What Is Underwriting
What is Underwriting?
KJIL (Great Plains Christian Radio) operates as a non-commercial, listener-supported radio ministry. Therefore, we cannot present conventional advertising. However, we can acknowledge contributions made by businesses, individuals and non-profit groups including churches. These acknowledgements are referred to as Underwriting Grant Announcements. Listening to KJIL will quickly provide your business or church with an idea of what grant underwriting sounds like. The announcement produced by our staff may include: The name of the business Address Phone Number Hours of Operation Products and services provided
"Grant Underwriting Announcements differ from standard commercials because they cannot include a call to action, make qualitative statements about products, mention prices or promote sales events."
Underwriting announcements have proven to be an effective promotional tool for businesses to reach an audience that is extremely faithful to both KJIL and its underwriters. Be sure to visit our Directory of businesses that support Great Plains Christian Radio by underwriting a portion of the cost of our operating expenses. We praise God for His faithfulness in the area of finances!
