

It’s easy to set up a bequest gift through your will. You may make a bequest to Ave Maria by including the following language in your will.

  • “I give and devise to Ave Maria Communications all (or you may state an exact amount or a percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be held, administered, and used by the Board of Directors for the unrestricted support of Ave Maria Communications.”

The method you choose to make your gift should be designed so that you and your heirs can reap the greatest benefits. Some of your options include:

  • Residuary Gifts – Take care of your loved ones first. After all of their needs are met, give the rest (residue) of your estate to Ave Maria Communications.
  • Contingency Gifts – Name a primary recipient of your estate, such as your spouse, and name Ave Maria Communications as secondary beneficiary. If your spouse does not survive you, AMC receives your estate, avoiding the possibility that it will be distributed in an arbitrary fashion by the state in which you reside. You may also name any number of direct beneficiaries to your estate and name the Law School as the final contingent beneficiary. If the other beneficiaries do not survive you, your estate passes to Ave Maria Communications. Without this protection, the government could inherit your estate in the absence of other heirs.
