STAR 88.3. Ft. Wayne, Indiana: The Checks Really Were in the Mail!

WLAB helps build homes with Habitat for Humanity and Income with AdvocaceIn a time of economic uncertainty, can a Christian organization truly expect and attain positive results from a fundraising program?


Just ask Melissa Montana, General Manager of STAR 88.3 in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, about her experience with a comprehensive development plan put together by the team at Advocace.

Advocace Builds Results

One fundraising letter brought in more than $18,000 in donations, mostly from lapsed donors, some of whom had not given to STAR 88.3 in several years.

“We’ve seen income jump by more than 20% in just four months. Advocace is helping us focus on development efforts that are really getting fast results.”

Advocace’s Jerry Grimes sat down with Melissa and other members of her executive team to craft a unique plan which capitalized on STAR 88.3’s many strengths. The plan had to fit STAR 88.3’s resources on hand, so it was divided into three phases: a “crawl” phase, implementing basic strategies using resources already on hand; a “walk” phase, where more outside resources would be brought to bear; and a “run” phase, that will maximize income and make the radio station one of the top-funded Christian organizations in the region.
