Christian Music Broadcasters Announces Match Program
|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, October 18, 2019|
Due to the recent threat of Hurricane Dorian, the board of Christian Music Broadcasters announced the cancellation Momentum 2019 on August 30. The ramifications of canceling Momentum started out as a $561,993 loss and is now down to $252,609 because of considerate attendees donating their Momentum registrations and sponsors donating their sponsorships, as well as radio stations, label partners and artists giving generously above and beyond.
In the past week, CMB has been given a $20,000 matching opportunity from a friend of The Presidential Prayer Team who supports Christian broadcasting as a way to promote prayer for our nation. The money raised will be matched and will go directly to CMB.
CMB is now asking broadcasters to consider a gift to the trade group to help match what these friends are doing. CMB says "our prayer is to fully match this amount by Thanksgiving, November 28." The match helps CMB year-round to host webinars, summits and forums to equip them, and to develop new initiatives like CMB University that benefit its future.
