Frequently Asked Questions


What is underwriting/business support partnership?

Because 88.7 The Cross is a non-profit, non-commercial station, we air underwriting rather than commercials. While commercials try to sell the high points of a business, underwriting spots can only share information about what a business specializes in, etc. If you own a business and would like more information, please call our business line (318-387-1230) and ask for Sarah Hall, our Office Manager.

Are my gifts to 88.7 The Cross tax deductible?

Gifts to 88.7 The Cross are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Will I receive a statement of my annual tax deductible giving?

Yes. 88.7 The Cross sends a statement each January to all donors from the previous year. This statement will account for any premiums you may have received that affect your tax deductible giving.

Can I make monthly gifts directly from a bank account?

With our easy “One-Step Giving” program, you can have a gift withdrawn from a checking or savings account each month until you indicate that you would like to make a change. 

If I make my gift by credit/debit card, when will it be processed?

If you make a one-time credit/debit card gift, your payment will be processed immediately. If your gift is monthly, payments will be made when you process your gift online and all subsequent payments will be made on the same date next month. For example, if you give online and choose the monthly option on June 15, the next payment will automatically withdrawal on July 15 and so on.

Do I have to call each fundraiser to renew my monthly gift?

If you are a monthly donor (regardless of how you give), you do not need to contact us unless you would like to make a change to your giving.

If I prefer to give by mail, where should I send my gift?

You can send gifts to 88.7 The Cross at PO Box 3265 Monroe, LA 71201. Please make all checks or money orders payable to 88.7 The Cross or Media Ministries, Inc.
