Be intentional. Leave a LEGACY.

As believers, we have a unique opportunity to be intentional with how we spend both our time and our money. Here at Life 97.3, our mission is to be intentional in sharing the Gospel of Christ through media. Because we reach over 500,000 of your neighbors in the Twin Ports each week, a planned gift has the potential to affect lives for generations to come. This kind of partnership is called LEGACY GIVING.

  • Bequests through a Will or Trust
  • Charitable Gift Annuities provide income for life at an interest rate based on your age
  • Charitable Trusts provide income for individuals or couples during their lifetime
