Equipment Gift Registry

Our one-day Equipment Fundraiser has come and gone and God showed up in a wonderful way December 12! We wanted to hear from 450 people with $100 gifts each. We exceeded that goal thanks to your unbelievable generosity by raising $48,499 from just 389 donors.

If you had been hearing about the one-day fundraiser or were seeing it online but had not been able to give yet, there still is time. Equipment that adds capabilities to the project are identified below. If you see something that interests you or fits your level of giving, please donate now. 

We would be honored if you would make this a part of your year-end giving with a gift of any size. We have more project information in the Frequently Asked Questions section if you're interested.

Frequently Asked Questions

So what equipment needs replacement? 

We are focusing on two different projects:

  1. Studio Modernization: Taken Care Of!Axia Element with Modules
    Studio One controls the programming that reaches over 120,000 listeners every week. It runs every hour of the day, every day of the year. Studio Three is used for training staff and a place to produce and distribute programming similar to Studio One.  We've typically replaced studio equipment approximately every 9-years. The manufacturers have discontinued making some replacement parts for our 12-year old and 19-year old control boards. To bring our studios back up to industry standards, we will need replacements. The Axia Element has become our industries work horse.


  2. Distribution System Replacement:
    Telos Z/IP OneRight now our five stations (College Place, Lewiston, Spokane, Wenatchee, Yakima) are connected by a satellite delivery system that has been discontinued by the manufacturer. It is showing signs of needing immediate attention. We want to replace it with a redundant & secure IP based system that is state-of-the art. The Telos Z/IP Ones will keep us connected!

How often do you ask for funding to upgrade your equipment?

As the equipment needs arise, we let you know about them and you have been so helpful. Our tower is more than 30 years old, our two main sound boards are 12 & 19 years old, our satellite system is more than 15 years old.

Don’t you fund your equipment through your operations?

Over the years, we have taken a small amount of funding from operations to take care of equipment emergencies. We find ourselves at a point where equipment we have is not repairable anymore and manufacturers are not supporting such old technology.

We still hear you on the radio or over the internet, so why do you need to buy new equipment?

Our equipment is old and its functionality has been depleted. We feel very blessed every day that the equipment works, and don’t want to push our luck any longer.

Does the Equipment Gift Registry show the scope of the entire project?

Almost. In addition to what you see here, we are also working on replacing a tower and antenna for our KGTS station that broadcasts to Walla Walla, the Tri-Cities and Milton-Freewater. At this point, we have more than half of the $63,000 raised for that project. If you are interested in helping us with that project specifically, donate now.

If I purchase a specific part and PLR doesn’t get enough funding to purchase the equipment, then what happens?

Good question. We are confident our listeners will come through with funding to purchase everything on the Equipment Gift Registry. However if we fall short we have several options. We will choose a section, like the Studios, and complete that portion with what we have in hand. Then we will continue the fundraising off-air to take us across the line with the other areas.

Is the equipment good quality so it will last for another decade or more?

Yes! We have chosen excellent quality materials and companies to work with so we don’t have to replace things before their time. Our engineer has spent numerous hours looking for state-of-the-art products at the best prices.

In summary

Thank you for joining us in this adventure. What we know for sure is God will show up in a BIG way with this equipment fundraiser, and all of us will be delighted to be in the middle of this miracle. If you have a question we haven't addressed, please call us.
