As a non-commercial, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we are not permitted to air typical commercials. However, the FCC does say we can publicly thank businesses for their donations and support. And though the wording is not the same as typical commercials, it is very effective for businesses in getting their name out to our listeners.
- Special Events
Our radio sponsorship packages include on-air messages and a presence on the Partners page of our website. All spots are 15 seconds and aired at various times from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Business sponsorships are done on a month-to-month basis, and no contracts are needed. We've found that a 3-month minimum is the most beneficial for growing your business with our listeners.
From time to time, we have opportunities available for various sponsorships of promotions and events. Currently, the following events are accepting sponsorships:
Ride for Hope
A motorcycle ride covering Putnam County on a Saturday morning. Sponsorships start at $100 per business, and can also include a rider stop at your location during the event. Proceeds to benefit Hope FM and A Women’s Resource Center.
Trot for Hope
A two-mile fun-run on Thanksgiving morning, now in our 6th year. Over 300 walkers and runners traverse downtown Palatka in support of Hope FM before the biggest meal of the year. Sponsorships are $100, $250, $500, $1000. Businesses can include items in the goody bags each participant receives, and has the option to put a booth at the start/end of the race.
First Coast Community Credit Union has supported Hope FM since before they were on the air. We are proud of our partnership and look forward to many years to come!
