Partner With Us

Is your church or organization interested in supporting the ministry of KFUO Radio?

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17 (ESV) Our programs reach thousands of people every week, many of whom are Missouri Synod Lutherans. However, many who call or write indicate they come from a variety of religious or non-religious backgrounds. We have letters from listeners who have come to faith in Christ and become members of the LCMS because of programs heard on KFUO Radio.

Your partnership enables KFUO Radio to share the Gospel worldwide. Opportunities for partnership include becoming a Partner Church (no cost), Church of the Week, and Underwriter.

Join in partnership with KFUO Radio! This unique relationship allows you, an LCMS Lutheran Church who acknowledges the value of KFUO Radio, to join with us to further spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The KFUO Fund is our endowment meant to provide for the long-term sustainability of the KFUO ministry. We are already witnessing the evolution of radio from simple over-the-air broadcasts to a variety of delivery methods. Who knows what the future holds for broadcasting the Gospel message to the world? What is certain is that our KFUO endowment fund provides a way for you to ensure that KFUO continues broadcasting the Gospel for generations to come. Imagine, your generous gift today will impact the world long after you’ve been welcomed into the arms of Jesus!

As you may know, an endowment fund invests and protects the principle amount you give. Each year, interest earned on that investment (typically about 5% of the invested amount) is withdrawn to support the ministry of KFUO if needed or can be reinvested to grow the principle. Because the principle can never be withdrawn or spent, your generosity lives on in perpetuity. Each year partners like you will have the opportunity to grow the KFUO Fund providing greater and greater resource in the future.

Please contact Mary Schmidt at 314-996-1518 or (800) 844-0524 or at Mary.Schmidt@kfuo.org to learn more about this opportunity.

With a gift of $480 ($40/month) you can become a KFUO Day Sponsor.
