The Electronic Gift Transfer program works in cooperation with your credit union or bank, similar to automatic teller machines, direct deposit of payroll and other electronic banking services. The transaction is accomplished without paper handling.
In addition to the convenience to you, this plan eliminates costs the Ave Maria Radio would otherwise spend on pledge reminders, postage and other administrative details. If you are interested in this program, please contact Tony Gerring, Director of Advancement Services, at 734-930-4528 or email him at [email protected].

If you wish to donate a vehicle using an online option, please visit this link. For additional information, please click this link to learn more about donating your vehicle.
By contributing $360 or more, Ave Maria Radio donors can become a Day Sponsor and can have a personal message broadcast on air on the date of their choice (provided that no other Day Sponsor has reserved that date). Your fifteen second message will be broadcast at least six times throughout the day you choose.
We usually require a minimum of fourteen days for your message to be approved, produced and scheduled. All Day Sponsor messages are produced in-house by our staff. Only one script is allowed for each Day Sponsorship. After your Day Sponsorship is broadcast, you may request an audio copy, which can be emailed to you.
For more information or to set up your Day Sponsorship, please contact John Biskner, Director of Development, at 734-930-4525 or email him at: [email protected].
A properly structured life insurance policy will allow your money to grow tax free and the death benefit will be transferred to Ave Maria Radio. Upon your death, your estate will receive a charitable deduction for the amount of the proceeds donated to Ave Maria Radio.
If you already own a policy, you may also assign the ownership from yourself to Ave Maria Radio. If you live more three years past the date you reassign the policy, the proceeds will not be included in your gross estate. If you do transfer a policy to Ave Maria Radio before your death, you will also get an income tax deduction in the year you make the transfer.
For more information or to set up a Life Insurance donation, please contact John Biskner, Director of Development, at 734-930-4525 or email him at: [email protected].

If you would like to make a donation of stock to Ave Maria Radio from your investment portfolio instead of cash, your tax benefits from the donation can be increased due to the fact that you will avoid paying taxes on any gain in the value of the stock. Thus, you will receive both a charitable deduction and avoid paying taxes on the appreciation in value of the stock you donate.
