Donations Needed

With almost all the labor provided by the friars and other volunteers, we have very few expenses here at AirMaria. Nevertheless, we have some regular expenses that need to be covered and the need for more equipment. Here is a list of some of our more immediate needs:

Monthly Expenses

Electricity $100
Phone $100
Broad Band Cellular $60
Web Space and Services $110
Travel $300
Tapes, media and consumables $100

Total Monthly $770

Please take a moment and look at this figure. It is very low. Normally, any production outfit that is producing two videos per day would require huge resources, even many thousands per month. With the low figure you see here, you can be assured that any of your donations will be very well spent, going directly to the cost of delivering good Catholic Programming to the Internet.

Equipment and Software Expenses

Upgrading Current Computers $1,500
Editing Computer $2,500
Software $1000
Development of live technology, buying and testing of equipment that holds promise based on our research. $1,000
Hard Drive Video Camera $800
Gigabit Network System $500
Portable Camera Light $500

Total Cost Equipment and Software $7800

Additional Immediate needs:

Outstanding Radio License Acquisition Fees $3300

Please Help us with these critical expenses for this burgeoning apostolate. To reed more about what we are plaining on doing with AirMaria see our Recent Update.

If you wish to specify whether to donate to Equipment or to Monthly Expenses please specify in the “purpose” field in the PayPal donation page. Otherwise, benefactions will be spent to cover Monthly first and then Equipment.

Or if you wish to send a check the address is:

Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate
199 Colonel Brown Rd.
Griswold, CT 06351

Make checks payable to Indicate ?Air Maria? on the check. Donations are tax deductable.

Again, we thank all of you for your continued support.

Ave Maria!!
